[SOLVED] Choosing "Debian Installer" option by headless/CLI?

Postby _nobody_ » 2018-04-13 17:37

Hello to everyone,

After some time, I have figured out all the parts for:
How to run a pre-seeding config with Debian Installer (d-i)?
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=137198

But one, very last item, is for me still a mystery?! I could not run complete installation as headless, since I get the following GFX while installing Debian from .iso:
Debian GNU/Linux Live (kernel 4.9.0-6-amd64) <<======= Default Option
Debian Live with Localisation Support
Graphical Debian Installer
Debian Installer
Debian Installer with Speech Synthesis

I would like to bypass headless this phase, so the thread of execution will continue uninterruptible from .iso, running preseed.cfg file!

The above menu actually comes from .iso, from /boot/grub/grub.cfg which looks similar (simplified) to this content:
Code: Select all
menuentry "Debian GNU/Linux Live (kernel 4.9.0-6-amd64)" {
  linux  /live/vmlinuz-4.9.0-6-amd64 boot=live components "${loopback}"
  initrd /live/initrd.img-4.9.0-6-amd64
}
menuentry "Debian Live with Localisation Support" {
  linux  /live/vmlinuz-4.9.0-6-amd64 boot=live components "${loopback}"
  initrd /live/initrd.img-4.9.0-6-amd64
}
menuentry "Graphical Debian Installer" {
  linux  /d-i/gtk/vmlinuz append video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr vga=788 "${loopback}"
  initrd /d-i/gtk/initrd.gz
}
menuentry "Debian Installer" {
  linux  /d-i/vmlinuz  "${loopback}"
  initrd /d-i/initrd.gz
}
menuentry "Debian Installer with Speech Synthesis" {
  linux  /d-i/gtk/vmlinuz speakup.synth=soft "${loopback}"
  initrd /d-i/gtk/initrd.gz
}

Question here: how I can choose menuentry "Debian Installer" option using headless option/command line? Does out there such an opportunity exist??? :mrgreen:

Thank you,
_nobody_

The solution to this problem is the following: I need to modify the ISO to set the "Debian Installer" as default in the grub.cfg

What I am doing wrong here???


Everything. At the netinstaller boot screen, you have the option of choosing either "Graphical Install" or just "Install". Choose "Install" for CLI-like installer.

If that's not what you want, maybe you should change the title to something more comprehensible.

This thread is resolved. Please, admins, make it resolved (I was very ignorant posting this one, I must admit :shock:), and please, if possible also lock it!

Well, thinking is a process... Requires some time, some work/testing, and lot of patience! :mrgreen:

You can edit your first post, in the subject line, add solved to it, in this case you will need to shorten up the subject title though:
How to choose "Debian Installer" Option using headless/CLI?

Is to long, maybe :
Code: Select all
 (solved) Debian Installer" Options


The admins and mods do not usually lock a thread , there is no reason for that.
If the thread has violated forum guidelines , then they do that.
