Re: Installing Debain on My AMD64
I've just seen this thread, in my opinion, what's the point of a
'powerful' 64 bit machine and running it as a 32 bit. I read somewhere
(forget where) installing Debian could be done by a monkey now. Really,
get hold of the installer and choose all the default options. The
will explain everything. There is installers at
the mini.iso will download quickly. Create a bootable cd. Any windows
cdr software will do this, or you can use cdrecord:
'cdrecord -scanbus' gives the cd device. The command to generate is
'cdrecord -v speed=4 dev=0,0,0 image.iso'
where image.iso is your mini.iso image and dev=0,0,0 is your device.
When installed you need to install Xwindows
apt-get install xserver-xfree86
apt-get install xbase-clients
you may need to install the fonts
pt-get install xfonts-base
apt-get install xfonts-75dpi
Remember, you'll have to apt-get all your software. Hope this is useful
and not too much info.
