everything that depends on it.
After several hours of googling... I found the answer from launchpad.
The workaround are:
1. Shutdown the acpid (I removed it instead)
2. sudo killall hald
3. sudo dpkg --configure -a
4. sudo apt-get install acpid
Perhaps 4 months is a bit too short for a release cycle of a distro as
massive as Ubuntu...
To access it, I mount it using sshfs. Here is how I did it in Ubuntu 6.06.
$ sudo apt-get install sshfs
$ sudo modprobe fuse
$ mkdir /somewhere/localfolder/
$ sshfs -o allow_other user@remotehost:/somewhere/somefolder /somewhere/localfolder
To unmount it just use the normal umount command
$ sudo umount /somewher/localfolder
Now I have edgy repo, shall I start upgrading now... ?
I heard some bad rumors about upgrading dapper to edgy.
I think I need to do some backup first.

Hence, bash must go first :-)
It's also quite handy to hide whatever I am doing on the screen as I only need to press C-a d to detach it.

If it is a bug, then we are still in development stage and shouldn't have been released yet.
If it is a feature, then why some of us must go to hell because of it?
A: Well, probably deep inside our heart, there are lots of things that was meant to be patched by ourselves.
Hmm... a self-repairing apps...
Thank God we're not running Vista :p

The remaining space is quite large, so I put dapper & edgy as the target and start executing the script.
myscript: /usr/bin/perl: bad interpreter: Permission denied
what the h###?!
I am absolutely sure I have no problem with permissions as the same script also copied into the parent directory of
a running ubuntu local ftp repository, and it works.
After checking every possible permission problem I encountered, I finally came into mount permission.
I mounted the portable hd using pmount (it's a usb-connected external hd) and it turnout that the default parameter
used by pmount include a noexec option, therefore, when I mounted it using the classic mount, the script worked.
Now, one question remain...
How come a perl script is considered a binary executable, while bash script is not?
In blogspot, one can post his/her blog via mail. I like this feature because of two reasons :
1. The built in blogspot editor is terribly *cough*bloated*cough* slow
2. Due to aging hardware, opening firefox in my laptop takes zillion years
The problem is, the reason #2 is also the reason why I hate opening evolution in my laptop.
Few days ago, I installed mutt. The setup is not perfect yet, but I found myself quite enjoying it.
It loads extremely fast... that I only keep evolution just for reading html-formatted-mail sent to me.
I can also deal with junk mails much better :-)

I wonder if I can modify it to make it faster.
