Atom Install Log


Subsections

Standard install with no issues: lang=English, location=Australia, kb=American English, no network, hostname=atom, erase disk, multi-user workstation, write partition changes, install grub, reboot.

Root passwd, user account, apt install.

Install sudo for wajig.

Package installs. StartX (choosing defaults for setup) has no problems.

Install kernel-image-2.6.8-1-282-smp, with acpi=off.

The internal disk failed. System started freezing up and the disk drive was “clicking.” A temporary install to the removable hard drive followed the above steps, installing kernel-image-2.6.11.

Default partition was:

/ 250M hdd1
/usr 4.6G hdd5
/var 2.8G hdd6
/tmp 361M hdd8
/home 27G hdd9

Installation repeated that of 17 Dec 2004 except that the disk was repartitioned to retain MS/Windows XP installation. During the partition step of the install: manually edit partition table, go with the current 40GB NTFS and 80GB partitioned for GNU/Linux using auto partition for a Desktop machine:

/ 7G hdd2
swap 2.8G hdd5
/home 70G hdd6

Choose to dual boot.
