Reinitialize Alpha Install
« on: March 27, 2009, 06:57:27 pm »
I have looked on the forums but cant find an answer to this hopefully simple question.

How do I reinitialize an install of 8.10 alpha? I have downloaded the whole install and have things up but want to run through the process again from after post-install.sh (to save downloading it all again). That is I want to start from the first reboot after and install by choosing your audio device and on.

Anyone have any ideas what I need to do.

Thanks in advance

D.

You can't do this currently. The alpha installer is a temporary solution for now, and will probably be replaced by release.

I doubted there would be anything simple, but if someone can you point me in the direction of what runs on first boot, perhaps with this, the post install script and some sql I can manually back things out.

Thanks Again,

Dave.

What you can do is, delete pluto_main database, and dpkg -i pluto-system-database. That will at least reinstall the original database. Maybe that helps. Try it an let us know
