Help with issues regarding installation of Debian

network interfaces not recognized during install

Postby e3k » 2018-09-04 18:45

hi,

i got a new work pc: dell latitude 5591 and tried to use the current debian net install on that. but the network interfaces got not recognized so i could not continue with the installation. then i installed arch linux without a problem. i am currently not at the pc but if you want i can send the lspci output.

what is wrong? is the pc to new for debian? why did arch linux have all the drivers?

pc could be too new.
could just require some non-free firmware. this usually happens with wifi, but can also happen with ethernet interfaces.
maybe you need a backported kernel.
yes, some output would be nice.

when it comes to netinstall, i'll almost always say go wired

wireless drivers seem to me to be mostly non-free

IME the Debian installer is able to detect that a device driver requires a missing firmware and prompts the user about it.

Maybe it's easier to download Debian unofficial non-free images including firmware packages? Here link. Good luck.

You have really really new Cannon Lake hardware, but I believe that the kernel, Mesa stack, and non-free firmware in stretch-backports would get everything working. Or you could just go with Debian testing.

I have the same 9560 Intel wi-fi, and it certainly needed a newer kernel and firmware-iwlwifi package.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: GIMP 2.10.6, Pale Moon 28.1.0, wine-staging 3.16, qBittorrent 4.1.3, Linux kernel 4.18.8, virtualbox 5.2.18

The network driver list displayed by the Debian installer contains only drivers for old non-plug&play devices. All plug&play drivers should be loaded automatically if present, so there is no point in being able to load them manually.

folks, op has abandoned us in favor of this newfangled upstart!

but i must say, i find it hard to believe that someone who has unsurmountable difficulties with even providing comprehensive information about a fairly basic problem, managed to install arch linux.
