You've probably done a minimal installation of Debian, without X Window (what you call "desktop"). As the root user, type this at the shell prompt: apt-get install gnome This will install GNOME on your machine. If you prefer to install KDE instead: apt-get install kde-full Just for your information, this will add several hundreds of Mb of software ...

It is very normal, and it is because disk is in list of disks to be automatically mounted. If you don't want to be asked for password, you should remove encrypted disk from /etc/fstab. After doing this, you will be prompted for password only when you want to mount encrypted disk. Good luck!

I didn't bother researching how to import missing modules and such. That's a pretty steep learning curve for my taste, as I am only starting to use GNU/Linux. Instead, I formatted the UFD with ext4 using a healthy Ubuntu installation on another PC. I was then able to mount it on the patient PC, and from there I only had to copy the file. In terminal on the ...

I did have to go into the BIOS settings of the PC and enable "Virtualization Features" before the machine allowed CentOS 7 to install. There were problems involved in the dual boot ...

Part 1 Download Refind, and see the question I asked recently dealing with some of the issues you'll face. Assuming you're using Windows 8.1, you'll want to use the Refind CD-R Image. Be sure to extract the ISO from the zip file, and mount it in Windows 8.1. Note: You need not burn the image as Windows 8.1 supports mounting ISO files now like Linux has ...

That configuration is related to a major application category called Live Linux systems. Common implementations include Ubuntu Live CD (with casper) and its derivative, Debian Live (with live-boot). They are using layered filesystems aufs for /, namely tmpfs on squashfs. user@debian:~$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on aufs ...

Are they really identical? The built-in one you can find in /usr/src/linux/usr/initramfs_data.cpio.gz or extract it from the bzImage as described here: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Custom_Initramfs#Salvaging If you use that built-in one and use it as external one instead, does it work? If it's still different, is the kernel itself identical? (compare ...
