Re: Installing BunsenLabs Helium-dev

@Sector11 - now you have given that description, I found a similar thing. It was the screenlocker, and no key tap would bring it back. However, it seems the dialog is still running, but unseen, so blindly enter your password and press enter hmm

I thought it was just me, so maybe it should be a Bug Report....

Try this before running the script:

setterm -blank 0

https://unix.stackexchange.com/question … xt-console

FWIW, on my Debian systems pressing the space bar brings the screen back (the mouse does nothing in a TTY unless you use gpm) but I presume you already tried that.

If `setterm` doesn't work then you will have to load a live image and chroot into the new system to apply the script, see the OP for details.

Re: Installing BunsenLabs Helium-dev

@ damo  - screenruler - go figure.   Yup, bug report.

@ HoaS  -  lol  lol Yea it was.  Thanlks for the "setterm -blank 0" idea.  Nope didn't know that about the mouse ... should have been obvious though I don't recall seeing a pointer.  roll

Read the chroot stuff and went ... HUH! ... WHAT! ... no thank you.

Next plan is to install D9NI and then get the Bunsen netinstall script and with nano eliminate some stuff not wanted .... look for smoke on the horizon.    cool

Edit @damo & HoaS - maybe the installer script could "setterm -blank 0" as well?  Just s thought.

If my suggestion works on your machine, this diff should fix the problem:

Puffy: ~/git/bunsen-netinstall $ diff install install.orig
29,30d28
< # If running in a TTY, disable screen blanking
< [[ "$TERM" = "linux" ]] && setterm -blank 0
Puffy: ~/git/bunsen-netinstall 1$

Probably best to leave that to John though...

Re: Installing BunsenLabs Helium-dev

Yea, I'll not touch it ... but will be trying the "setterm -blank 0" just as soon as D9NI is installed (starting that in moments.

Re: Installing BunsenLabs Helium-dev

Project on hold for questions.

1. Are the files preceded by # in ~/bunsen-netinstall-helium-dev/pkgs-norecs NOT going to be installed OR are they scheduled to be installed with programs in ~/bunsen-netinstall-helium-dev/pkgs-recs?

With this in mind:

2. How safe/unsafe is it to remove these:

Re: Installing BunsenLabs Helium-dev

The no-recs list is from Hydrogen, so the commented-out ones are packages that either cause problems with Stretch, or may no longer be required (or desired), or have been replaced by others in Stretch. @johnraff or @HoaS will know better than me though hmm

The ones you want to remove look OK to me, but do it with the '-s/--simulate' switch to see what may happen. For 'btrfs-tools', at least:

This is a transitional dummy package. It can safely be removed.

Re: Installing BunsenLabs Helium-dev

While no-recs may be a part of Hydrogen, it is in the bunsen-netinstall-helium-dev.tar.gz package, hence my asking.

btrfs-tools was ripped out of BL a while back with no problems.  Should not have been in that list.  I'm making a list of files I can safely remove as "not needed/wanted" by matching anything that is also in my personal "install" script.

Thanks damo.

Yes, we should replace that with btrfs-progs.

@S11, you can remove that list if you want, just let us know if anything doesn't work, eh?

Re: Installing BunsenLabs Helium-dev

I will keep everyone notified here.  My "exclude" list is now up to: 55 programs.  Some removed because I have a my own "welcome" script called "ainstall" (auto install) starts like:

#!/bin/bash
# Sector11's list
#  Not in Debian Wally:
#  dlume umplayer ceni kernel-remover
#  Not in Debian Jessie:
#  gawk-doc gimp-help-en midori nvclock umplayer yad ceni kernel-remover
#  xsane - removed - bugs
#
#Recommended packages:
#  vorbis-tools libmusicbrainz-discid-perl libwebservice-musicbrainz-perl wordnet-sense-index libnotify1
#  python-notify claws-mail-i18n cups-browsed dialog fonts-sil-gentium myspell-en-us hunspell-dictionary
#  myspell-dictionary qpdf libqt4-sql-mysql libqt4-sql-odbc libqt4-sql-psql libqt4-sql-sqlite
#  libqt4-sql-sqlite2 libqt4-sql-ibase qttranslations5-l10n libreoffice-sdbc-firebird libreoffice-sdbc-hsqldb
#  xfonts-mathml musescore-soundfont-gm fluid-soundfont-gm freepats tk-tile python-imaging-tk w3m-img

