Can we get some community / more official debian help. If some one wants to get the stylus / touch screen calibrated on the gta02 that would be great. Oh and lenny works nicely if you don't want to use sid.  :) --[[User:Dbmoodb|Dbmoodb]] 16:54, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Feedback from Brian_252

Not sure if this is the best place for feedback...

Strange how debootstrap requires root (sid). Can that be avoided?

I remember seeing a umount /media/card command on this page which i don't see anymore. That's needed or you will get

/dev/mmcblk0p1 is mounted; will not make a filesystem here!

Fdisk will also complain

WARNING: rereading partition table failed, kernel still uses old table: Device or resource busy

I needed to umount and rewrite the partition table in order for /dev/mmcblk0p2 to appear.

Got some of these error messages while installing software:

Processing triggers for man-db ...
Can not write log, openpty() failed (/dev/pts not mounted?)
