[SOLVED]Planning to do a net-install

Crunchbang waldorf works flawlessly on my laptop, I am planning to do a net-install. I want to try creating a crunchbang install from the ground up with all my wifi-card, my bluetooth all setup, just as I would get from a vanilla cb-install. I was hoping if I could use this thread to lure you guys to help me out during the process big_smile

What I mean is I want to build a light system from the ground up, no GUI big_smile . Everyone here has insight on this, so please pitch in.

Thanks.

Re: [SOLVED]Planning to do a net-install

Wireless

https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/firmware-ipw2x00

You can search for other firmware packages on the same site.

mplayer2

Dead in the water, use mpv.

Webbrowser - w3m

Good luck with that. Try Opera 12 if your current browser feels too slow. Or Midori/Qupzilla if you enjoy pain.

Terminal - rxvt-unicode

Unless you have a config ready, I'd go with something VTE-based like tinyterm.

Automating detection and mounting of usb sticks and other devices - ? (no GUI filemanagers)

This is handled by udev. For drives, you can try devmon (from udevil) but it's bugged. On Arch I use functions to mount from CLI. You might also want to mount in /run/media so that old mount folders don't stack up (unless /media is already mounted tmpfs - check with mount).

Tips:
- http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?p=289318
- Make sure to enable wheezy-backports. If you mix sources otherwise, I will personally come to your house and dye your dog pink.
- If you want to print, you can configure CUPS from 127.0.0.1:631, no system-config-printer etc. is needed.
- Understand that "no GUI" is not a switch you do in one day.

Re: [SOLVED]Planning to do a net-install

Rather than mess around with firmware (tip: put the firmware in /firmware on the USB stick), maybe use one of the unofficial non-free netinstall images.

I love rxvt-unicode, but as @Alad points out the config is legion. For a simpler setup, maybe try st and use it with tmux (to provide a scrollback buffer, tabbing, etc).

I presume you've seen @johnraff's thread on this subject: http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=25098

Good luck!
smile

EDIT: just saw this thread about mounting (fnar!) on the Arch forums.

EDIT 2: Sorry, I just saw the bit about "no GUI"...
In which case, just use tmux as a tiling window manager for your console (no terminal required).
I like elinks as a browser (it can display images) & ranger as a file manager.

EDIT 3: http://linuxbbq.org/

Re: [SOLVED]Planning to do a net-install

Yep, forgot on the firmware ISOs. st is pretty bare bones though - in this case I don't mind some extra bloat.

udisks2  yikes

Sorry, I just saw the bit about "no GUI"...

I'd probably start with a simple WM instead of going right to TTY/tmux.  devil

Re: [SOLVED]Planning to do a net-install

@Alad: I think you ought to paint my dog pink ops  I tried doing a debian testing install by modifying the sources.lst, and it gave me a screen where nothing works(X in wrong resolution, no keyboard and mouse).

@Head on a stick: thanks for elinks, just what I wanted.

The install went well, tried with a non-free cd iso, and I now have a stable install.

Thanks guys big_smile
