    Today I installed debian on an IBM pc 300gl.
    Works nice except reboot or halt

    when the systems starts after running Debian there is an error message
    177 security warning assit control

    I searched the web and found:

    Can try that, so downloaded

    and set it up for PentiumIII then making the kernel
    after long waiting boot seems ok, reboot also

    but now apt-get doesn't work
    failed to resolve
    failed to connect

    looks like a problem with the dns (bind)
    during boot I see:
    kernel: warning: `named' uses 32-bit capabilities (legacy support in use)

    How to fix this problem or is there an other kernel to fix the first bios error?

    What's the output of
    uname -a
    ? Is your new kernel maybe for 64bit systems while the old one was for 32bit systems?

    just selected Pentium III not 64 bit

    output is:
    Linux router.home # 1 SMP Wed Aug 6 10:55:48 CEST 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

    And the old kernel was 32bit as well?

    Did you use the old kernel config for building the new one?

    thanks for your reply.

    I did upgrade debian from Etch to Lenny.

    There is a new kernel in Lenny and now the bios error is gone.
    Updated libcap2-dev

    bind us working now and apt-get also

    still some errors but they are cosmetic as mentioned in the url in your posts
