Oh so the BL  netinstall script is indeed ready to roll for those who need to go the netinstall route?

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium 32 bit Release Candidate iso available

As @hhh says.
The netinstall script might be working fine already, but once the official Lithium iso is out I plan to go back and give it a checkover. If you hit any glitches in the meantime, bug reports will be welcome!

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium 32 bit Release Candidate iso available

Thank you all. Netinstall script looks promising!
For multi-arch experience I will probably report in the other thread mentioned by johnraff.
Cheers.

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium 32 bit Release Candidate iso available

OK so the script on github just needs a few tweaks... testing for stretch

# check debian version FIXME Is /etc/debian_version the best way? Use lsb_release -cs ?
grep -q '\(stretch\|\(^\|[^a-zA-Z0-9.]\)9\($\|[^a-zA-Z0-9]\)\)' /etc/debian_version && msg "Debian version: OK"|| { warnlog "/etc/debian_version reads: $(cat /etc/debian_version)"
    confirm "You do not appear to have Debian Stretch installed.
(...) }

And then the sources list also refers to helium (bunsen-netinstall/sysfiles1/etc/apt/sources.list.d/bunsen.list)

deb https://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian helium main
#deb-src https://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian helium main

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium 32 bit Release Candidate iso available

^Yes indeed! Thank you for this.
Clearly the Lithium netinstall script is not yet ready for use.

All I've updated so far on the "lithium" branch is the package lists.

Sorry, this is going to need a week or two probably - I'm still tied up with getting the CD iso down to 700MB at the moment.  hmm

Good catch. I didn't get to test the alpha lithium netinstall script yet.

^ & ^^^ It might not take too long to fix it up, so I'll have a look later this week.

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium 32 bit Release Candidate iso available

Hi,

If I were to install the rc version, would I need to reinstall when the final release comes out?  Or can i just upgrade via apt?  Sorry if it is a dumb question.

Thanks

Martyn

You can upgrade to the final release by simply changing your apt sources and then upgrading.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the latest RC ISOs (both 64 and 32 bit) use our normal BL repo, so you don't have to do anything except continue to do regular updates via 'sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade', or via Synaptic Package Manager.

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium 32 bit Release Candidate iso available

Hi,
I ran into an issue when installing from a bootable USB drive - it kept asking to load drivers from the cd-rom? It is an old Hp elitebook 6930p.

I had to give up in the end. Any ideas?

Thank you
Martyn

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium 32 bit Release Candidate iso available

I'm guessing WiFi drivers. Can you remember the message the installer gave you?

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium 32 bit Release Candidate iso available

It is at the step - detect and mount CD-rom:

It says no cd rom drive detected and asks to load drivers from removable media

It then says there was a problem reading data from the removable media?  Maybe I will try another usb drive?

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium 32 bit Release Candidate iso available

Yes, installed and up and running.
First impressions are very good, I'm using a 10 Yr old laptop and it runs really well (ssd drive helps). I have used helium for a while and lithium feels slick in comparison.
One problem so far is putting the laptop into suspend - bringing it back up leads to a frozen system. Not sure why? Any ideas?
Generally happy though, well done bunsenlabs.

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium 32 bit Release Candidate iso available

Also, I just realised my laptop is 64bit. Would I be better off installing the 64bit version, I only have 4GB of Ram but I guess it would give me more software choice as I notice a few programs now only come packaged as 64bit.
