I am trying to use debootstrap to install ubuntu onto an older laptop.
I turned off my swap and am attempting to install into this 128 MB
swap partition. I create an ext3 partition, then ran debootstrap
--arch i386 dapper http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu, which seemed to
install all the packages I needed. I copied /etc/resolve.conf, and
some other files (basically, as specified here:
then ran "chroot /mnt/lfs ..." and entered the change root. I updated
my /etc/fstab. Here is where I started getting errors:
I tried to run dpkg-reconfigure console-data. This fails with
"debconf: falling back to frontend: Readline, debconf: unable to
initialize Readline, ...). So, I assume something is installed
improperly, even though I did not see errors indicating this. So, I
attempted to skip this.
I then tried to run base-config, but this is not available, neither
without fully specified, and it is not in /sbin either. Is this
something that should be installed using debootstrap, or do I need to
install this manually? Or, is this not something I use under ubuntu?
Thanks for your help in advance.
