I started following the instructions. On the first line

apt-get install kernel-package ncurses-dev fakeroot wget bzip2
I encountered 2 errors. First, it informed me that:
Reading Package Lists...
Building Dependency Tree...
Package ncurses-dev is a virtual package provided by:
libncurses5-dev 5.4-9
You should explicitly select one to install.

and it installed none of the packages

so, I removed the ncurses-dev from the install list and tried again. this time, all packages were installed, but it prompted me for if I wanted to stop gdm before I installed glibc. This was slightly weird, because I logged in as "repair" from grub. also, I don't believe gdm was running, because ps -A yielded:

PID TTY TIME CMD
1 ? 00:00:00 init
2 ? 00:00:00 ksoftirqd/0
3 ? 00:00:00 events/0

3083 tty1 00:00:00 init
3101 tty1 00:00:00 bash
3497 tty1 00:00:00 ps


I chose to install glibc anyway, but can easily start over if I need to.

Check the command you typed. It should be "libncurses5-dev" not "ncurses-dev"
