Help with issues regarding installation of Debian

Installing debian without internet

Postby Iam1996 » 2018-03-14 21:15

Hello!

I have a problem. I have only internet from my phone via usb CABLE so I can't install updates. I'd like to install full debian from USB, so that USB tethering would work when I install it so I still have internet.

Please if you can help me, much thanks for your help :)

I was using Android tethering option and installing Debian from minimal image, no problems at all.
Debian installer detects it automatically.

For start, please tell us what install documentation you have read, if any ?

There is no reason you can not install using USB tethering , that is what I use , and am using as I type this, we have no cable, phone lines in this area.
You download a install ISO, put it on a a USB, or burn a CD/DVD (that is what I used, I do have a optical drive). Then start the install, be sure your phone/device is tethered and connected when you start the install.

Key words "How to install Debian" copy pasted into your favourite search engine will reveal plenty of documentation on this.
With absolutely no information on your hardware or anything, there is not much else to say.

so your internet is slow. do you also have to pay for data transfered, or is it a so-called flatrate?
if you have a flatrate, i'd still recommend doing a full online update & upgrade.
if not, you can download debian images that contain a lot of software already.
but you can't really avoid upgrading every now and then, and maybe also needing software that is not on the dvd.

Do you already have an idea of the applications that will be installed on this terminal? Say, do you know what desktop environment and everyday applications will be installed? This will narrow the options of which images you should download.

For example, an application that you use everyday might be on the image #7 of the Debian collection, but you only need the first one to install a working graphic system. Not to mention that proprietary firmware is not even included in any of the official images.

Does this terminal connect to the Internet at all, or is it only used offline?
