Post-basic install failed, system incomplete [solved]

Postby kegon » 2020-02-11 18:55

Hi,

I did a fresh install of Buster but for some reason my NIC wasn't supported by the new system after the basic install phase. Therefore only really basic set up was performed.

After booting the new system I managed to find suitable network drivers and installed some large packages in the hope of picking up the missing packages and config. It seems that this wasn't enough; for example, I changed my /etc/ld.so.conf and ran ldconfig but the ldconfig.service isn't running so local dynamic libraries aren't found. I suspect there are some deeper problems lurking.

What can I do to complete my installation.

Thanks in advance

Try
Code: Select all
# aptitude install ~pimportant ~prequired ~pstandard

And if you have a laptop:
Code: Select all
# apt install task-laptop

Thanks @Head_on_a_Stick

Just tried that and rebooted.
Didn't cure the ldconfig problem though.

(This install is not on a laptop)

Please change the title of the thread (because your system is now complete) and explain your ldconfig problem in more detail, thanks.

I thought it would be better to finish this thread and start a new topic about ldconfig.
Please find it at viewtopic.php?f=17&t=145256
