Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

There is now an experimental repository holding BunsenLabs packages migrated from Helium with the minimum of changes needed to install and run on Debian Buster. This is not yet a BunsenLabs Lithium system, but just a base on which development can move forward.

If you would like to try it, make a basic Debian Buster CLI install from eg the "netinst" iso here:

amd64
https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/bust … d64/iso-cd
or, with non-free firmware:
https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unof … d64/iso-cd

i386
https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/bust … 386/iso-cd
or, with non-free firmware:
https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unof … 386/iso-cd

Don't set a password for 'root' in the user setup phase (you'll have sudo rights) and at the final package selection phase, choose only "standard system utilities".

Then add this line to your apt sources:

deb https://kelaino.bunsenlabs.org/~johnraff/debian lithium main

Also make sure you add 'contrib' and 'non-free' to all the existing debian lines, something like:

deb https://deb.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free

...etc

Now you can get a rough Helium/Lithium clone by:

wget https://kelaino.bunsenlabs.org/~johnraff/helium-dev.asc
sudo cp helium-dev.asc /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends bunsen-meta-all

It basically looks like Helium at the moment, but that will change in time.

-----------------------------------
Some necessary post-install tweaks, courtesy of hhh:

network

Since iwconfig sets up the internet connection during the installation, editing of /etc/network/interfaces is necessary after the BL desktop is installed to allow Network Manager to handle connections.

Comment out anything except for the first eight lines as so...

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
#allow-hotplug enp9s0
#iface enp9s0 inet dhcp

wireless

Since b43 drivers for Broadcom WiFi are not available in buster, you can download the packages from sid and install them with dpkg -i:

https://packages.debian.org/sid/all/fir … r/download
and
amd64: https://packages.debian.org/sid/amd64/b … r/download
i386: https://packages.debian.org/sid/i386/b4 … r/download

volume icon

pnmixer has a GUI update that hasn't been configured yet in our repo.
Fix the panel volume icon via right-click>Preferences>View>Icon Theme, select Use System Theme and click Apply.

-----------------------------------

Please report any bugs you find in the discussion thread if they are relatively simple, or in a new dedicated thread in that forum.
Thanks!

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

Problem:
Unless you use the advanced installer & specify them or intervene manually contrib and non-free don't get set up in sources
This renders bunsen-meta-all uninstallable owing to uninstallable depends.
 
Aside: Does this mean bunsen-meta-all should live under contrib itself? Since it has depends on non-free?

Worth mentioning:
Don't set a password on the root account.

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

@johnraff, great job, thanks! I'll carve out some time time ASAP to set it up here, hopefully tonight.

-edit- Alpha 5 of the Debian Installer was released a few days ago, I'll use that non-free netinstall image. Note that the b43 Broadcom drivers are not included in these ISOs.

amd64

https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unof … 64/iso-cd/

i386

https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unof … 86/iso-cd/

-edit- I posted the torrent links but they're not available yet. ISO links now posted, and I'm downloading one!

Installs OK in a qemu VM, with the above proviso.

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

Yay  big_smile Thanks for links and info guys, will try to set something up asap. smile

Edit; asap a little bit later. Installation in vbox on W10 host were very smooth. If all goes well I will be able to do an install to hd soon, possibly already next week.  Will of course report  back, if or when things get weird. big_smile

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

@B_B & @hhh thanks - OP has been updated with your improvements.

I have split off B_B's second post, and my reply, to hhh's thread in development. Please post feedback not directly related to the OP (ie installation instructions) there. Thanks!

Good news - firmware-b43-installer and firmware-b43legacy-installer are back in the Buster repos, so no hacking needed. smile

The latest bunsen-meta-all in Lithium-dev will bring them in.
