Fedora :: Error Gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 When Choose A Minimal Install Then Add ONLY The Defaults Of The "GNOME Desktop" Package

May 3, 2011

I noticed that in Fedora 15 Beta when you choose a minimal install then add ONLY the defaults of the "GNOME Desktop" package, you will get this error: gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 has a required package:


When I look for gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 it is not on any installation menu list. I prefer gnome, but installed KDE and that worked. Any ideas of getting gnome to work?

Fedora Installation :: Boot - Grub Drops Into Its Minimal Shell And Gives A Command Line

Jun 12, 2009

I'd like to say I'm very impressed with Fedora 11. I'm a long time Linux user and I've tried many distros. But, I usually keep only the best on my laptop. For a long time that was Ubuntu but, I think Fedora 11 has made some key improvements over Ubuntu and I'm eager to switch. The problem is: I haven't been able to run Fedora as anything other than on the Live CD. Everything works perfectly and it installs but, when I reboot, Grub begins. Instead of booting, however, Grub drops into its minimal shell and gives me a command line.

I've tried installing it a number of ways now and have read much about the problems with Ext4 on Grub and took special care to see that Grub has its own, separate, /boot ext3 partition. Even then, no luck. My hardware should work fine. I've got an HP DV-5 with 4GB RAM, AMD Turion 64-bit dual-core @ 2 Ghz, and an IDE 250GB hard drive. I'm working with the 64-bit Fedora 11 Live disc with KDE as the Gui.

Fedora Installation :: Select Packages For Minimal Install?

Apr 5, 2010

I'm new to Fedora (not linux) and I was wondering how I would go about doing a minimal install of fedora 12. I downloaded the live disc but it doesn't give me installation options (I'm new to minimal installs so I don't know that much). I also searched all over looking for a fedora minimal install iso, something similar to the ubuntu minimal install iso that is only 12mb.

Fedora Installation :: Minimal Install Media - 'ext4 Cannot Be Used For Boot' Error

Jun 15, 2009

I live in a country where 1Mbit broadband is a premium service for large businesses. I am paying a little over $40 a month for a 128k connection with monthly capping. I want to download Fedora but the download is just huge for my connection, especially as it is used for work 14 hours a day. I have attempted the LiveCD and got the 'ext4 cannot be used for boot' error. I also have several other specialised distros on this machine and it's going to be a pain inserting a new boot partition just for Fedora.

Like it is possible with Slackware, can I just download the first CD of the Fedora 11 set and get a minimal install from this or does Fedora need the whole set of disks? Is there a simple enough net install option that I could use instead? I can't understand why they can't just release something like Ubuntu's alternate install CD.

Ubuntu :: Install A Minimal Gnome Setup Without Any Of The Usually Installed Apps

May 25, 2011

I'm trying to install a minimal Gnome setup without any of the usually installed apps. Last time I tried this it worked fine but that was a couple of years ago (see this thread if you're interested). The closest I've got so far is to install a CLI system from the alternate install CD and then run:

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude -y full upgrade
sudo aptitude -y install xorg gdm gnome-core plymouth-theme-ubuntu-logo ubuntu-artwork jockey-gtk network-manager synaptic

The problem is that one of these packages (I think that it's gnome-core) installs Epiphany, Evince, Evolution, Gwibber and Ubuntu One which I don't want. how to get a minimal system installed without these apps?

Fedora Installation :: Install Fedora 12 I386 Using CD#1 For A Minimal Install?

Dec 19, 2009

I'm trying to install Fedora 12 i386 using CD#1 for a minimal install. For that during installation I selected only Base. For some reason when I started installation it was trying to install 432 packages (Base has got about 80 or so packages). i can understand there might be some dependencies, but really that much? I kept going with the installation of 432 packages, but it finally failed on gtk2-immodule-xim-2.18.3-19.fc12.i686.rpm.I need just minimal install, so I can install LXDE later on by myself.

Fedora :: Horizontal White Lines Appearing In Gnome 3?

May 29, 2011

I have weird graphical glitches in Gnome 3. They appeared in RC3 and now appear in the final release, but they didn't appear in beta. Here's what they look like, there are horizontal white lines appearing in different places where they shouldn't appear:


it can be a result of this bug:[URL] but my glitches look different than the ones in there.

