Debian Installation :: Cannot Connect To Internet / Can't Install Packages

Jan 1, 2016

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.

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Packages With No Internet / Is It Possible?

Mar 27, 2010

I have a general question: can I install packages in my Ubuntu, just using the live-CD but no network connection?

I broke my Ubuntu(9.10) and now can not log in, so I want to reinstall gnome, unfortunately I could not connect to internet, so I wonder if there is a way to use the live-CD as a source for the new software.

I would be really happy if I don't have to preinstall the whole system.

Software :: Fedora Core 6 Won't Connect To Internet Or Update Packages

Mar 8, 2011

I have an old laptop running Fedora Core 6. I need to update it for a project at work. I am using my home network and a hard wired connection. I can ping my router, and ifconfig shows my interface is active and has the right IP address assigned. When I try to open the GUI package updater, it fails to connect. Opening an browser also fails to connect. My firewall is turned off. I suspect a service is not starting, but everything I can think of is running. why layer 3 is working, but my apps won't connect to the Internet?

Debian Installation :: Unable To Connect To The Internet Through Any Wireless Connections?

Dec 13, 2010

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: [40] 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.

Debian Installation :: Install All 20,000 Packages Of Debian 5.0.4 9n-newbie?

May 17, 2010

After installing debian 5.0.4 basic from first dvd, I extracted all other dvd images to hard disk and pointed /etc/apt/sources.list point to all these directories.
after refreshing using synaptic package manager, I got list of all 20,000+ packages, and did a
"apt-get -y install ......(all 20,000 names)". It failed due to some conflicts. So I used "--force-yes -f " option as well.

It went on for nearly two days to install everything. (in between due to power failure, something was done half way and was able to login to KDE boot option and see lots of software installed.)
After complete install - it shows a startup screen of Debian EDu - but fails to boot up.

Is there a way to install all softwares + all XWindow systems simultaneously?

General :: Install Packages From A CD Instead Of RPM Via The Internet?

Jan 30, 2010

I do understand that to install software on linux distros that the main way is to have internet connectivity and to download them via RPM or to manually do this in terminal. Can you install software by downloading it from another PC via CD and install it in your Linux PC from the CD? Reason I ask is that I do not have a WLAN setup on my Linux PC yet and would like to install some programs or drivers while I am waiting to get a WLAN adapter that is compatible with Linux. Can you convert drivers or programs to an ISO image that can be installed on Linux? Another reason is that I have read that Wine can be used in the absence of MS Windows to run certain or a few programs in Linux as well as assist Linux to recognize drivers of hardware that is utilized for MS Windows.

Debian :: Missing Packages - No Wireless Internet Tools

Feb 16, 2011

I downloaded and installed Debian Squeeze from a CD (a 700~mb file), but I seem to be missing a lot of things; mainly any wireless internet tools! I searched through aptitude and I couldn't find any sort of package. Do all copies of Debian (I downloaded the CD-1 file from a http mirror) have network tools such as network-manager-gnome?

What should I do next?

A few weeks ago I installed Ubuntu 9.10 (32-bit) onto a machine with Internet access, so it was easy for me to run the following commands to install OpenSSH and portmap:


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openssh-server
sudo apt-get install portmap

But now I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 (64-bit) onto a machine without internet access. How do I install openssh-server and portmap onto that machine?

Debian Installation :: Netinst Install Failing To Connect To Mirror

Jun 2, 2010

I am trying to install debian from a netinst cd. Everything seems to go fine except when the installer needs to connect to a mirror. It doesn't throw up an error, it just hangs a bit and then seems to keep going a lot quicker than i would expect. For example, when installing additional software, it gets stuck downloading the first few files for about 5 mins and then skips ahead and finishes the entire process in about 5 mins.

What I end up with is a very bare bones system when I fist boot into it, without any of the stuff that I had indicated that I wanted to install (ie desktop environment, web server, etc). The Internet connection works and I am able to ping websites including a number of the mirrors I tried during the install. However when using apt-get it just gets stuck trying to connect to the mirror and doesn't go any further.

I am currently trying out Debian in VMware Player and I installed it using the following method.

Image Used: Debian-7.6.0-amd64-netinst

In the check list where it lets you select Debian Desktop, Print Server, and System Utilities I think it was? I deselected everything.

After Debian installed and rebooted I logged in, elevated myself to su, and entered the following commands.

apt-get update
apt-get install kdm kde-plasma-desktop --no-install-recommends

and I get the error '$DISPLAY is not set or cannot connect to the X server.'

Ubuntu Installation :: Download Packages And Transfer To Non Internet Machine?

Mar 23, 2010

I have a server which is in an isolated LAN onto which I would like to install some packages from the Ubuntu Repositories.I realise I can go to and download them one at a time following the dependencies through but this is a bit of a nightmare.Is there anyway I can use the -d option of apt-get to download the files on another machine so I can transfer the lot over in one go?It is probably important to note that the server is running 8.04.4 and the other machine I have run 9.10 and may or may not have said packages installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From CD Fails / Needs Internet Connection / Not Using Packages On Cd

Oct 11, 2010

I use the CD upgrade method to upgrade my kubuntu 10.04 to 10.10.Not to mention,the ISO image of the CD is this one :kubuntu-10.10-alternate-i386.iso.At the first run I choose YES for the prompt asking for internet connection or whatever, but I immediately realise that I have chosen a wrong option, so I exit and restart the upgrade all over again.On the second run, I choose NO for the prompt , then the installation continues until it reaches the 'fetching files' stage. It pops up and says "The upgrade has aborted. Please check your internet connection or installation media and try again. All files downloaded so far are kept."

I don't want to reinstall the whole system again because I want my applications;I don't want to use the updater to upgrade because I have a low internet speed .
