Debian Installation :: Network - Find The Additional Files To Install

Sep 5, 2010

I have made a Debian minimal installer on a USB drive according to this manual: [URL] I have installed a minimal version of Debian, meaning text-only, with only the kernel, shell, filesystem, and a few programs. Now I need to install the rest of it over the internet. So here are my questions:

1. Where can I find the additional files to install?

2. Where can I find a manual that tells you how to install them? This manual doesn't say anything about that.

3. Are you supposed to install the files during the installation process, or do you get them online through the minimal Debian (using wget, etc.)?

Debian Installation :: Impossible To Find A Wireless Network During Install

Jul 30, 2015

I try to install Debian 8 on my desktop PC that has a wireless network card.I had already used this computer with debian 7 and I could use my problem-free network connection.

My network card is : Asus PCE-N10

During the installation, a message occured to ask me to load a firmware (rtlwifi/rtl8192cfw.bin) which is loaded from a USB key.After this, Debian-installer seems to find my wireless card but can not find wireless network.I have this message, translated from French: "The search for an available wireless network failed" and I can enter an ESSID but inconclusive.

Debian Installation :: Install Lenny Via Hyper-V - Can Not Find My Network Card

Sep 15, 2010

I am trying to install Debian Lenny via Hyper-V. I get to the point where it asks for the network card. For some reason it can not find my network card. I have a RealTek (RTL8112L PCIe Gigabit LAN controller featuring AI NET 2 built on motherboard).

For some reason it doesn't see it. My issue is if I continue without the network how am I getting the drivers? Unfortunately Hyper-V doesn't support USB. I guess I can try to burn to CD but not looking to waste a cd for 480k and not sure that will work as I only see a auto.sh and a couple other files under scr directory. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. This is a fairly new Motherboard/NIC so I do not understand why it isn't recognized. I know it cant have everything but Realtek is a fairly common nic.

Debian Installation :: Wired Internet - Won't Find Any Network Adapter

May 17, 2011

I just installed debian, durning the installation i opted not to connect to the internet since the large network cable was in the closet and i did not feel like standing up. Now i have finished installing and plugged the network cable in, expecting it to "just work", this is not the case. What needs to happen before the wired network connection starts working? also, the lspci output, appearantly it won't find any network adapter. I suspect this is the fault of my lazyness.

Debian Installation :: Reinstalling With Original CD And Additional Packages?

Jan 19, 2010

What is the simplest way to combine an original installation CD with several hundred additional packages that I have downloaded since the installation? My goal is not to waste future bandwidth downloading packages I already have downloaded. Bandwidth has costs both in time and money.

Background Recently I started experimenting in earnest with Debian Lenny in VirtualBox. I am new to Debian but not Linux based systems. I have seen enough the past several days with my experiments that I would like to migrate from my current Linux based system to Debian.

I installed the Debian 5.03 KDE CD to a virtual machine. In the past several days I have downloaded and installed several hundred packages since the initial installation. I have encountered no major hiccups along the way.

For future use and safekeeping, I copied all of the downloaded packages from /var/cache/apt/archives to a different directory. To become more comfortable with the Debian installation process, I want to repeat the installation several times using the original 5.03 KDE CD --- and all of the subsequently downloaded packages.

As I am new to Debian I am looking for advice and instructions for the simplest way to perform these reinstallations. I would like to perform them without any internet connection. If I understand correctly, I can copy the additional packages to a DVD and then use apt-cdrom to add the disk to my sources.list. Then I should be able to 1) use the Debian 5.03 KDE CD to perform the initial installation, 2) install the additional packages manually. If I understand correctly, something like dpkg -i * should work with the additional packages? Doable?

The "common sense" way is to somehow merge the original Debian 5.03 KDE CD with my additional packages to create my own personal Debian 5.03 KDE Plus DVD for my personal installation use. All I would want is to merge the downloaded packages into the original CD to create my own installation DVD. Nothing fancy or dramatic. Being new to Debian I don't pretend to understand the Debian Installer mechanism. Yet I can tell from the original CD image that I need to merge my additional packages into the pool directory.

I found the wiki how-to for simple-cdd. I started to run the app but stopped because I was unsure how much bandwidth the app is using. The simple-cdd tool needs internet access, but is simple-cdd downloading all the deb packages again? I don't want any of the installed packages to be re-downloaded when I already have them at hand. I'm not comprehending the how-to very well or the various options. I also want to perform a complete installation without an internet connection.

Fedora Installation :: Install Additional Packages From DVD?

