Debian Installation :: Squeeze - Netinstall Don't Support Reiserfs /home?

Feb 10, 2011

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 ... i/download.

Debian Installation :: Grab Multi Arch Netinstall Of Both Lenny 5.0.5 And Latest Frozen Squeeze

Aug 7, 2010

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?

Debian :: Squeeze Netinstall With Non-free Firmware?

Apr 4, 2011

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'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.

Debian Installation :: Compiling Drivers For A Netinstall?

Jul 18, 2010

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)?

Debian Installation :: Startx Not Working With 8.0 Xfce Netinstall PPC

May 22, 2015

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

to include

Code: Select alldeb jessie main contrib non-free
deb-src jessie main contrib non-free
deb jessie/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src jessie/updates main contrib non-free

then did

Code: Select allsudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade


Code: Select allsudo apt-get install xfce4 xfce4-goodies


Code: Select allsudo apt-get install lightdm

and finally

Code: Select allsudo apt-get install synaptic apt-xapian-index gdebi gksu menu
sudo reboot

after reboot the login screen pops up. I log in, and a terminal pops up over the login screen. I think the issue is startx is not working?

Debian Multimedia :: Make A Clean Install Of Squeeze - Tons Of Crap In KDE Sid

Jul 18, 2011

1 - Make a clean install of Squeeze.
2- Upgrade to sid
3- Run this command after installing xserver:

aptitude install kdm kde-10n-es kdebase

Then aptitude installs kdm, kdebase... and brasero, metacity, gvfs, gnome-control-center, evolution... (¿?) I only want to install KDE, why aptitude also install all this gnome crap ? And I say crap because I only want to install the KDE desktop, I use Gnome in my laptop =/ If you uncheck install recommends in aptitude you can make a clean KDE install.

Debian :: Missing UI Elements After Netinstall

May 1, 2016

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.

Debian Hardware :: BCM5700 Not Working For Netinstall

Apr 14, 2015

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.

Debian Installation :: Frequent Hanging After Installation Of Debian Squeeze

Apr 15, 2011

I have and old PC and for last years i had Debian Lenny on that and it was working great but after the Squeeze release, i downloaded the first CD image and did a fresh installation but after this it boots up with no problem (i must say since in Squeeze installation the option of creating a floppy diskette was not working properly i use SuperGrubDisk2 to boot the Debian), but few seconds after logging in, the system hangs (or maybe only the X11 since i use a historic nVidia TNT2 Riva graphic card!).

Debian Installation :: Debian Squeeze On The Dell Mini 9?

May 22, 2010

This topic began in the Debian Development forum here I have successfully completed both the install and the after installation configuration. I have a fully functional system on this little baby, inspite of the fact that wireless (Broadcom bcm4312), ethernet (Realtek) and sound were initially broken.

There is a lot of assistance out there on the web. In the previous thread, I was having trouble installing any debian on a usb stick. The issues that needed resolving were 1. Bad stick

2. Incompatible kernels between boot.img and .iso

3. The method of copying .iso to the stick that finally worked was wget My first successful usb install was Lenny. Even though I upgraded the stock system with lenny-backports, I could not get wireless, ethernet or sound working the only connection I could get to the internet was through my 3g stick and that was not performing up to it's capability. I manually configured wvdial to get that working.

I attempted an upgrade to squeeze several times and each time the upgrade trashed the system. I finally found squeeze boot.img and .iso files from an eee pc blog. This allowed a fresh install of Squeeze and I was making progress. The little atom processor would not handle the b43-fwcutter driver, so I compiled one from the Broadcom site written especially for the atom processor. Now I had cable broadband supplied wireless. I got my ethernet working with help from the Gnome site technical specs on Network Manager. Simply changing ifupdown=false to ifupdown=true in the network manager config file.

Sound was activated by help from a blog entitled "Debian on the Dell Mini 9" My head is spinning now or I would be more specific and instructive on all I did to get this baby up and running. If anyone asks, I may do a how-to.

PS: Posted from that Dell Mini 9 running Debian Squeeze.

EDITED: Correction of typing errors.

