My data drive had some corruption as regards its file system tree, and i was forced to rebuild it. I figured I’ll just reinstall Kubuntu too since I inadverdently installed Ubuntu Desktop, which kinda doubled the applications I have on the menu.
Here are some of the things I did in order to remind myself in case my system crashes again:
- Make a dos partition writable - the options in fstab for the partition should be: user,exec,rw,umask=000 0 0
- Get Automatix and install some of the necessary non-free software
- Install packages used for compiling source code: sudo apt-get install build-essential
I’ll add to the list as I walk through the rebuilding of my settings.
