So, I thought was back.
Alas, some fiddly bits hung me up all day. The good news is, now i can complete the entire server rebuild process in a semi-efficient manner! Here’s how i spent my sleep time this evening:
10:45p – 11:00p : swap internal and expansion bay drives on Bellerophon so that I can boot it in SCSI disk mode and se the drives on my desktop machine, a G4 (that CPU saves hours!).
11:00p-12 midnight: install OSX 10.2
12 midnight – 12:45a: Run Software Update
12:45a – 1:13a: copy some user data from old installs in Terminal
1:13a – 1:50a: Install Jaguar Dev tools and updates
1:50a – 2:08a: Install Marc Liyanage’s PHP and MySQL packages
2:08a – 3:17a: Install miscellaneous perl stuff via CPAN
3:17a – 4:04a: poke at oversights until things appear to work. Write this entry. Realize I installed the wrong backup of the databases. Fix. Re-paste this entry in.
Ta-daa! Now I must start the fink install process and off to bed with me.
After I rise, I’ll be swapping the drives back and hoping Bellerophon boots OK. Until then the G4 is masquerading as Bellerophon. After I file my first round of stories with Cinescape, I may need to down things again to fix any further reticent bits and bytes.
Boy, I hope I get this wrapped up today.

bus errors, kernel panics, oh geez.
Look, it’s okay if you can’t think of anything good to write, you don’t have to keep pretending you don’t know how to run a simple blog.
Wha ha ha…
