Debian 9 Install - DHCP Error

Postby unstoppablegr » 2017-07-25 13:38

I am trying to install debian 9 through usb in UEFI mode but every time it tries to configure the DHCP it shows an error. I manually configure the network but still in the installer it cant download anything.. My motherboard is Gigabyte 970A-UD3P rev2.0 . This motherboard in order to install properly i have to enable on bios the IOMMU Controller and then after i boot the system to add a value on GRUB * iommu = soft * in order to disable it from bios. I also tried to use the non-free software but i still have the same issue.

You say you've tried to use "the non-free software" but what package in particular? it's very likely because you need a non-free package like, for example r8168-dkms.
But you first need to identify the network card using a command like:
lspci -nn | grep Network
or
lspci |grep -i ethernet

You don't have a live cd?

You want to do a network install? you could just install the basic system and then install the firmware afterwards, likely to be firmware-realtek

ah, the plot thickens.
Sounds like there's more than one issue then. So Debian9 is actually installed but you can't boot it?

well, just go to the Debian packages site and download it from there @ stretch/r8168-dkms, save it to a pendrive using your present connection —with Windows or whatever—and then install it as root using dpkg -i command.

You'll have to use the change directory command to go to media and then to find the package on the pendrive. if you're not too sure how it's done, see for example forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=73204#p407168

Yes, I've just simulated
dpkg -i r8168-dkms_8.043.02-1_all.deb
followed by
apt-get -f install
which shows that not only dkms but multiple dependences are required to install the package in question. It would be laborious to download them all manually and save them to an external medium and then install them with dpkg.
I would therefore suggest that —using your other system—since the network install image does not contain the packages, you download and burn a complete iso image to a cdrom, add this to /etc/apt/sources.list and then run apt-get update followed by the above commands.
