Re: RELEASED: BunsenLabs 8.1 (Hydrogen) Live ISO 32 & 64 bit (alpha2)

I've installed both 32 and 64 bit ISOs multiple times without a hitch. I installed to a testing partition, not in virtual software.

Downloaded the 64 bit an hour ago. I left the laptop to seed. Just came back and would dd it to another usb stick. First I'd check it in the live mode, then would try to install. I don't use virtual software, but try new isos in my hard disk. I'd come back later in the night or tomorrow. Take care!

Sorry, confused your issue with the kernel panic reported earlier.

Re: RELEASED: BunsenLabs 8.1 (Hydrogen) Live ISO 32 & 64 bit (alpha2)

Desh,

I had the same problem as you a few months ago. Debian install was running off of a USB flash drive, but then it failed to find it as the "CD". I won't pretend to know what the problem was exactly, other than the USB flash drive was somehow slightly corrupt in some subtle way, but I do remember how I fixed it...

I booted my main system, used gparted to repartitioned the USB flash drive, removed all existing partitions and then created one big partition for the whole drive, and formatted it with FAT32. After that was done, I used dd to copy the iso to the USB drive, as normal. Then Debian installed OK, i.e, it had no trouble using the USB drive  as the "CD".

...Ben

Re: RELEASED: BunsenLabs 8.1 (Hydrogen) Live ISO 32 & 64 bit (alpha2)

My eeepc running the BunsenLabs netinstall script version (which is awesome) is happily lying on a shelf all day and seeding the 64 bit iso.
I haven't tried that one out yet but I will as soon as my brain permits.

Re: RELEASED: BunsenLabs 8.1 (Hydrogen) Live ISO 32 & 64 bit (alpha2)

64 bit found the usb stick, went up to network, but didn't find wlan, only eth. Had to connect the wire. I had to search few boxes to find that wire, for I had completely forgotten eth connection. I only use wlan. Anyway, I got it installed.

@ tynman
I always use gparted on the usb stick, before putting a new iso in it. Thanks anyway. It was the same usb stick used on both 32 & 64 bit BLs. Only 64 bit allowed to be installed, and only through eth.

@ ungugr
One can seed without installing the iso and that's what I did.

@devs
It doesn't install printer support, says it cannot find the meta package.

I don't see what would be the benefit of using gparted before ... I mean, 'dd' will rewrite all this, won't it?

Honestly, I have no idea what's going on. You have it installed, but wlan0 has no connection? Or it does have a connection now that it's installed? So apt-get update works fine, but bl-welcome doesn't find the printer meta-package? This needs it's own thread.

Re: RELEASED: BunsenLabs 8.1 (Hydrogen) Live ISO 32 & 64 bit (alpha2)

In light of hhh's confirmation: @Desh, how exactly are you 'dd'-ing your usb stick? Are you sure you are doing:

$ sudo dd if=something of=/dev/sdX bs=4M
$ sudo sync  # and wait till this command finishes!

and not doing:

$ sudo dd if=something of=/dev/sdX1 bs=4M   # <-- here is the difference: 'sdX1' (wrong!) instead of 'sdX'
$ sudo sync  # and wait till this command finishes!

(substitute 'b' or 'c' or ... instead of 'X').

Note the frist way is correct way of doing it.

Re: RELEASED: BunsenLabs 8.1 (Hydrogen) Live ISO 32 & 64 bit (alpha2)

I've run into an issue with using dd to write the iso to the usb drive in the past. Interestingly enough, it turns out I forgot to unmount the existing partition on the disk first (i.e., /dev/xxxY) prior to using dd to write the image. Remembering this step as well as running sync after dd made everything work correctly.

Just wanted to say that the 64 bit iso doesn't see wlan, while the 32 bit one doesn't see the usb stick, while trying to install. I got the 64 bit installed through eth on my testing partition. I got the cups installed too. I can install Libreoffice and other apps through synaptic. I don't need the welcome script or the pipe menus to get stuff installed. I just wanted try this Bunsenlabs.
Now, I am off to try Semplice 7, saw it on DWW.
When you have the final BL isos, I'll try again, not worth trying the alpha ones. Won't trouble you guys until then.
Hope you'd get the final isos on as quickly as you can. Good luck!
Take care! smile

Means nothing. I'm using Unices from 1992, and still there are stuff I do wrongly smile Besides, your problem is so weird (I also have no problem installing BL in VM and on bare metal) that it is worth to check all things ...

But ... I certainly didn't mean to offend you  O:)

Thank you, Bronto, very much on the postbang write up. It tells one how to create a simple (or nimble) Openbox on Debian Jessie. I like what you've said there, "Certainly my idea of "usability" can be just mine, so you can skip this part freely."
No need of post install scripts or such stuff, just install what you want.
Next is to make a live CD out of it.

PS: don't know, whether I should've posted this here or on the other

I went through the Brontowiki very carefully. I like the one before the last screenshot. There is nothing "labs" in your wiki, so take off the labs part and keep it just Bronto. The distro/iso should be named Bronto without the labs part. Let others have labs. No need of any welcome scripts too. Let it have Libreoffice, cups etc installed default. Would you make a live cd for others?
Hope you do. smile
Thanks again, for the very enlightening Brontowiki.

PS: I still don't know, where I should post this reply.
Maybe, Bronto, you should start a new thread on Brontowiki or Bronto? You are the one, who did the Lion's work on Brontowiki, so you should start the thread.

Desh: Either in the postbang thread or if more techical you can open issue on github. I wouldn't make a cd, because the idea was to keep it Debian and since bunsen is way more complete than anything I could cook-up (not to mention maintain).

Is there a reason for using "Compton" instead of "Cairo-Compmgr" .. I just purged compton and installed cairo-compmgr and find it to be better and almost the same resource usage .. am I going wrong somewhere? can this break my system?

BL policy is to only use packages which are in the Debian Stable repos.

^ I can't find "cairo-compmgr" in the repos, where did you get it?

Or do you mean: xcompmgr?  That's in the repos.

OOPS! Ninja'd by Cap't Damo while researching.  sad
