Re: debian-installer issues with no wireless network connection after a text based Jessie installation

Hi, I used the S option to get speech during the installation then enabled the network console using the loading menu options and then entered in my password so had speech the entire installation and was mainly testing out the network console. Are you saying even if I do that and have speech if I install using the network console speech will not be turned on after the installation even if it is used to start the network console?

Windows 10 was probably why you didn't get speech post-install. Starting debian with the s boot parameter turns on speech that debian produces for the installation then by default keeps speech turned on post-install. Use of a console with windows 10 enabled you to get the text over the console so I suspect you failed to enable debian speech during installation. I hope this solves one of your problems.

Hi, The name of the iso I was using is firmware-8.0.0-amd64-netinst.iso

and it is in the archive for the debian-installer. I ran the installation using this image as my network cards both wired and wireless require firmware and I also ran the installation on low priority and choose to install everything like non-free as well as backports. For the main tasks for this text based installation I selected just the standard system as I want this system to be small. Everything installed just fine and I was connected to the installation over the network as I wanted to test out the network console using my windows 10 system and was able to follow all prompts but then once the Debian system rebooted no internet settings were on the system in the /etc/network/interfaces or any other wifi packages that were installed such as wpa_supplicant. My question is why does the installer not copy over the wireless networking settings from the installer to the target system when doing a text only install with speech? Nick Gawronski

Hi, I am using the net installer of Jessie version 8.0.0 that includes the firmware
Could you give us the full name of the Jessie ISO?
as I am totally blind and found that the latest installer once it was installed I had no software speech after installing the system.
It depends on how you install your system. If you install you system in braille or in "normal" way it's the normal effect.
I was installing Debian Jessie on my laptop with just a text based system mainly for a rescue system for when X windows is down and for times when I don't wish to use X windows. I found that during the installation I was able to connect to the internet and successfully install the system but once the system was rebooted I had no internet access over any network method.
As I know, It seems there is no link with accessibility in this case.
What would it take for the debian installation to copy the network settings from the installer to the target system as it makes no sence why networking would be setup and working during a text based installation but not in the target system? What file should I edit to add my wireless network as well as my wired network using DHCP so they both will work when my text based system boots? Nick Gawronski
The tips I use is to install a new driver for your Debian system.
For doing something like that you need to follow some steps :
1) Find the model of your card and the related firmware package in Debian, if it's a Intel Wireless card it's the package firmware-iwlwifi <https://packages.debian.org/fr/jessie/firmware-iwlwifi> 2) Add the backports repo in your environment as explained in this page : http://backports.debian.org/Instructions/ 3) Install the new package with a command like that : "apt-get install -t jessie-backports FIRMWARE_NAME"
