Re: Debian Netinstal Sid - Yet Another How To

That looks too easy ... gotta give it a run and see if S11 can break it.  big_smile

Configure the network
Auto-configure with DHCP? Assign IP automatically - typically Yes
Hostname: set your computers hostname
Domain Name: Input your local domain name

Dumb question - no wait, I've never done this before - not a dumb question.

I have a single home computer no local network, no router, just me, and a cable modem.

Hostname: Sector11
Domain Name: ??? - what's that?  Don't they end with a .com or something?

I don't recall a live CD ever asking.  Of course my forgetter might be kicking in.

Re: Debian Netinstal Sid - Yet Another How To

Nice job VastOne, it's now on my list of things to do today. smile

I'm just curious a bout a couple of things:
1. what is the advantage of starting with the stable businesscard iso?
2. how have you setup preferences and apt.conf?

Re: Debian Netinstal Sid - Yet Another How To

@Vastone
Few questions
1. I assume the network config would only work if the user is hardwired to the network.
2. Why businesscard compared to netinstall iso besides file size?
3. Why is experimental repo in the sources.list instead of unstable (sid)?
4. Can SpaceFM do 4 window panes? It reminds me of Q-Dir from windows. big_smile
5. Gstreamer replace flashplayer-nonfree?
6. You seem to have a lot of archivers/unarchivers listed. Wouldn't 7z be more suitable?

Overall, excellent guide! Very easy to follow and understand.  Sunfizz approved wink

Re: Debian Netinstal Sid - Yet Another How To

@sunfizz98

1. Not sure, since I have no wireless to test... I would guess the installer would/should detect and setup wireless as long as the firmware is setup correctly
2. The ability to choose Sid as a base install
3. Experimental is added along with Sid so that Xfce 4.10 and Iceweasel 12 can be installed.  It is not replacing the Sid Repo
4. 3 panes.  It is pcmanfm all grown up
5. Gstreamer and flash are two totally different animals.  I chose the libflash.so method because I have far fewer issues with it
6. The archivers are a small footprint and not in the way but there if ever needed.

Thanks.. I appreciate it.. smile

Re: Debian Netinstal Sid - Yet Another How To

Is there a benefit to using the tarball from adobe when flashplugin-nonfree is in the repos?  Unless I'm mistaken, the one in the repo is from adobe.

Re: Debian Netinstal Sid - Yet Another How To

With the tarball I have provided, I do not have the lag or choppiness like I have with the non-free.  I also have had other bizarre flash behavior that is gone using that which is from Adobe in the tarball

It is why it is separated for the individual to choose to use one or the other.
