I'm trying to upgrade from 9.1 to 9.2, but have got stuck.

Although there were a few minor-looking problems on the way (it would not install from the DVD and I had to start with CD1 and then insert the DVD when it complained about 32 vs 64 bit, and 6 packages failed to update: libgcj, libidu, libmikmod, screen, acroread, and java2-jre), the main installation seemed to complete properly.

When it rebooted, however, it failed with a message saying that fsck had failed and that I should repair manually and reboot. However, e2fsk showed no errors when run manually on all partitions. Irritatingly, maintainance mode also crashes (at "Searching for info file ...") when run from the DVD and I've been using the CD.

Where do I go from here? (I paid money for this .... )

Thanks,

- Richard.
