--packages-list debian-science problems
After creating the .img and dd'ing to a thumb drive, I was surprised to
find that debian-science booted to the command line. When I typed
xmaxima, I got an error message. When I typed R, I got the R prompt, but
when I then tried the command "demo(graphics)", it failed. (I've used
the online CGI builder successfully with both xmaxima and R in
combination with the LXDE package list).
I tried dd if=/dev/sda | md5sum to see if the thumb drive matched the
.img. It did not match, but then when I tried the same thing with a
thumb drive that was known to work correctly, that did not match either.
I suppose this trick, which can be used to match a DVD with its .iso,
does not work with flash drives and .img.
Is anyone actually using the debian-science configuration?
