I've done a lot of looking, but don't seem to find anything similar.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Have you try by performing a completely new install (by downloading a new
iso image and verifying the checksum before installing)?
I did a network install, so I only downloaded the first CD. No, I
haven't tried downloading this again - it's a good idea, and I'll do
that. I have tried installing the code several times, all with the same
results. Maybe I need to bite the bullet and download everything.
That's going to be fun! Thanks for the suggestion.
Maybe something got messed-up and VM can be very "picky" when they find
things they don't like. Also, debugging virtual machines is not an easy
(neither pleasure) task :-)
Yes, I know that - I've had to do it in the past on mainframes. I
agree, it's not a lot of fun.
I'm still pretty much a noob on Linux, so please be gentle
Suggestions provided by other list users (like testing with another
virtual machine) are also a very good idea.
- First, because is what many of us would have done in your same
situation (it is very rare that running a simple "ps" command halts with
"illegal instruction", that error message comes from the virtual machine,
so VM is the first suspect here).
- Second, because Virtual PC is not a very good virtual machine (it lacks
for many basic functions, technically speaking, there are better choices,
such VirtualBox or Vmware Server).
A quick view of Wikipedia virtual machines comparison chart states so:
- Third, because by you'll get further (and better) support, at least
from anyone here... being this a Debian user list, is not very probable
that some of us were running a VM that cannot be installed in Debian by
any means (well, maybe could be installed from Wine :-P).
I appreciate the comments, but people just don't understand. Another
virtual machine is NOT an option here. I either get it to work under
Virtual PC or have to toss Debian all together. There are no other
choices. The decision is totally out of my hands.
