I am having problems installing debian on virtualbox. The installation step fails when trying to configure packet manager.
The guy in the following post had them solved by editing a certain file during one of the installation phases.
I am completely new to Linux, command lines in general and have no idea how to: "Edit /usr/lib/apt-setup/generators/50mirror.ubuntu and comment out the two lines with db_metaget and db_subst statements after the comment "Text is variable for Debian"."
could someone show some basic commands that would do it? :) I've already navigated to /usr/lib/apt-setup/generators/ and found the 50mirror file.
How should I proceed? How do I close the shell and return to the installation afterwards?
UPDATE: for anyone, trying to install linux on VirtualBox, install VirtualBox using administrator privileges. Then launch it with them as well. Worked for me :)
