Installation with the debian-installer

I first tried with the installer provited by the debian-eeepc team.

Wifi

Unfortunatly, the current Debian installer doesn't support WPA(2) network. The driver (ath9k) is loaded fine, but d-i propose me to connect ton wep-only networks. I that things are gonna change in the near future.

Ethernet

With the current debian installer, the driver for the network card atl1c is not yet bundled in the stable installer. It has been pushed in the devel recently (on friday 24) and hopefully will be included in the next stable installer. After the release of the devel installer with my driver, I tried to start an installation of a debian testing. The kernel used is a 2.6.30-486. And this time ... it didn't work. The driver contained some typos that made the eth0 disapearing. It was even making it disapearing from the BIOS. The only way to bring it back was to unplug the AC power and the battery unit.

UPDATE: Since Kernel 2.6.30.5 (and 2.6.31-rc3), the module atl1c has beed fixed and is now completly functionnal.

The Debian-eee-live

Then I tried the Debian-eeepc-live. When I tried it, it was bundled with a 2.6.30 kernel (from backport). It worked great ! At least with the wifi. Wicd is the wifi manager. I just had to configure the passphrase and I got internet :D

So I decided to copy the live on my hard drive. Here is my little howto

Copying the debian-eeepc-live on the eee

First, boot on the live. Launch gparted (partition editor), configure and format your partitions. I decided to divide my 115GB remaining like this :

  • / -> /dev/sda5 8.79GB ext3
  • /home -> /dev/sda6 105GB ext3
  • swap -> /dev/sda7

Remember to create an extended partition to pour sda5,6 and 7 in.

I created some dirs and mounted those partitions :

# cd /
# mkdir newroot
# mkdir newhome
# mount /dev/sda5 /newroot
# mount /dev/sda6 /newhome
# for i in /bin /boot /dev /etc /lib /opt /root /sbin /selinux /src /tmp /usr /var /initrd.img /vmlinuz
do
    echo "Copying $i"
    cp -rx $i newroot/
done
# cp -R /home/user newhome/

Edit the fstab and replace all it content

# vim /etc/fstab

Add the following :


/dev/sda5	/	ext3	defaults,errors=remount-ro	0	1
/dev/sda6	/home	ext3	defaults			0	1
/dev/sda7	swap	swap	defaults			0	0

You will need an usb key to put the required packages for grub. You must have :

  • grub-common
  • grub-pc
  • grub2

Go to packages.debian.org and download them, for the release lenny of course.

Once you got them :

# cp /path/to/grub/debs/*.deb /newroot
# cd newroot
# chroot .
# dpkg -i grub*.deb
# update-grub2
# grub-install /dev/sda
# exit

Note

The notebook is shipped with 1GB RAM. I upgraded it to 2GB.
