The installation of - in this case Mint 9 - succeeds and the reboot goes well as well.
But after a sudo apt-get update / upgrade it goes all wrong and my partiontable is gone and can't do anything other than a new install.
I 've tried Mint 9, Xubuntu 10.04 and Mint 11 several times. Also followed the howto http://www.fit-pc.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=68&t=2026
What happends when the upgrade runs:
Code: Select all
... User postinst hook script [/usr/sbin/update-grub] exited with value 2 dpkg: error processing linux-image-2.6.35-34-fitpc2 (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2 Setting up libva-x11-1 (1.0.1-3ppa1) ... dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting: unable to install updated status of `libva-x11-1': No such file or directory E: Sub-proces /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2) <skip> dkpg: unable to access dpkg status area: Read-only file system
This happens every time. Something goes horribly wrong with grub and/or /boot I guess.
I tried also different partiontables. EXT2, EXT4, Gparted with GPT. Nothing helps.
If I then reboot I get:
error: unkown filesystem.
Anybody any suggestions?
