I am trying to use DSL 4.4.10 with my old Toshiba Portege 3490. I wish to turn it into a hylafaxserver.
It has Lucent Winmodem and DSL just works with it on booting. So it is why I prefer DSL to other distros.
I wish to install Hylafax , however there is no ready made setup in Mydsl for it.
Additionally, I need help to:
1- Make DSL work like a normal distro, that is, to install on hdd and every change is being recorded.
Instead of frugal, I installed to hd using dsl-hdinstall script.
However, everything I install seems to be removed on next booting... Mydsl does not contain any software I install.
When I restart, the menu asks for backup/restore, which I do not want. I just want to have it work normal.
The grub boot string is , "kernel /boot/linux24 root=/dev/hda2 quiet vga=normal dma
I removed frugal string from boot but it just did not change anyting.
I do not want to use bootlocal.sh and install all apps on everyboot, their settings would go back to default right?
I wish to preserve them.
2- Instead of Mydsl , I am trying to use Apt-get and Synaptics, however, I get errors.
I am trying to find a mirror which is compatible with DSL 4.4.10 and uptodate.
For some reason I can not access archive.debian.org.
Therefore need to select alternatives. I tried the ones in the /etc/apt/sources.list
However I am getting the attached result. ( error.jpg )
I am trying to install, mc , nmap , vncserver, samba , cups , synaptics , hylafax-server
I can install all except hylafax from mydsl but next reboot , the installation goes away. Only dsl and uci files remain in mydsl folder.
Is there any way to install these packages via apt-get so they will be permanent all settings will be preserved?
Which urls , mirror are suitable for using apt-get in DSL 4.4.10 ?
3- Once getting Apt-get to work, I am hoping to install Hylafax-server , if only I can get apt-get to work well, then I hope to install all the packages with it.