Jun 17, 2010

I've installed Fedora from the Live CD (Fedora 13). The Installation Guide says that if you install from the DVD (or, as I understand it, the five or so CDs) you get the choice of installing lots more software. I've now got a copy of the CD. But how do I use it to install the extra software it contains? The Installation Guide says use the Add/Remove Software tool. But that tries to download stuff from the Internet. Nothing about installing from the DVD.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install NVidia Driver Via Additional Hardware GUI

Nov 9, 2010

I've seen may similar issues to mine, but some are different and others are identical, but have been resolved since in the repositories. I install Maverick from CD, reboot, update via update manager, reboot, install nVidia driver via additional hardware gui, reboot and I can't get into X, I get tty1 instead with a text login prompt.

dmesg tells me:
Code:
nvidia: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -1
purging nvidia-* and deleting /etc/X11/xorg.conf means that I can get back into X, but without any hardware drivers.
I have both an onboard and PCI-E nVidia graphics adapters but my PCI-E one is primary.

Debian Installation :: Can't Download Any Additional Packages - Update The Version - Unable To Connect To The Internet

Jul 14, 2011

I'm trying to do a net install with the latest release of debian - but my ethernet card is not recognized/the drivers are not available because I have a card that requires a linux kernel version of 2.6.35. This is obviously a problem because I can't download any additional packages, and I can't update the version because I'm not able to connect to the internet. I have installed it, but it's only text (which I assume is because I could not install the graphical interface, correct me if I'm blaringly wrong here). So what can I do to install debian on my laptop and be able to use my Intel Centrino Advanced-N 620 network card?

Debian Installation :: Install Script Can't Find Adduser

Jul 29, 2014

Just upgraded to wheezy from squeeze, and trying to resolve a few problems that appeared.

I get an error when installing pulseaudio (and a few other packages). Looks like the install script can't find 'adduser':

Code: Select allSetting up pulseaudio (2.0-6.1) ...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/pulseaudio.postinst: 22: /var/lib/dpkg/info/pulseaudio.postinst: adduser: not found
dpkg: error processing pulseaudio (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 127

If I 'sudo su -' then 'adduser' is on the path, so why can the install script not find it?

Debian Installation :: Failed USB Install - Can't Find CD Drive?

Nov 18, 2015

I just recently downloaded debian 8.2 live cd 64bit amd and wrote it to a usb stick with the universal usb installer from [URL] ..... The installer stops at the point of grabbing information from CD (right after choosing location) and since I have no dvd drive installed it spits an error out at me.

Now it seems to load the files right with the install icon from within the live mode but it gets cut off so I can't see about 1/3 the screens info. 4k monitor problems?

A bit of info, Installing on a Asus Maximus VIII Hero motherboard with ddr4, i7 6700k, win10 installed.

I'm rather new to UEFI bios options coming from a 2009/2010 x58 board, so I have a bit more reading to do.

Where to get working debian file that allows installation from the main initial boot menu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Network Install From ISO - Cannot Transfer Files With Apache HTTP

Feb 24, 2010

I have tftpd-hpa and dhcp3-server up and running. I just want to install server edition via network, from the host machine (my laptop, running ubuntu 9.10) with an ISO file (ubuntu 8.04 32-bit server edition). I managed to boot the client machine with pxe-netboot technique, but instead downloading all the files from internet, I need to do this process directly from ISO. To transfer ISO from host to client, I also installed Apache. I unpacked ISO file into /var/lib/tftpboot/server/. I created a link to the Apache root: /var/www

Code:
ubuntu@ubuntu:/var/www$ ls
returns => index.html server
server folder is the place where I unpacked the ISO.

My dhcp3-server has this setup and it works well with netboot, but I don't know how to add Apache to the formula to transfer the iso file from host to client. Firewall is disabled. This is my edited /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf file.

Code:
host pxeinstall {
hardware ethernet 00:06:29:DE:E3:CD;
fixed-address 192.168.2.4; (client IP)
next-server 192.168.2.2; (host IP)
filename "/server/install/netboot/pxelinux.0"; (relative to tftpboot)
} subnet 192.168.2.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
range 192.168.2.2 192.168.2.5;
option routers 192.168.2.1; }

When I pxe-boot the client, the process comes to a halt when tftp server is trying to access to pxelinux.0 file. I got thls error:
PXE-T00: Permission denied
PXE-E36: Error received from TFTP server
I have no experience with Apache... so I think there is a problem with my IP addresses.. Do I need to use 127.0.1.1 instead of 192.168.2.1 (my routers IP)?

Debian Installation :: UEFI Won't Find Boot Device After Successful Install

Sep 12, 2014

I installed Debian Jessie (netinst, daily snapshot) on my Acer Aspire V5-123 laptop in the UEFI mode with the secure boot turned off. everything (network, hardware, partitioning, ...) went smoothly to the last step, but after removing the boot media (USB stick) and rebooting, the firmware could not find the boot device ! The only thing I can think of, is that the EFI boot is not set up properly by Debian installer, but I don't know how to fix it.