#Things to delete if installed automatically
#	light-locker wamerican-insane
#  flashplugin-nonfree  removed in favour of Bunsen-pepperflash pligin

echo 'apt get is about to install -- THE list! ---'
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends abcde ack-grep aegisub {a really big snip} wmctrl xarchiver xfburn xfe xml2 yad &&

exit 0

Then I have an "aainstall" script:

#!/bin/bash
# Sector11's list
echo ''
echo 'Now to configure your new apps'
echo 'Press ANY key to create vnstat database (eth0)'
read key
sudo vnstat -u -i eth0 &&
echo ''
echo 'Press a key to continue with sensors-detect'
echo 'Answer "default to everything!'
echo 'Except the final - answer "Yes"'
echo ''
read key
sudo sensors-detect
echo ''
echo 'Activating "/etc/init.d/kmod start"'
sudo /etc/init.d/kmod start
echo ''
echo 'Press a key to configure hddtemp'
echo 'Answer: Yes, 0, Yes, OK, OK'
echo ''
read key
sudo dpkg-reconfigure hddtemp
echo ''
read key
echo 'Crystalcursors Number 7'
echo ''
sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme
echo ''
echo 'Done'
echo 'Any key to exit'
read key
exit

So I don't want those programs in the Net-Install part of the script.  big_smile

However we'll know if any of the others I rip out cause an OOPS!  smile

Re: Installing BunsenLabs Helium-dev

EDIT:  Picture or it didn't happen:
2017-07-16-21-46-20_scrot.th.png

It did install a few things on the "no install" list that messed things up.  For example: lightdm, light-locker were a not install item:

 16 Jul 17 @ 21:23:42 ~
   $ list light-locker
Alias for: apt list -a filename
Listing... Done
light-locker/stable,now 1.7.0-3 amd64 [installed,automatic]

 
 16 Jul 17 @ 21:23:56 ~
   $ list lightdm
Alias for: apt list -a filename
Listing... Done
lightdm/stable,now 1.18.3-1 amd64 [installed,automatic]

 
 16 Jul 17 @ 21:24:12 ~
   $ 

One of the bl-{name} scripts has those as a depends I guess, and it messed up my DCHP network interfaces file and no matter what I do, it will not go online.  Network-manager was not installed, but something in one of the bl-scripts must have changed something.

Also I said no to "conky-all" but bl-conky installed it.  And Cv1.10 too sad

Back to the dwawing board ....

Oh this is for HoaS:

setterm -blank 0

worked like a charm ... stayed on the full time.  Thank you.

@DeepDayze
It worked but not quite as expected.

====
OK, one more time.  This time pick and choose what the bl-scripts install.

Comments in pkgs-norecs and pkgs-recs are ignored. (Feel free to add your own when you change something - it won't do any harm.) Both those files are necessary though - what damo meant about being from Hydrogen was that the package lists were inherited from there and needed modifying. When packages were removed I commented them out instead of deleting them, for reference, so later we could see what had been removed just in case it caused problems.

Not to my knowlege. It was included in the Hydrogen isos released last year. Anyway, I'll change it to btrfs-progs in the netinstall install list (pkgs-norecs).

No no ... you misunderstood - it was ripped out of my system ... here on my local machine.

... screaming like a stuck pig it was ....   devil

BTW.  I have a beef with the pkgs-norecs and pkgs-recs lists.

I removed things from the "pkgs-norecs" list that the "pkgs-recs" installed regardless.

lightdm, light-locker are two.

Or these:
modemmanager, network-manager, network-manager-gnome, network-manager-openvpn-gnome, network-manager-pptp-gnome, network-manager-vpnc-gnome

Didn't want them as D9NI setup DHCP connection just fine.  But something overwrote my D9NI /etc/network/interfaces file and fixing that and rebooting did not bring back my network connection.  So something somewhere did a number on me. ... sad

So I decided to do a complete install with the lists as you have them.  That was even worse.  Grey screen with the default fugly OBmenu.  I'm such a noob.

Then I figured what the heck, installed from D9NI - Xfce, then Mate over Xfce and LXDE over Mate - pulseaudio in all of them: FAIL!

