New Build

Postby Steelaworkn » 2009-12-19 19:29

Right now I am typing from my Debian build in VB with a W7 host. So far I have these things installed and working fine

adobe flash player for the debian back ports
Chrome
Java 6 JDK from Debain
Java 6 plugins from Debian
hplip from Debian


I'll see if I can post my source list here on the next post.

Here is my source list:
[code

#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 _Lenny_ - Official i386 kde-CD Binary-1 20090905-09:27]/ lenny main

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main

deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main
deb-src http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main

deb http://www.backports.org/debian lenny-backports main contrib non-free
deb-src http://www.backports.org/debian lenny-backports main contrib non-free
[/code]

The first part of this set-up is from:
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=47683 and I give mdevour credit for setting me up with the primary source list. I added the lenny-backports package from a little research.

Debian was not setting this up properly from the live CD so every time I do a build, my #1 thing to do on post install is set this up. So, this works. Once this is installed I can add adobe flash, chrome, java, hplip, and a whole lot of other things like VB guest additions.

Does any one have anything to add to this?

Is this a diary you're posting?

If you mean your sources.list, many include Debian multimedia repository for, uh, multimedia and stuff.
Code: Select all
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org/ lenny main

Edit: You need to install debian-multimedia-keyring to stop apt from complaining.

You need more caffeine in your diet. That will take care of your head problems. :P

Thanks. I knew I was missing something.

Here is the source list that comes with my initial live cd install:
[list]# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 _Lenny_ - Official i386 kde-CD Binary-1 20090905-09:27]/ lenny main

deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 _Lenny_ - Official i386 kde-CD Binary-1 20090905-09:27]/ lenny main

Hey Jeff, good going.

llivv wrote:burn a new CD

That's a good idea. We should have thought of that in your other thread.

Search for info on how to check an md5sum hash to make sure the iso is good. Burn the disk at a lower speed, e.g. 2x or 4x rather than 24x. I assume there's some command to verify the burn after. All it'd take is a bad sector here and there to make things screwy. And a Debian Stable installer that doesn't set up a proper default sources.list is screwy. :lol:

this time find a "Real Debian" installation CD

You did download your iso from debian.org or one of its mirrors, right?

Hosting a VM on Windows 7, eh? Kids these days... <shakes head>

Yes, I did get the CD right off of Debian. I saved the iso to my computer and link straight to that for the VB iso . I also burned a CD for my older desktop. It has the same source list on post install.

Pretty weird, but not impossible to overcome.

The cool thing about Chrome is, although it is not in the source list, it does update when ever I do updates. I'm so new, this goes right over my head.

llivv,

Thanks for looking into that. Have you had your Starbucks yet? :D

W7 works great on my Intel board with F6 Intel Software Raid by the way.

hplip did see my printer with zero problems. Works great. haven't tried all the features like scan and fax, but I'll get to it.
