installing from debian-live-testing-amd64-cinnamon+nonfree.i

Postby ClintonWinant » 2019-09-30 22:19

I have downloaded debian-live-testing-amd64-cinnamon+nonfree.2019-09-30 08:37 and copied to a memory stick. The system boots from the memory stick with 3 options that include running from Linux Live, Graphical Debian Installer and Debian Installer. Either of the last two options lead to the error message "no kernel modules were found"

Starting from the Linux Live option brings up a desktop with an icon labelled install Debian. That installation evolves properly, but never requests a root password. Is there a way of setting a root password after the fact?

Any hints would be appreciated

How, exactly? Did you verify the image? The testing image can break from time to time, just like the installed systems.
