Re: orca on debian stretch testing

It's possible to put everything in /etc/network/interfaces although doing so may have adverse security impact. wpa_passphrase can be used to write a password out in hex and that block could be concatenated onto /etc/network/interfaces. That I think is the most security available from /etc/network/interfaces. What additional security is available from /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf I don't yet know.

I just installed Debian testing using the net installation iso for the
week of November 28th, 2016 and the only major issues I found is that if you
press a key espeakup lags around a little behind of when you press the key.
Thanks for testing. This should be better with the next installer version, this
issue has been fixed.

I then went back and reinstalled using the same iso image on another partition
just with the basic tools for a command line installation but it looks like
network-manager is not installed so my question is where can I get
documentation on how to setup my wireless network connection or for how to add
more then one network to the system as just copying the interfaces file from a
working installer to the system did not work?
You can find instructions by searching "debian wireless networking" or similar
on the web? It basically consists of two steps: editing /etc/network/interfaces
to set up the correct interface and editing
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf. It's a bit more effort at first, but
works reliably with or without GUI.

The Debian Wiki has an article on it:


Please let us know whether that works for you. I'm sure that there are more
pages describing the steps differently or better. And don't worry,  as soon as
you have understood things, it really boils down to adding two stanzas.