I have a Mobility Radeon HD 5650 video card. Should I just update my system regularly and hope it gets fixed, or is there some way to fix it by tweaking some settings or stuff? Maybe by installing the official ATI drivers? I'm not sure, but I've read somewhere that the official drivers don't work well with Gnome 3, is that true?

Debian Installation :: Minimal GUI Install With Web Browser

Nov 1, 2014

I have recently acquired a micro-sized-PC (A Dell FX130) which comes with a VIA C7 processor, 1GB RAM and 1GB onboard flash. The only application I need is a web-browser, I will use the FX130 to access a (very limited) number of web applications and to download/print-html-to-PDF - putting files onto a USB thumb-drive. I want to encrypt the disk to guard against tampering, and to run a restrictive firewall.

When I try to install the i386 debian-7.7.0 image - I run into the snag that it won't let me use guided configuration for the 1GB flash drive... and - when I guess at a sensible partitioning... I find that I run out of space during the standard installs. I note, however, that a whole bunch of significant applications (which I don't need) are being installed.

I am sure I'm missing something - is there an easy way to do a "minimal" GUI install that would make it easy to fit (just) a web browser (Chrome - ideally) and dependencies onto a 1GB bootable flash drive in a 'Debian-standard' fashion?

OpenSUSE Install :: Minimal Installation And Criptografy?

Mar 4, 2010

I want to install two Linux in my P.C. two partitions mounted to /(one for linux1 e one for linux 2). one partitions mounted to /home (for linux 1 e linux 2 the same time). Two partitions mounted to swap (one for linux1 e one for linux 2). One partitions for BackUP (with the size of 20gb). I have an HD of 80gb. My memory is 256mb. I want to know: The minimal size of swap. (i think that 300mb is enough) the minimum size of partitions mounted in / (will install a lot of programs in both). If i encrypt one partition, what is the difference? I can install two Desktops in the same O.S? I want to install minimum requirements, these programs that come in KDE or Gnome desktop, i don't wanna install they, i can remove from instalation from DVD? I can install Gnome and KDE in the Same time, from the instalation from DVD?

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Minimal Install On Netbook

Feb 19, 2010

I've been playing with Ubuntu for severla years, although I've been a casual user, always just installing from the live disc. I'm comfortable with apt-get, and not scared to format, reformat, get angry, calm down, reinstall, etc.

I'd like to upgrade my Dell Mini 9 netbook wti 9.10. one of my problems with 9.04 is space. with the standard install I'm using 3.7 of my 4 Gb of HD and want to try and streamline that. I've starting have problems upgrading my apps because of space to downlod the upgrade to.

I plan on formating and starting from scratch with the minimal CD (transfered to USB), but I want a clear recipe of steps.

Main goals:
- Standard gnome interface (not remix)
- Open office writer, calc, and impress
- Chromium

I know once I get started to type "cli" to install the basics, but then what? Many of the guides I've seen online are several years old. I can handle chromium and Open Office once I'm all up and running, but I don't want to install and then uninstall firefox, gimp, etc.

Ubuntu Installation :: Possible To Do Minimal Install With 3G Modem?

Jan 13, 2011

I recently downloaded the latest minimal Ubuntu ISO from the official download page.

Is it possible to do a minimal install if I do not have Ethernet capable internet?

I use one of those 3G (cellular) USB modems from companies like Verizon. Basically, it's a cell-phone, with the phone component taken out.

I did something similar with Debian recently, but I had to install the kernel along with the 'dpkg' package, to the HDD. From there, I had to reboot into the core system, install the packages like ppp, wvdial, etc, and then continue with a fresh install of the rest of the system.

There doesn't seem to be a way for me to either install the core files to HDD, or install the internet connectivity packages in the live environment for my modem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Why Is Natty Minimal Install So Much Bigger Than On Maverick?

May 25, 2011

I have a couple of 64bit Maverick installs from the minimal CD.They each have about 1100 packages installed. When I started to upgrade one to Natty with the Upgrade Manager, it told me it wanted to install 205 new packages (along with upgrading 877).205 new packages seems like a lot of growth in the minimal install.Why do I need those 205 packages?Then I looked at the minimal CD page where I saw that the minimal CD itself (which has lists of packages not the packages) grew from 15.6 to 22MB.So, did the minimal install just bloat up with Natty or what? Is there an even-more-minimal install?

Fedora Security :: Minimal Install - Encrypted Root Fs?

