Hi icedtrip,

welcome back!
You mentioned that you also had some PMU shutdowns.
What kernel did you use?
Did you use the latest miboot ISO from the project files section?
Did you replace the miboot.image kernel with the one from my webspace?

I have to clearly say that the kernels from my project file are experimental.
I load them up and post the links to them so that I can get hints on the problems that still exist.

The kernel from the miboot.ISO file should be more stable than those with mediabay hotswapping support.

Please use also that one to find out if it has the same problems.

Tobias

That is awesome, but unfortunatly would already be beyond what Vito originally desired I believe.  Per Vito comment above, the benefit of doing this would be for the Ubuntu Installer.  Let it do everything for you.  Since Debian is already installed and this is a distro upgrade to the Ubuntu repositories, wouldn't we already be past all configuration abilities provided by the installer and base config applications?  I'm not sure an apt-get dist-upgrade would walk you through this stuff and reconfigure everything as if it were a fresh install, but I could be wrong.

However, back to Vito's point, Vito, are you not getting the Debian installer to autodetect hardware and set up automounts in fstab?  Maybe I am confused on what you are expecting out of Ubuntu that Debian didn't do for you?

As for Ubuntu, I may try this sometime this week.  Very nice indeed.
