Although better to wait for the stable release of Debian 6.0 squeeze, I updated the operating system of this server.
Unable to install grub on lenny, I had to edit /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf for lilo can read. The edit is like this. (cf. 4.1.6. Prepare initramfs for LILO.)
Gnome desktop and a trouble with networking.
I mainly use this server as a router and as a server. But for operating with Japanese script, I install Gnome desktop. When I upgraded it, the Gnome desktop is removed. So I have to reinstall it.
Network Manager is automatically installed then. But I don’t feel it good. This server is also a router. But the Network Manager isn’t good for me. I use the configuration of /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/ppp/.
When I download the IMAP folders (for saving mails) from my account on this server, I got this warning:
Filesystem notification initialization error — contact your mail administrator (check for configuration errors with the FAM/Gamin library)
I wondered what kind of error it is. But seeing rjbs’s rubric: mutt problems after debian upgrade, I installed fam. My imap server seems to want to install FAM or Gamin.
