The bug is that after I installed Squeeze, the Tex distribution totally died. And after I ran "upgrade-from-grub-legacy", the graphical interface and greeter no long work.
I think some of the documentation was unclear and left ambiguous instructions , which I probably guessed at and misinterpreted, although I googled for help for quite a while before.
I might just wipe my disk and install Ubuntu, which everyone at my job has already switched to, especially because I need this computer for work, and it hasn't worked with wireless or dual monitor.
I have a computer science and math degree, and also a couple years of computer science at Berkeley. I'm 50 years old, and I very much doubt any older person could do this, without extensive background.
Very poorly done! Documentation and software is just a mess, sorry to say.
After about 12 hours of working on this, what a waste of a day, and if things continue, probably for the rest of the weekend.
these bug are tagged squeeze without any wheezy/jessie/stretch tag
implying that the bug is not present in more recent Debian releases.
squeeze is no longer supported.
We are sorry that we couldn't deal with your issue in squeeze.
If this bug was incorrectly tagged squeeze, please reopen the bug
and remove the squeeze tag.
