Debian Installation :: Netinstall Only Boots From USB

Oct 21, 2010

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 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 :: 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 :: 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 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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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.

Debian :: Connect To The Internet From CLI?

Dec 1, 2010

I recently installed Debian Squeeze from the netinstall disc. Because I use a 3G modem, I had to manually install 'pppd', 'wvdial', and their dependancies.

The problem is when I dial out. It ties it up the CLI, preventing me from running aptitude/apt-get.

Do I also have to download a desktop, and/or xorg manually too?

Debian :: Cannot Connect To Internet On Startup

Jan 11, 2011

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.
