so lets begin with the installation
Recently i have upgraded my internet connection from 64Kbps to huge 256Kbps (although it doesn’t sounds too much but guess what for a person working on 64Kbps for 2yrs this is a 400% increment. )
with this change in my side i thought ok lets download the net-install disk and start the magic….
The start was a surprise for me with option selection menu with option for GUI installation..
but the surprise went of the hook when my motherboard(intel 865 chipset ) onboard Graphics was not auto detected and fail back text installer was started
but anyways i can live up with CLI interface too..
so i moved ahead and a simple installation for debian took less then 20 minutes to fiish..
now i can say that besides the minor glitch in hardware detection it was a breeze..
Note : i am not covering much on installation as that is not my prime concern …
Now as the installation got over logged in to the system and went to aptitude for some softwares
Here i would like to point out the best thing i like about aptitude or any package manager in debian TASK’s
simple links to get the a perticular setup done
So i head to aptitude ans task panel a quick “+” over desktop, Laptop, Gnome, Localization Hindi) and Webserver.
two taps on “g” and i am ready to go for a good night sleep in the mean time all the packages will be downloaded and installed automatically……. (size of over 972MB)
