Lost my Amrel RT686 in a House Flood (motherboard whitescreened). Scavanged Hardrive caddy and other parts and and bought me another
Amrel but a | newer model.

Hardrive is from this thread below. I thought it was just too cool that my install carried over from Laptop to Laptop.


antix-core-486-a1-iso-available-for-testing-t2512.html?hilit=antix%20core%20amrel

I ran smxi and dist-upgraded, installed graphics driver and liqourix kernel.

Abort.


I boot OK into liqourix and have removed the 2.6.32 mepis kernel also. dpkg-reconfigure locales also to US.
This is running smooth but afeared of doing apt-get autoremove to gain 100MB of diskspace and break everything else. /etc/fstab is also OK (changed everything from /dev/hdx to /dev/sdx like /swap and everything else is UUID=). So spent some work on this.

So like I said. Smooth. So what do ya think of my apt-get autoremove?

Well. carved up drive with gparted and resized antiX / to 17 gigs and used rest of 10gig as /dev/sda1 as /data ext3. Reinstalled grub to mbr also. Did all this with a AntiX 11 rc1 live cd I have.

Code:
# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 30.0 GB, 30005821440 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3648 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x723de8aa

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1               1        1328    10665984   83  Linux
/dev/sda2            1329        1398      562275   82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda3   *        1399        3648    18072325   83  Linux


redited /etc/fstab again to reflect changes.

Code:
UUID=8bdcb4fd-4a43-45e9-be6b-dd455f91e802 / ext3 defaults,noatime 1 1
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0622 0 0
/dev/sda2 swap swap sw,pri=1 0 0
/dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 ext3 auto,defaults,auto 0 0
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
# Dynamic entries below
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,users,exec,ro 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,users,exec,ro 0 0


/dev/sda1 automounts OK on /mnt/sda1 in rox and pcmanfm now.

I did all of this to make more room for my install and am leaving apt-get autoremove alone till I figure out it is OK to run it.

Posting this in case of reinstall. How I got touch to tap to work on his Laptop.

Liquorix Kernel Killed tap on mouse pad. I fixed it by making a text file in

/etc/modprobe.d

Named it

psmouse.conf

whiich left me

/etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf

typed in it

Code:
options psmouse proto=imps


Now tap works

Seems safe to remove.

If there are apps you use like ufraw you will probably be able to install anyway.
Go for it!

Allrighty then. I use Mirage for viewer so geeqie can go to. I don't use ufraw but thought other apps may depend on it. I have this thread to reference if I break something. zenity was the sticking point for me. So gonna rev her up and go for it. :D


Edit: Nothing broke so far. :)

Learned a new trick with this Laptop. Hitting fn+f5 for one second turns the back light on keyboard so keys can be seen in pitch black darkness. Re-hitting those keys for one second turns back light off. Works in AntiX but suspect acpi in bios maybe is controlling this.

I had 2 Amrel RT 686 Laptops before the house flooded. One died and I scrapped it for parts (Parents learned me not to waste nothing) and dumpster-ed/trashed it.
The other still works and boots and displays ok. I might sell it though. Gonna have to try this trick on it and see if it has
the back light keyboard feature before I put it up for sale.

Do you have the libgdk-pixbuf dev package installed? I think you may need to install them and then do

gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache

http://developer.gnome.org/gdk-pixbuf/s ... aders.html

If that doesn't work, you could try dpkg --configure -a if you haven't already tried it. If neither of those works, then beats me.

tried the force in install option (apt-get -f Install) as I knew already as I knew regular install with apt-get was going to fail (had tried already earlier)

Thinking of installing and trying out aptitude next maybe. I might be looking at doing a reinstall (no LXDE this time) maybe later if I can't figure this baby out. I'll wait though first before trying anything till I hear back from you guys first .

Also, here is /var/log/apt/history.log in case it is of any use

I tried yesterday with synaptic (it would not uninstall).Will try again and post errors.

Below is the error synaptic gives when select remove all config files also.

Code:
dpkg: error: parsing file '/var/lib/dpkg/status' near line 13998 package 'antix-cc-utils':

line 13998 says

Code:
Package: antix-cc-utils
Status: install ok installed
Priority: optional
Section: other
Maintainer: antix community (www.antix.freeforums.org)
Architecture: all
Version: 1.0.0
Depends: zenity, antix-system-utils, gtkdialog
Recommends: antix-wm-utils | antix-misc-utils
Description: applications developed in the antiX community for antiX
Included:
-> antixcc.sh ( control for antiX )
-> antixcckeyboard.sh ( temporary keyboard changer for antiX )
-> antixccmouse.sh ( change mouse settings for antiX )
-> antixccslim.sh ( change wallpaper of slim login manager )
-> slim-login ( set slim auto login for a user )
-> wallpaper.sh ( set wallpapers for included WM's and slim )--------->>>>>line 13998 in geany

This package is included in the full version of antiX. It is meant
for people who wish to have or upgrade the antix utilities. This
package is not included by default in the base or core versions of
antiX.

Shady tree mechanic thought.
Wondering if I do a hunt and peck manual delete of antix-cc-utils wallpaper.sh Maybe? If this will fix my problem?

Scratch that. I moved it to my /home/harry/Backups folder instead of deleting it . No difference on errors.

For the

dpkg: error: parsing file '/var/lib/dpkg/status' near line 13998 package 'antix-cc-utils':
blank line in value of field 'Description'

you could go into the file and remove the blank line at 13998 and put a period in. You could also just replace it with status-old or with one of the dpkg.status.x.gz backups in /var/backups/ or just compare it with an older one to see if there are any differences

When you got the GdkPixbuf-WARNING, did you get a lot of the warnings repeating itself? If so, do you have the loaders.cache file and is it blank or have stuff written in it? If you have it and it's blank you could just try gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache without installing the dev. I've gotten similar error and was told to update the cache thingy

Perhaps this is helpful or not
