You can activate the network console of the Debian Installer via preseeding. The Installation Guide actually contains the following example: # Use the following settings if you wish to make use of the network-console # component for remote installation over SSH. This only makes sense if you # intend to perform the remainder of the installation manually. ...

I found that eth0 was not the name of my interface. systemctl enable dhcpcd@enp0s3.service solved the problem. Thank you very much.

Make sure your virtual box has a network interface provided to the virtual OS. (Settings > Network > Adapter 1 > Attached to NAT). It is for sure not the only way to do it but it might be the easiest for you. Also make sure that your that your network adapter is up and uses DHCP. For example the file "interfaces" could look about like that $ cat ...

I managed to solve my problem with debootstrap, here is a quick run-down of the process I followed. unmount usb Partition the USB (4GB) Zap out GPT with gdisk, as my board didn't want to boot GPT. Created just one linux partition, nothing else. I had lots of problems getting a usb drive bootable on my embedded system. mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb1 mount ...

The syslinux bootloader will boot Linux from a FAT filesystem and can be installed on a floppy. The difficulty is extracting all the relevant files from the distro install media, putting them in the right places and writing an appropriate syslinux.cfg. A PXE install guide may be a good place to start as pxelinux is quite similar to syslinux.

I think you need PXE installation (boot using network) for it. For that you need to setup PXE server on some other system/laptop. Refer my answer for more information about PXE Configuration.

I am not entirely sure what your question is, however, I am confident that I can answer your question. What you need to do is make an image of the partition that LFS is on. I would assume that your entire LFS system is on one partition, and thus you can just make an image of your partition and then burn that to a DVD or a USB drive. You would do something ...

You may be missing an alias for the ps7_scugic_0 instance within your device tree source file. If so, then all you need to do is create an entry in the device tree that tells the kernel which device driver your ps7_scugic_0 instance will use and also point it to where the custom IP is located in memory space. Please refer training video @ ...

Answering my own question: Switching from i386 to amd64 seems to have resolved the issue (and also the issue of the ports installation freezing). I originally did not use amd64 because I don't have an AMD processor, but I now see from the documentation that amd64 can be used with certain Intel processors as well, including the one I have.

The main requirement for files provided by a distribution is that they allow users to boot a computer using the distribution (either as a live system or an installation system, or both). On PCs, it's commonly understood that to allow booting a single image on as many systems as possible, the best approach is a combined El Torito/EFI image; this can be ...

I use some scripts to install Arch Linux sometimes. I wrote them, though, and I don't distribute them as I never bothered (nor particularly cared to bother) to harden them against all of the horrible things they might do to your computer in the event something went wrong. I imagine there are many out there like me - all of us selfishly hoarding our little ...

I recently tried just about every "Arch-based" distribution, feeling the same way you did. I wasted about as much time on each one of them as I would have setting up "the arch way." Save yourself the troubles that get installed by them and follow the guide. It'll be faster, leaner, and cleaner, especially since you've already done it before.

If you want to be supported by any contingent of the Arch Linux community, there are only two guides you can use to install Arch: The Beginners' Guide and The Official Installation Guide. Any other guide/script/tutorial used is not supported and never will be. Now then, that is not to say that you cannot use those scripts, but if you do, you are ...

I'm not sure what release you're using, but I'm assuming 10.1, currently the latest. The installation process is described in the 10.1-RELEASE errata: Create a /dist directory and mount the DVD. # mkdir -p /dist # mount -t cd9660 /dev/cd0 /dist Make sure REPOS_DIR is correctly pointing to your local repository. # export REPOS_DIR=/dist/packages/repos ...

Sure you can shrink the partition size of preinstalled windows and install linux debian or ubuntu as your wish side by side with the windows. Grub bootloader will help you to boot OS properly. For some persons, installing VM is NOT THE answer, it is depend on the Need. I personally have been using linux for about 8 years, 6 years on gentoo and last two years ...

Why not put your Linux machine in a VM. I personally run an iMac with 32GB of RAM, VirtualBox and run Windows 7, Windows 10, Oracle Linux and Sun Solaris. All work flawlessly.

Yes. You just need to adjust the windows partition to make some empty room for your linux install. You can adjust the partitions within windows or with a live disk. Whenever you monkey around with partitions you run the risk of breaking something but I have had success doing what you are trying.

You should boot into Windows and resize one of the partitions. The tool is at Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management and there under Storage -> Disk Management. After this you can install Linux Mint into the empty space.

If this is your setup, all you need to do is boot into Linux and let it know you have a new OS installed. So, keep grub where it is, on /dev/sda, boot into your Linux system and run: sudo update-grub That will generate output similar to this: Generating grub configuration file ...