Debian Installation :: PXE Install Lenny With Files From CD On Webserver?

Nov 1, 2010

I am having serious trouble getting Debian to install over our LAN using PXE/syslinux, a custom preseed.cfg, and the files from the DVD on a webserver. I think the problem is using the files from the DVD on the webserver instead of a mirror, but I believe this should be possible. I do not have enough space on the webserver to house an entire debian mirror.

General :: Installing Additional Files From Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD?

May 31, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 from the LiveCD--smooth install, OS looks great-elegant.Now, since I have to use dial-up, I need to install additional files from the LiveCD that aren't installed by default:

[LiveCD]:poolmainwwvdial wvdial_1.60.3_i386.deb
...and
[LiveCD]:poolmainwwvstreams [3 sw packages]

How do I get these files from the CD, and make them run on the Ubuntu installation? I've checked in the UI, and see various terms I don't yet understand. Do I extract the packages? Or do I open a pgm in Ubuntu, in which I specify the path to the files on the CD?

I'm going to use an external USRobotics 5637 USB modem that is supposed to work in Linux; just need to configure Ubuntu for this. I have the ISP DNS server numbers and modem is ready. I've seen online info, but I'm stuck at this very basic step.

Debian Installation :: Can't Transfer Files From CD - USB Live Install Error

Jan 18, 2015

I am trying to install Debian over Kali since in order to use steam, newest version of wine and a few other things causes a change reaction that would require about two-thirds of my main os re-written with non kali files which makes me a little uneasy.

I have downloaded the debian-live-7.8.0-i386-gnome-desktop.iso from torrent from the link from debian download listings at debian.org. and I put it on a 8gb flash drive formated with gparted to a bootable fat32 partition and is listed as being /dev/sdc I installed the iso to the drive uss dd using the following code

Code: Select allsudo dd if=debian-live-7.8.0-i386-gnome-desktop.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=4M; sync

now it boots to the flash drive just fine with only the gnome3 drivers loaded by the live os isn't fully functional with my system. Ie. when I log into any of the live modes it gives me a message that it was switched to gnome3 [fallback] I am using the current version of gnome3 desktop manager installed from source on kali with out any trouble.

Also when I click the graphical installer or the installer modes from the grub i get a background image with some sort of artifiacts in the top inchish of the screen then everything but the mouse freezes. But when I go into one of the live modes and click the installer in their it opens just fine but when it starts transferring files it says that it couldn't transfer files from the cd after all the language and localization screens at the beginning.

I did find a misc page on the internet involving a cruchbang with the same problem [URL] I went to the folder in the usb drive in question and it looks like since that was originally post something has changed or it could have been a crunchbang format.

So basically I am asking did I do a step wrong should I try a different way of instillation, or do I have a corrupted image? also I am unable to use disk media due to the type of drives and disks I have access to.

Debian Installation :: Can't Install Base System: Files Corrupt?

I downloaded the first Lenny DVD for amd64, wrote it but on trying the install on my laptop (Gateway NV5389u) I cant get past the installing base system step: I get an error that some files are corrupt / cannot be read from the DVD. I am wondering whether there's a way I can download a minimal version or just the files needed for the base system installation then use the same DVD to install the packages, coz I have a terribly slow internet connection it took me a whole 2 days to download, and I surely cant stand any more of it.

Debian :: Notebook Can't Find Home Network?

Apr 19, 2011

Hardware: Notebook
OS: Debian 6.0.1, installed very recently
goal: access vista windows shares in my home network

What would keep changing the domain to "lan" in network settings on my Debian notebook? I've tried launching network-admin from a root terminal, made changes, but after rebooting it reverts back to "lan". Perhaps it's irrelevant, but maybe it's the reason I can't see any other PCs when I try to browse the network.

Installed samba, but that seems more for setting up a share, than trying to access existing shares. At any rate, it did not solve anything.

Weird though, because immediately after I installed Debian, I was able to browse the network successfully. I've only installed zsnes and debian updates since then. I also installed the Broadcom firmware/driver needed for wireless today, but my network browsing problem existed prior to that.

Debian :: Can't Find Orphan Files From Deleted User?

May 10, 2010

I did a cleanup on old user ids on my server several months ago. One of the user ids was 1005.. When i check the quota page on webmin, it says that userid 1005 is using 8.40 GB on the system, but I can't find those files anywhere! The home folder was deleted with the user ids, so I'm not sure what the username was to begin with.If I check the passwd file - there is no 1005 listed. So i did a find / uid 1005 and I tried a find / -nouser command.. Neither list files owned by 1005. How can I find where those 8.4 GB of files are?edit: when I do a du -sch * to find space being used.. there is only 5 folders within the /home that could have 8G in there .. (assumeing du -sch shows all files, including hidden).. du -sch * from / shows only possible location is in the /home folder
