Debian :: Netinstall CD - How To Connect To Internet For Installation
Dec 18, 2010
I have internet connection - you need to open a browser & in the login screen enter your user name & password to get connected. The connection is via a ethernet cable. I have the netinstall cd for debian testing. How to connect to internet & get debian testing installed.
I'm not sure of what is going on here, I might be missing something obvious, but anyway my fresh netinstall of Testing doesn't boot without the USB stick that I installed from plugged in. When USB plugged in it boots without problems.
I would really like to try and do a Netinstall on my laptop with it. I know I could just download the CD's/a DVD, but I would rather customize it for my laptop, and I've heard that's the fastest way. The problem is that I have to compile the drivers for both my wireless and my wired internet. I have guides to compile both the wireless [URL] and wired [URL] internet. I was wondering if there was a way to compile these drivers in a Netinstall (preferably the wireless, but wired if necessary)?
I am trying to install Squeeze on a HP mini netbook. I have been trying to make a USB to netinstall Squeeze and cannot get it right. I cannot get past the message SYSLINUX 4.02 debian-2010.............. on booting.
I have tried to make the netinstall usb from this [URL] dInstaller I am also trying to understand this [URL] I have also tried using Unetbootin. Nothing works so far. Some simple steps to make a workable USB.
I downloaded and installed the debian 8 ppc netinstall on my powerbook G4. upon the option of which desktop environment I wanted, I de-selected debian desktop environment (I only selected printer and utilities.) After finishing the install I am prompted with terminal. I logged in and did the following:
Code: Select allnano /etc/apt/sources.list
Code: Select alldeb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian jessie main contrib non-free deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian jessie main contrib non-free deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
I installed the Squeeze with CD-ROM netinstall. My /home is in /dev/hda6, reiserfs format, and I want to preserve it, I didn't make backup, and there is not the reiserfs option in the partition editor of the netinstall, so that it would be formated the home, otherwise it is not used as home, and I can not even mount it. I try to edit /etc/fstab with the UUID of the device hda6 as home. I have just found reiserfs in http://packages.deb.at/squeeze/i386/rei ... i/download.
i'm trying to intall an old etch debian release using the netinstall netinstall debian-40r9-i386-netinst.iso. But i've got an issue while configuring the miror. Here where i'm blocked (it seems my archive miror is not right but why ?): in the previous screen, i entered the right path (i think): and as you can see in my screen cap of the broswer, the website of the archive is right, so where am i go wrong ?:
During the installation of Debian ( debian-8.2.0-amd64-CD-1.iso ) I couldn't connect to any mirror probably because the internet wasn't configured.
Thus, after the basic installation I wasn't able to install any packages ( trying to install sudo as root prompted me to insert the media disc - the USB drive I used wasn't detected going in an infinite loop ). Judging by the fact that I don't have a window manager installed.
It seems as though every time that I want to grab a multi-arch, netinstall ISO from the site (not very often) I have an insane amount of trouble navigating the site and finding what I want. I mean there's no freaking "downloads" section that is split into testing and stable with links to the mirrors and such. I want to grab a multi-arch netinstall of both Lenny 5.0.5 and the latest, frozen Squeeze. I cannot find either. In other words, I'd have to burn six CDs instead of two. Not happening. Can somebody point me to the images that I am seeking?
I've been looking through the Debian wiki, searching past topics in the forum, and generally googling, but all to no avail. I'm unable to connect to the internet through any wireless connections, nor through an ethernet cable. I installed the latest weekly image of Debian squeeze. After installation, I found myself on the command line. I installed gnome with
apt-get install gnome-desktop-environment I also tried installing gnome-applets, gnome-netstatus-applet, and gnome-nettool, but I guess they were already installed. When I open System > Administration > Network in Gnome, there's no connections tab in the Network Settings application.
Here's what I think is the relevant portion of lspci -v
07:00.0 Ethernet Controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01) Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 137a Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ23 Memory at c2000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K] Capabilities:  Power Management version 2
I'm one of those people migrating from Ubuntu and in Ubuntu I had to add a 'rfkill -unblock all' command to my rc.local file for this laptop. Not sure if that's relevant, but thought more info couldn't hurt.
