Hey, I don't need help!

Thanks, it has been a long time since first installs weren't horridly complex and I've installed distros hundreds of times, on a lot of legacy hardware since using my first distro in 1998, Red Hat 4.0. Devuan development has produced a stunner as of RC2, and I'm hoping to be using Devuan for a long time.

Told my buddies at USAlug.

ttyl!

Welcome aboard. smile

That bit of info about GPT & Grub not liking each other is useful info; there is someone trying to install another distro on an old machine, & that could be their problem. If I come across their post again, I'll mention it. smile

Yes, and it's especially nice that (most) changes while live don't have to be repeated post-install.

It depends on the old system, I am currently using an x200 with some custom changes to it, (libreboot ftw!)

so yeah...

this machine is eight or more years old.

I guess my point is, it depends on how old/how easily it can be reverse engineered.
