My little xsplash experiment
I am trying to get a version of 10.04 that runs with xsplash and its associated libs and so forth.
I do not know what I am doing unfortunately.
The plan is to have 3 OSs. 9.10, 9.01>10.04 upgrade, and 9.10>10.04 upgrade leaving xsplash et al in.
I had this under way on my single drive external enclosure but the HDD has died.
So I shifted to my sdb internal. I had 9.10 on there with some others. I installed 9.10 where I had 2 of the others.
I installed all my standard stuff on the 2 new ones and upgraded them to current. I also installed bootchart on all three and will try to put the 10.04 version on the 9.10 install if things go.
The one that is to be straight up 10.04 is just finishing up right now (chroot apt type dist-upgrade).
I have the upgrade and dist-upgrade lists.
I am going to change the the sources list on the other and just do the upgrade (tomorrow) and then see if it boots.
Then I plan on trying to do the dist-upgrade selectively.
Does anyone have a clue as to if I can do this in synaptic by freezing xsplash and it dependencies?
If this step works I intend to copy the bugger to my test platform and try to step it up to 10.10.
