this confused me, so i went to check:
Code: Select all
sudo apt install debsums
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  libfile-fnmatch-perl
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  debsums libfile-fnmatch-perl
0 upgraded, 2 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 59.6 kB of archives.
After this operation, 225 kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]

this is on a debian server without GUI.
59.6 kB vs 111 MB --- hmm, something is fishy here.

Well I've done a bunch of stuff with this but off hand I believe that 111MB size came from Synaptic. . The operating system I put together is designed for the internet. It's as fast ass I've ever used , I'm happy with it and one of the key ingredients is making it small smaller smallest. So I stay away from 111mb files. Mine goes on a CD.

I dumped Debian it was a pain , I'm trying to find a way to get a clean install ,I would guess I've tried around 10 different times. I'm thinking I'm making a mistake on the install itself, I've tried it with two other Distros , one other distro and no distro , just itself . None worked. The DVD burn MD5Sum is right on the DVD

well it's too late now, but it would have been interesting WHAT these 111MB are for.

Please run the command on the Debian GNOME install you say is giving trouble instead of the antiX 16.2 one. Thank you.

Hey jbander, look to be in the enviable position of having a superfluity of questions at your disposal.
About 111 YB of knowledge behind question above i would guess.

I was polite in asking in for the output on inxi on Debian instead of what is obviously antiX, but someone with that level of "experties" shouldn't make those type of mistakes, and my veneer of civility is wearing daseinly thin.

Best quote from the wikipedia article on the effect: :D
The identification derived from the cognitive bias evident in the criminal case of McArthur Wheeler, who robbed banks with his face covered with lemon juice, which he believed would make it invisible to the surveillance cameras. Wheeler's incompetence was based on his misunderstanding the chemical properties of lemon juice as an invisible ink.[

This conversation moved around enough, to the point now that i don't know if everyone here understands that I was joking about debiman Dead Badger Comment. >Debiman You might have to step in here and explain the joke. before they start tying hangman's knots.

you were saying you installed various different distros, you even tried "no distro, just itself".
i thought that funny: trying to install "no distro, just itself".
the dead badger wasn't some clever quib, just the first vaguely nihilistic linux-related thing that came to my mind.
i'm happy enough you took it as a joke, but don't think too much into it.

in any case, i always liked that article, it's such a nice caricature of the internet-dwelling linux freaks, giving out street credibility points for the hardest install one managed...

I have problems with a dead Racoon, do you think the Dead badger tutorial will work ?
:mrgreen:
Minix 3 is not a distro, in fact it is not even Linux, so it might be a good option:
you even tried "no distro, just itself".
i thought that funny: trying to install "no distro, just itself".

Err,... sorry, Maybe I should have started a new topic. But with all the "joking"
going on, ...well any way, just kidding, so carry on. Sorry
P.S. I enjoyed that "Dead Badger" tutorial, thanks for sharing it.