Dec 2, 2010

I like to do a minimal install, and then run some of my own scripts to install the rest of the packages I need, so to keep a lean system. When installing F14 with a partitioning scheme as follows:

/boot - 500MB
- swap - 2048 MB
- / - 15GB
- /home - Rest of file system - Encrypted

Everything works fine and the encryption works with no problem. However, as a friend pointed out to me, if you partition as follows:

/boot - 100MB/ - Rest of filesystem - Encrypted You are not able to boot the system when doing a minimal install. Meaning: you get up to the point to where you need to enter your password to decrypt the filesystem, and then nothing but..., well, nothing. However, and here it gets interesting, if you use the same partition layout, and you install the "Graphical Desktop", everything works fine. As I can not understand why this happens, I am currently testing a partition setup like so:

/boot - 100MB
LVM - Encrypted
- / - Rest of filesystem
Just to see if that works.

Anyhow: to make a long story short: It seems that the minimal install "forgets" to add some packages which are needed to decrypt the filesystem. Does anyone know which package this could be or why this occurs, so it can be added as part of the minimal install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Manually Upgrade Minimal-Install To Standard Desktop

Apr 29, 2010

Due to some CD burning/reading problems with the laptop I'm installing to, the only install disk that I have been able to get to work is a MinimalCD disk.Unfortunately this only works if I don't ask it to install any extras at all, so I can install Ubuntu, but it is bare bones, and boots to a shell, no GUI or anything like that.What packages do I need to apt-get to bring this minimal install up to the standard Ubuntu install? Does anyone have a list of packages, or a site that will tell me which packages to install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Minimal Install - Mini.iso - No Network Interfaces Detected?

May 9, 2010

Trying a minimal install with the mini.iso. I don't have a wired internet connection, only wireless from my iPhone which works fine with my full install of Ubuntu. The installer is not able to find my wireless connection stating "No Network Interfaces Detected". I did try to install yesterday in town with a friends wired internet connection and I got the same result. I'm able to get to the command line in the installer but have no idea how to start my wireless connection so the install can continue. I have searched here, and elsewhere on the net to the point of giving up.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wired Minimal Install - No Network Interfaces Detected?

Jul 18, 2010

I'm trying to do a minimal install via a USB flash drive. Everything was good until it tried to recognize my network (wired). It showed "No Network Interfaces Detected" (On Ubuntu and Debian). I wish to do a minimal install since I want to install the programs I want myself. Plus, I have a small flash drive.

I'm using an Atheros AR8151 PCI-E as my card (as shown by Windows). I also have a wireless, though I don't care much about that, wired will probably be easier. Through the command shell, I can see Ethernet Controller: Atheros Communications AR8151 v1.0 Gigabit Ethernet (rev c0). When I do plug the Ethernet cable in, I don't get the lights on during Linux installation but they do come on in Windows. If I need some additional driver, can I somehow add it to the minimal installation? I was looking through the log file and found that i82365 could not be loaded, a PCMCIA controller. I'm assuming this is separate from the NIC and interfaces between the bus and the NIC.

no idea whether it's because it couldn't find the drivers or because the controller was incorrectly identified. But I'm pretty sure this is why I can't get my network card to work.

Ubuntu Installation :: Perform A Minimal Install To A USB Attached Hard Drive?

Dec 28, 2010

I'm trying to figure out how to perform a minimal install to a USB attached hard drive. A full install works just fine, when I start the install from the LiveCD desktop, all the USB drives are visible and can be installed to. In the minimal install, the requisite kernel modules for USB storage don't seem to be loaded, therefore, my USB hard drive is not visible and cannot be mounted, partitioned, or installed to.

The reason behind this is I'm trying to build an XBMC install on a USB hard drive and want only the minimum backend OS that's necessary as some of the Ubuntu desktop software causes issues with some of the XBMC software. I've posted on the XBMC boards about this, but my questions have gone completely unanswered,

Debian :: Installing Minimal Gnome-shell After Stretch Netinst?

Jan 27, 2016

I've just installed debian testing on my computer (netinst AKA basic shell version). Now, how do I do a minimal gnome install? Minimal means, I don't need libreoffice or any extra bloat. However, I do want nautilus, gnome-settings-daemon and networkmanager (and of course, firefox!).

Also, is audio included or not in gnome-shell?

If I just install the gnome-shell package (with --no-install-recommends package), will it pull in gdm, Xorg, etc. or do I have to install them separately? Also, need to confirm whether my sources.list is properly set or not:

Code: Select alldeb http://ftp.security.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main
