Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

Do you think this would work to install Crunchbang on a g4 ppc?

Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

@morlog It should work on any hardware if you can install a Debian core system there. There is a link to a "powerpc" .iso in the netinst section on that Debian page so you could give that a try. If it installs OK then the script ought to work too.

@protacticus cheers!

Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

This is awesome!
My server is old (early 2002), and the BIOS' USB support is really bad, it can't even boot a simple image.
Anyways, since Waldorf's iso is larger than 700Mb, I tried a bunch of stuff, until I found this.

I'm running the script right now, I"ll tell you when it's done.
Thanks.

EDIT:
This worked like a charm, thank you!

Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

Thanks for that.  It seemed obvious it should be possible, but I didn't know what scripts would apply the CB changes.  Does this leave around all the unused Debian packages?  I did this with Statler and ended up with an install about twice the size of a normal Statler.

Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

AFAIK this process doesn't remove anything, that would be up to you to trim your system later on.

Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

If I read correctly, this uses the Debian base install and then changes it to a full #! install, no? As I see it, there shouldn't be much overhead after all... At least, the minimal Debian installation shouldn't be too big. Or is the overhead coming from the apt-get cache/downloaded files? I might give this a go and investigate the results smile

Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

As WuFu says, the script starts with the Debian Netinstall base install - if you remember to deselect everything at the software selection phase (#3 in the instructions at the top) then there should be very few extra packages which wouldn't have come with the Waldorf iso. Maybe acpid, and a couple of dictionary files.

If you run the script on a previously installed system (not recommended, but perhaps doable), the process is purely additive. No packages are removed, but some config files are modified.

Anyway, please report any issues - all feedback is very welcome!

Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

Agree with John, I'd only get the cb-scripts/cb-pipemenus package from Philip's server and do all other things like package installation manually. It's maybe a work of 2-3 hours (downloads included), but you have better control over what is being generated on the computer smile

Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

Hey would you be willing to put this on github? I think it would be great to make it easily accessible. Since this is a script, compression isn't required as it is a small file and github bandwidth is free.

You could just git clone it and DL what you need.

plus I selfishly want to fork it and modify it!

Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

@notchuck error messages will appear on the terminal as the netinstall script runs. They might flash past too fast to read though, but they will also be recorded in a big file 'install.log' in the .cb-netinstall-logs folder created in your home directory.

After the script has run, and before rebooting, does your system still seem to be working? Can you open a new terminal with (Ctrl+)Alt+F2~ and run some commands OK? If so, try

cat ~/.cb-netinstall-logs/install.log

The script is verbose, so the file is very long. You might prefer to substitute "less" for "cat" so you can view the file bit by bit, and search for words (less is the standard reader for man pages).

Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

Hi brandon_mn thanks for trying the script out. smile
If you run 'startx' in the terminal you get, does a regular CrunchBang environment open up?
If so, it might be a problem with Slim somewhere...

Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

I'm not on Waldorf right now, but I don't think the default #! setup has a ~/.xinitrc, or needs one.

I'm not the one to ask, but it looks as if you've hit one of those dreaded xorg/driver issues.

Before diving into that, which will definitely need help from someone else, can we check if the Crunchbang netinstall script finished OK? Can you have a look at ~/.cb-netinstall-logs/install.log and maybe post the last few lines?

Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

Ah, yeah, that would make sense -- these stinkin' chromebooks are riddled with proprietary weirdness.

The script finished properly, but I'll check the section where Xorg installed and post that here, if there are any errors.

Yeah, this sort of thing is a bit out of my league as well -- thanks for helping me determine the issue!
