Hi there.I'm trying to install 6.3 i386 with the interactive installer using the hard disk method, but I'm only getting the option for minimal install. Based on a bunch of re... [by AlecIs]
I am new to kickstart file, but my understanding of the process is that I
am supposed to be able to take the anaconda-ks-cfg file from the /root
directory, copy it to an accessible location, and point the install disk to
it, and it should reproduce the install I did originally.
I used the 6.5 minimal install ISO, copied and renamed the ks.cfg.
I would like to set up a minimal environment with apt-get then selectively install packages one at a time.
My understanding is that this is basically what the Debian installer does. Is this understanding accurate? If so, is it possible to have the installer (or some other program the installer uses) install only the bare minimum necessary to run apt-get?
I'm attempting to install 12.04 LTS Desktop on an old (circa 2005) Sony laptop computer (Pentium III, 512MB RAM, 120GB HDD, Intel 1400x1050 video, wired ethernet connection to internet) that doesn't support booting from USB nor from burned DVDs (only from burned CDs or DVD-ROMs). The full 12.04 Desktop ISO image is too big to burn to a CD-R, and a DVD-R is not an option.
I want to install Fedora 19 Beta on an internal hard drive on a 64-bit UEFI system without burning a CD or DVD. I have a desktop computer with /dev/sda is an SSD where I want my OS, and /dev/sdb is a HDD with lots of storage space.
I have installed squeeze 6.0.0 as a base install from: Network install from a minimal CD.
Debian -- Network install from a minimal CD
i do see a lot of information on the various #apt commands , yet is is all garble goop as far as trying to make sense of where to begin at to install commands/programs.