And the ONLY way I get it working in BL - qasmixer.  - go figure, I have a crappy machine. But I need this:

It would probably be best if you could open a thread for this in Bug Reports, the netinstall script is designed to be user-alterable.

Please include the full content of pkgs-recs & pkgs-norecs (if you have changed them) and also include the full output of this command from the system *after* the netinstall script has finished it's job:

dpkg --list | grep ^i

You can export this to a text file and retrieve that from a live ISO if you can't connect:

dpkg --list | grep ^i > ~/Documents/packages.list

Well, a bit later in that post I said: Then I figured what the heck, installed from D9NI - Xfce, then Mate over Xfce and LXDE over Mate - pulseaudio in all of them: FAIL!  XFCE went over the failed BL attempt.

Currently I have a D9NI sitting at TTY1 - nothing else.  I'll try something tonight, but I think I'll compare the files installed in the bl-{scripts} with the files in the "pkgs-norecs" that will probably be easier... give me something to do.

Warning: BunsenLabs Helium is at the development stage and must be considered *experimental* in nature so please *do not* use this system for anything important.

Preamble

With the release of Debian 9.0 now upon us, this guide will show how to install a BunsenLabs Helium test system (known as "Helium-dev").

There are two steps to this process:

  • install a Debian stretch base system

  • run the bunsen-netinstall script

For the first step, it is possible to use the Debian stretch netinstall ISO image (with the non-free firmware already included):

https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unof … ch/iso-cd/

If this method is used, be sure to de-select all of the desktop options in the tasksel section, just leave the "standard system utilities" box ticked and un-select all of the other options (unless you want a print, ssh or web server).

Once the system is installed, the bunsen-netinstall script can be run after first boot (from a console login), as described below.

For this guide I will be showing how to install from a running terminal session in BunsenLabs Hydrogen (or any other GNU/Linux environment) as this removes the need for continual rebooting, installation media, reading online instructions from the TTY, and so on.

Installing stretch
{snip}

Applying the netinstall script

First, either log in as the normal user (if booting into a conventional stretch installation) or use this command from the chroot:

su - $username

Since nothing seemed to work for me I'm going to ask a couple of really dumb questions here.  Just to clear up some doubts.  Now I know other have done this guess I'm not as smart.  But.

Near the top I see where it says two steps:

There are two steps to this process:

  • install a Debian stretch base system

  • run the bunsen-netinstall script

So for me 1. is install Stretch from a Net Install  Then it looks like skip down to Run the bunsen-netinstall script for the 2nd step.

so what's all the stuff between:
Installing stretch

and:

Applying the netinstall script

Do I need to do that too?

The first step (installing Debian stretch) can be done in two ways:

  1. Debian stretch ISO image, this is what you have done

  2. `debootstrap` from a live ISO image or pre-installed system

I included the second method because it's the one I use and I wanted some notes for the process and also because it is more flexible than an ISO image and can be used in cases where the conventional installer will not work.

I did actually (attempt to) explain this in the section of text between the bullet points outlining the steps and the Installing stretch header but obviously I was not very clear.

I have a beef with the pkgs-norecs and pkgs-recs lists.
I removed things from the "pkgs-norecs" list that the "pkgs-recs" installed regardless.
lightdm, light-locker are two.

Or these:
modemmanager, network-manager, network-manager-gnome, network-manager-openvpn-gnome, network-manager-pptp-gnome, network-manager-vpnc-gnome

The packages listed in "pkgs-norecs" are installed without recommends, while those in "pkgs-recs" are installed with recommends, so if any of the packages in pkgs-recs recommends a package that was in pkgs-norecs, even if you commented it out from there, it will be installed. (The packages in "pkgs-recs" are all BunsenLabs packages.) That would account for lightdm (rec. by bunsen-configs) but I've no idea where modemmanager and network-manager came from. You could move all the bunsen-* packages from pkgs-recs to pkgs-norecs to get them installed without recommends.

Re: Installing BunsenLabs Helium-dev

AFICS, bunsen-meta-all is the only package that Recommends lots of other stuff, but that isn't in pkg-recs.

Re: Installing BunsenLabs Helium-dev

I totally didn't follow the instructions, but here I am.
I installed Stretch from a netinstall CD with the nonfree firmware and then added the testing repos as in the OP.
Then I installed bunsen-meta-all and let'er rip.

Looks like the GRUB theme didn't make it, but everything else did. Great so far.
