Re: Debian Netinstal Sid - Yet Another How To

I did it eventually. Thanks VastOne. Takes a lot of the leg work out of it. Nice one. Feels great making up a whole system!

Re: Debian Netinstal Sid - Yet Another How To

I have no sound, nor wifi. I have Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network controller, which means b45 legacy it seems, and I can't seem to get it working. Now going to look at el_koraco's wireless how to, to see if that makes any difference.

Also, with sound, I've checked alsamixer and nothing is muted, etc. I will look into getting that working soon.

Other thing is compton- I've had a go at making it from git, but it seems quite a few of the dependencies are missing. I may, of course, naturally, be mistaken.

Re: Debian Netinstal Sid - Yet Another How To

Thank you, gentlemen.

I already have firmware-iwlwifi at the most recent version. Not sure what's up with that.

Will have a go at building LA's gangsta rap birthplace right now.

Liking Sid.

Edit: compton, naturally, giving me shizzle. Some pcre.h src/compton.h not found when I make it.

Re: Debian Netinstal Sid - Yet Another How To

Hey dura, have you tried to install Wicd Network Manager for your wireless?  Just a thought.  It worked for me...

Re: Debian Netinstal Sid - Yet Another How To

@VastOne

Can one who wants to perform a Debian Sid net install just follow the instructions in your original post, or would one also be required to wade through some of the responses?  I would like to give Sid a spin.

Re: Debian Netinstal Sid - Yet Another How To

I have had a hunt around to see whether I could find anything about the best way to to handle sid updating when wheezy moves to stable and then the shuffle up starts from the other branches. Is it better of waiting to do an update until thing settle down again? And then how to wait?

This might be helpful to others as debian moves to the new stable version and trying to maintain a usable/stable sid.

And opinions/suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: Debian Netinstal Sid - Yet Another How To

^ If you are on Sid, you are on Sid. That means you upgrade regularly. Just pay attention to what apt wants to remove after the freeze.
