Debian 10 and Gigabyte

Postby tilandr78 » 2020-03-13 20:31

Good day to all!
I want to install Debian 10 on my PC with a Gigabyte Auros Pro X570 motherboard
And I could not install, the problems started in the network controller section, Debian did not see my network controller, it issued a list of about 80 possible, but not one is suitable
There are no Linux drivers on the official Gigabayte website

I understand that the "NEW" hardware can not be installed?

Debian 10's kernel was frozen back in January 2019 so any hardware introduced after that date may not be supported. See also viewtopic.php?f=16&t=139003

Generally speaking Linux users don't need to download drivers because the kernel already includes almost all of them.

Most motherboards have realtek NIC ports that need firmware for Gigabyte speeds. Without the firmware they will work at 10/100.
I would suggest you try the non-free firmware netinstaller - it should take care of any fiirmware issues at install. If 10.3 does not work then the Bullseye alpha installer.

"I want to install Debian 10 on my PC with a Gigabyte Auros Pro X570 motherboard"

I assume the problem is the Realtek network card.

The solution is simple. Do the install without internet.

Follow the Debian 10 installation & Virtual Machine guide @

http://www.preearth.net/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=1183

Prepare a firmware USB stick as indicated in the guide.

If after the installation you boot into a GUI, then login to a console window as root, grab the USB stick containing the firmware, and slot it into the computer. Now mount the USB stick on the directory /mnt. Change into that directory and install firmware-realtek_20190114-2_all.deb with dpkg and reboot.

mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt
cd /mnt
dpkg -i firmware-realtek_20190114-2_all.deb
reboot

Worked for me.

If after the installation you do NOT have a GUI, then login to the terminal console and do the same thing. Then do

dpkg -i firmware-amd-graphics_20190114-2_all.deb

to get amd graphics working or

dpkg -i firmware-misc-nonfree_20190114-2_all.deb

to get nvidia graphics working.

@john123son: please stop spamming these boards with links to your crappy unofficial installation "guide", it's very annoying. Debian already provide a very comprehensive official installation guide which should be preferred over your screenshot-infested ramblings.

Hi Head_on_a_Stick;

I believe the official installation guide https://www.debian.org/releases/buster/installmanual is exactly the same one pointed to in the crappy installation guide you mention.

It is to be found in the passage:

Further information on the installation can be found on the DVD itself. Mount the DVD on /mnt with the command

mount debian-10.2.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso /mnt

Then it can be found at /mnt/doc/manual/en/index.html


And it is even automatically adapted to your installation type.

Cheers.
