Can't install any linux distro except basic Debian
I tried to install Debian 3 at my pc, and while it worked, it only installed the basic system.
When it goes trying to install the "everyday-use" packages it cames with this message:
When I do it try again, followed by messages complaining that NPTL needs kernel 2.6, that I should
Some error ocurred while unpacking. I am going tp configure the packages that were installed.
This may result in duplicate errors or erros caused by missing dependencies.
This is ok, only the erros above this message are important. Please fix them and Install again.
Press enter to continue
upgrade before updatting glic, how use apt to do it tec. And then goes back to:
"Some error ocurred etc"
The second problem is that my largest partition /dev/hda5,
which is working with xfs was not detected, there is nothing in fstab. And this is my biggest problem,
because I have vital data there and I ain't able to acess it no matter what,
as I describe more detailed in final part of my message.
The third prolem is that, despite what the debian installer tells me,
are sympton of a much more deeper and serious issue.
This Debian installation is my fourth and only slightly well suceed installation of a distro.
It al begain when I was rebooting my ubuntu installation to change some video setings,
when it corrupted the xfs file-ssytem and forced me install it again.
Since I don't have the Ubuntu cd into my hands, I tried other distributions:
Mandrake 9: It installed but comes with [quote] Error 28: Selected item cannot fir into memory[/quote
when I try to boot it up
Slax: Hangs up at the line
cups: started scheduler
All the lines appears when I try to boot up from the cd
(initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on filesystem.squashfs failed:
(init ramfs) can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashf) on //filesystems.squashfs
The last line is the only that shows up when I try to install Kubuntu.
Anyone has any idea abot what can be going on? I need to urgently find a way to acess the partition not detected.
Thnaks for the help
