Lessons of the week

Nelson's lessons of the week:
  1. Don't drop laptops. They don't like it.

    [On boot]
    /etc/init.d/rcS: line 50: 3096 Segmentation Fault $i start grep: /proc/filesystems: No such file or directory * udev requires tmpfs support, not started.
    [Later, after booting from a LiveCD...]
    $ mount /dev/hda3 /mnt/hda3 Floating point exception $ cat /mnt/hda1/etc/fstab cat: Segmentation Fault
  2. Make backups. Luckily, I have full backups from <24h before the disk ate itself, so I lose practically no data. And I'm still under extended warranty.
More posts probably coming soon.

Well done, Nelson.
