Re: Can't boot

That looks to me that it SHOULD boot. perhaps it is a grub problem.
we may be able to boot up in another way. i advise obtaining supergrub disk and gujin and trying them.
it might also be an idea to post your /etc/fstab

Re: newbie here with a couple of questions

open a terminal and write whereis Kover
or KoverArtist. it should tell you where they are located.
iro libgpod 0.6.0 it can't find it in the repos i imagine that it is not a .deb archive so you would have to extract: make: compile and install manually
