That means it wasn't entered correctly. Are you still having a problem with disk space?

Joe- how'd you like a terminal you can not only copy'n paste from, but *modify" too?

In order to format YOUR drive, you'd have to boot from usb. I know it's possible to copy the needed files there, then boot Pup'n run gparted to partition and format the drive. I haven't looked at it closely enough to know how it's done, though I suspect Plop is the utility of choice. This would be optimal for your situation. Hmmm....

In the meantime, that terminal is lxterminal.

Set your repos like in my screenshot, then OK'n exit.

Reopen and search.

When you click the pkg, follow like here, the bit about *choosing* pkgs- DON'T HIT UPDATE!

I know I can work out the usb bit, I'm just not there yet..

GOT IT!

This setup'll allow you to partition and format your drive.... granted- Plop can override your BIOS.

Won't boot from usb? Sorry- you don't understand. Plop's different.

What happened to: fdisk -l

That's a little "L" btw...

You grab lxterminal? SeaTab_X?

When ya get a minute install this. Tell me it opens with a ctrl+shift+s key combo.

Your ability to take and post screenshots is gonna keep us on the same page..

*Oop's.. your dwnld wound up with a *gz* extension and wouldn't install, right?
No problem- rename it with a *pet* extension and <wink> she'll go..
