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
/usr/bin/circle, and made a symbolic link from
/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/circlelib and miraculously, it works.