Debian Installation ::Can Only Get To Command Prompt With Debian Squeeze

Feb 10, 2011

Debian Lenny worked just great. That was my first experience of Debian. The installer recognised all my hardware and the system was soon up and running brilliantly with a few tweaks. Confident of Debian's reliability, I decided to move to Debian 6 and did a fresh install, with downloads of the new operating system rather than a distribution upgrade. The installation routines have not worked for the same computer system. I don't know if its hardware not being recognised by Debian 6 that were recognised without a problem by Debian 5??

At first, the boot-up flipped at "Waiting for /dev to be fully populated," there was a kernal panic then Debian disappeared. No signal was sent to the monitor and I had to switch off the computer manually
I was able to look into the Debian 6 OS from Arch Linux, installed on different partitions of the same hard-drive. I am able to overwrite the Debian files as root from Arch.
My i686 machine has PATA IDE drives.

Why are 2) dbus and the 3) avahi-demon failing? I need to get them started first so that I can get an internet connection and try and correct the problem with X and the wrong Nvidia driver. Is there some configuration I can do either from Arch, where I am now, or the bash prompt on Debian? Thanks in advance.

Fedora Installation :: Best Install Method - LiveCD Or Netinstall?

Aug 25, 2011

I have finally decided to bite the bullet and upgrade my current Linux system from Fedora Core 2 to Fedora 15. When checking the download page and from reading another thread there is apparently no isos' available for an set of install CDs. An iso is only available for DVD. Since my machine does not have a DVD drive that is obviously not an option. In the past I have only installed from a set CDs and I'm not sure which install method is the best to use. I do have a DSL internet connection and will probably need to increase my partitions sizes. Which install method do you recommend and why?

Ubuntu Installation :: Fresh Arch Netinstall Will Not Boot

Apr 17, 2010

I like Arch so far. The first time I installed Arch, everything went fine. I had a good openbox/SLIM configuration, but for some reason I just got a black screen w/ a mouse that didn't move whenever I tried to use the radeon driver (which works with my card). Anyways, I uninstalled Arch and reinstalled Fedora, but after my second attempt to install Arch (I have nothing better to do), arch suddenly wouldn't boot at all after a netinstall. Doing a core install went fine, but when I tried to update it and reboot, the same thing happened as the netinstall: The screen goes on standby and the CPU is spiked at %100 (I know this because my fan goes to full speed when the CPU jumps up too high - long story).

Not even doing that Skinny Elephants trick worked, so I'm guessing it was a complete kernel panic. I don't exactly know how to check for logs when the system is unbootable, but in retrospect I coulda just booted into a livecd. I just looked in /var/log of a recent Arch install on this computer, and there doesn't seem to be anything there. A file called 'lastlog', but I'm not sure it's anything. I can't open it with gedit or cat, so I'm assuming it's a garbage file. Adding 'nomodprobe' into menu.lst in Arch allowed it to boot, but I could only use the vesa driver with Xorg (using radeon caused a black screen showing only a cursor), which isn't ideal.

Ubuntu Installation :: [10.04] Netinstall Stalls After Choosing Archive

Mar 16, 2011

Using UNetBootin on Windows, I flashed a USB keydrive with the Ubuntu 10.04 Minimal CD and proceeded to boot up a brand new PC.

Problem is, after choosing Install, language/keyboard, and then a repository from which to download files, the installer just stops there. I tried two different repositories, to no avail. The network hardware is correctly detected and set through DHCP.

Has someone seen this? Should I use an other option?

Ubuntu Installation :: Netinstall / No Disk Drive Detected

May 13, 2011

After many hours trying to install Ubuntu(netinstall-64bit) i can not find any solution to get it working. I set-up via KVM and virtual device. Installation gives me error "No disk drive detected" when trying to detect discs/hardware. Someone told me i have to load megasr-source_13.13.1021.2009-1_all.deb by virtual-usb. It should include drivers for the controller not delivered by ubuntu-setup. After that I got to next setup-step partitioning, but it only shows me an IPMI-device which is either the virtual usb or cd i suppose.

System is one week old and I got it with pre-installed debian64bit which is working fine. So i dont think its hardware causing this.
