Problems updating sarge -> etch
The following problems:
Upgrade of kernel from 2.6.8-k7 to 2.6.18-k7 broke the network. The e1000 device was all configured up according to ifconfig and route was correct but always no route to host.
Threw a 3com card in (disabled the onboard e1000) and added pci=noacpi nolapic to the boot kernel params
All DAV, svn dav, dav_fs etc for apache has died. Had to remove them from enabled modules for the minute.
digest auth module is loading but AuthDigestFile config is not recognized
needs to change to
AuthDigestProvider file AuthUserFile /path/to/file
Upgrade request-tracker3.4 to 3.6 - how to upgrade db?
Proftpd won't start since it can't route IPv6 to the machine (on a side note - why does every upgrade entail finding yet another way to disable IPv6?).
Update. It starts - this is a warn not an error. Disabling IPv6 see this post
