Three dud floppy disks and one good one, a quick download of the Debian rescue image — mine seems to have vanished — and finally wyvern is back on the air. In the future I must remember to get these sorted out before fiddling around with partitioning!

Boot off the rescue floppy, rescue root=/dev/hdc1, login and run lilo, logout and restart. Back to where I was on Saturday morning…

circle has been giving me grief on the Debian unstable. It complains that python-gtk isn’t present, even though dpkg -l shows that its there. A bit of digging shows that they seem to have hard-coded python2.1 into a few places. Changed the python2.1 to python in /usr/bin/circle, and made a symbolic link from /usr/lib/python2.1/site-packages/circlelib to /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/circlelib and miraculously, it works.