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?
Every single theme has at least one or more broken UI element. In Arc, I'm missing highlighting in the context menu, and in Numix, some application's backgrounds are just completely black. All of these themes don't give me a urlbar. I'm also missing a lot of boxes. There is no box around the word "submit" in reddit, and neither around "cancel". If you go into the search bar, I'm missing the checkbox for "limit my search to /r/...". I know these themes work, because I had them working in my last install of Debian. Except, last time I used the XFCE iso instead of the netinst. Even default themes, like Raleigh, are not working correctly. I installed all the necessary packages like the gtk2 murrine engine, but if the default themes aren't working then something is definitely missing.
When I netinstall debian squeeze an asus netbook using using Unetbootin usb stick, at the end I am asked if I want to install grub on MBR. I agree, yes, but on booting I find that the netbook has not grub. I go back to usb stick that stole my grub and I use it to boot. I go to sunaptic and install grub, still nothing, the netbook won't boot without the usb stick.
I figured I'd rather do a netinstall for Debian, but it cannot find my network card. This has been the issue for Ubuntu as well. I did find this, but I haven't installed Debian yet: [URL] .... Not to mention it's 5 years old, and the links are obviously dead. I'm somewhat inexperienced with Linux in general, and I've searched for incorporating driver modules into the install but couldn't figure it out.
Where can I find the driver, and how can I incorporate it into the install? I wanted to do the netinstall to have Debian as minimal as possible.
I installed Squeeze on a server today, and struggled a bit because the network card needed non-free firmware (Broadcom something). The server had no floppy, so I had to go and get a pen drive and put firmware from non-free on it to get it to work.
I agree on the political issues on this, but sometimes it's non-free or nothing.
So I was wondering if someone know of a patched netinstall, or know how to make one? Then I could give the pen drive away to something more useful that keeping non-free firmware. Warnings and questions about the non-free would also be nice.
I tried to do Debian netinstall from minimum iso image in my brother's pc. My Network Interface card is Intel 82578DC GIGABYTE Network Connection. The installer gives a list of drivers to install but I don't know what to do. Should I download and install from first CD/DVD? Will it have appropriate drivers then?
I have debian 5.05 "lenny" and i need connect to internet through vpn [url]. Before i used windows 7, and i could connect to internet with vpn without any problems. But i have no ideas, how to connect to internet with vpn in debian.
I'm currently using Ubuntu and have installed debian using dual boot. In debian neither my wifi card appers nor LAN interface appears. I think during installation I'm not able to install the drivers. Can anyone help me to download the driver packages for debian (than I can download in ubuntu and then use pen drive to install in debian).onsider that I'm completely new to debian and have been using ubuntu for 2 months now and is familiar with packaging.
I have been using another OS but thought for Ham Radio Debian might be good however my stupidity took over right at the start.Have a live cd and works fine but I don't know how to connect to the Internet.Using DSL.
I'm setting up my first home server. I'm running Debian Squeeze and I can't get my machine to connect to the internet on boot.The only way I've been able to is by logging in and running the following commands in exactly this order:
sudo dhclient sudo ifdown wlan1 sudo ifup wlan1
My /etc/network/interfaces looks like this
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto wlan1
I should clarify that by not able to connect I mean that I see the DHCP discover attempts but it fails after a few attempts and says "no DHCPOFFERS recieved" So I tried putting the above commands into a script and invoking that script in /etc/init.d/rc.local and I can see that it runs but I have the same problem. I need to be able to reboot my machine as I'll be administering it remotely.
I just installed Debian 6.0.1a on an old laptop (Dell Inspiron 6000) and I can't get it to connect to my wireless internet.I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a separate partition on the same machine, and it has no problem connecting to the internet.
Is it possible to use connect to the Internet using my internal modem which i have in my laptop using debian.. Please do help.Ofcourse i can do this with the windows 7 which is also installed in my lap.. I have a MSI laptop with model no. vr440..[color=#404040][/color]
