Voyage on ALIX Setup Notes

Can’t login using SSH

When you can’t login using SSH after installing Voyage Linux on a CF Card, this might come from extracting the voyage-XXX.tar.bz2 not as root. This results in some /dev/ nodes not being created.

Simplest solution: re-extract as root and run installation again.

cpio failes to update

If you’re getting the following error after apt-get update/upgrade from Debian Etch:

Unpacking replacement cpio …
Replaced by files in installed package tar …
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/cpio_2.6-18.1+etch1_i386.deb (–unpack):
unable to create `./usr/share/locale/da/LC_MESSAGES/cpio.mo’: No such file or directory
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)

Then run these commands:

mkdir -p /usr/share/locale/da/LC_MESSAGES
mkdir -p /usr/share/locale/gl/LC_MESSAGES
mkdir -p /usr/share/locale/ko/LC_MESSAGES
mkdir -p /usr/share/locale/nl/LC_MESSAGES
mkdir -p /usr/share/locale/ru/LC_MESSAGES
mkdir -p /usr/share/locale/sv/LC_MESSAGES
mkdir -p /usr/share/locale/tr/LC_MESSAGES
mkdir -p /usr/share/locale/zh_CN/LC_MESSAGES

Now you the update should work…
