I think you do this , it want the system up to date right?

if it is true , I suggest you go to

  "http://www.plugcomputer.org/downloads/d2plug/index.html"

to download latest kernel and rootfs to do this

due to every D2plug rootfs and kernel release has to do some test to make sure full system is ok than pop on web site, so if you want to get this form above web site will be better

Thanks Mentor, I believe I am past those steps (unless there was a new rootfs & kernel release in the last 24 hours).

What you suggest is exactly what I did.

Then I:

Code:
sudo apt-get update[code]

and:
sudo apt-get upgrade[/code]

and after this I have the error.

first of all I assume you want to used apt-get upgrade is want to get latest package to do development

but if you do this there are some side event

for example , there are some chip vendor proprietary package or lib in rootfs , I afraid even you solve apt-get upgrade error meaage issue , than your system

maybe not your expect, the chip vendor proprietary package or lib  will be overwrite form ubuntu server

so this is why I suggest you just download and upgrade kernel at rootfs form their download page ,not form ubuntu

so you don't need used apt-get upgrade to do the upgade , you just need to follow up user guild form download page to do

at my previous post I mention is

put on dowlaod page sue be verify , so I think it is suit for your development

Thanks again for your guidance mentor.  I will be "starting fresh" soon and will take your comments into account.  I am however left with a few questions.

Your guidance seems focused on the rootfs and kernel provided (understandable) to the exclusion of all else (not so much).  What about updates (esp. security) and packages I add? What sources should not change? I assume that I can check /ect/apt/sources.list... well, here it is,
Code:


# deb cdrom:[Ubuntu-Netbook 10.04 LTS _Lucid Lynx_ - Release armel+dove (20100427.1)]/ lucid main
# See http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes for how to upgrade to
# newer versions of the distribution.

deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ lucid main restricted
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu lucid main restricted

## Major bug fix updates produced after the final release of the
## distribution.
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ lucid-updates main restricted
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu lucid-updates main restricted

deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ lucid-security main restricted
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ lucid-security universe
deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ lucid-security universe
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ lucid-security multiverse

Is this ok?

Along the same line, once I do over, what will my available sources be?

What if I need to add another source - can I? Without breaking things of course.

The 'ports' for ARM7 in particular are what I will need to look for and add correct?

If the packages I want / need haven't been ported I will need to find an alternative (build from source) correct?

I don't have any real experience with building from sources, but may be forced to do that. I am trying to avoid this because it is another learning and time hurdle and creates a number of other issues in my case.

Thanks again for your help.

Peter

 if you want to get any package can't from rootfs has default soure.list

I think you could add this by yourselves

after you add source.list ,you could through apt-get or ubuntu GUI (system->administration->Synaptic Package Manager) to get/install what you need package

why I  suggest you don't used apt-get update , this beacuse too many package has been update at background, so there are possible has some chip

vendor  roprietary package been replace , I think you don't know which package cause , so you don't know how to restore it , but through apt-get install xxx, as I

 remember apt-get has parameter could restore what you just installed ,
