Lightbulb How to complete remaining "debian-7.1.0-amd64-i386-netinst" ?


Hey guy's hope you're doing well,

I'm happy to have "Debian-7.1.0-amd64-i386-netinst.iso"
i burned & boot from it, Debian setup started everything was fine until "bad mirror archive" error occurred

i don't know what's wrong with my DSL, i skipped using mirror and installed base system with standard utility files, and booted to windows to checkout connection i found DSL connection working but while installing Debian its not working!! why?

what i want is !!!
1) Using base system commands
- configuring & bringing up my DSL connection.
- installing all remaining files from mirror.

any help would be great

Were you able to get network connected, or did it say load firmware?
On bootup try using Advanced Options>>Expert Install.

Firmware isn't on netinstall iso
You can download & put on cd/usb or get install media with it included.
https://wiki.debian.org/Firmware
What network card do you have. Is it ethernet or wireless?

Are you using cd or usb?
It is probably going to be simpler to use netinstall wit firmware included

Edit:

actually you can get some usefull info off the installer

switch to a console ( Ctl+F2 ) and type
Code:
lspci -nnk
as an example here is mine
Code:
03:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [10ec:8168] (rev 01)
	Subsystem: ABIT Computer Corp. Device [147b:240b]
	Kernel driver in use: r8169
the bit in green will probably do, but the rest would be nice

get back to the installer with Ctrl+F1

You have to setup the mirrors for apt. Heres the content of mine. Put this into /etc/apt/sources.list
Code:
deb http://ftp.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/ftp/pub/Linux/debian/ wheezy main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/ftp/pub/Linux/debian/ wheezy main non-free contrib

deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free

# wheezy-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/ftp/pub/Linux/debian/ wheezy-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/ftp/pub/Linux/debian/ wheezy-updates main contrib non-free
After putting this into the file you need to run
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
and after this is done run tasksel. This will help greatly in shaping up your system.

Nother thing how do you connect to the internet? Do you have computer->dsl-modem or computer->router->dsl-modem?
Does the router provide dhcp? I'm just trying to find out if you would need to setup dsl connection during install or while running debian.

Does the router provide dhcp? I'm just trying to find out if you would need to setup dsl connection during install or while running debian.
it's computer->router->dsl-modem, yes it takes dhcp automatically, everything is set to automatic mode including IP, i read on debian website about setting up mirror for apt but didn't understood it well,

i'm now running basic debian, and refering to
http://www.debian.org/mirror/ftpmirror#whether
above given link to setup mirror.
you can also describe your method to do the same.

and if it will not work then I'll go to
http://debian.cse.msu.edu/debian-cd/...amd64/iso-dvd/
for downloading full DVD's
wish me good luck eddy.i'll get back to you soon
thanks for great help buddy.

Upsi forgot to tell you where the list of mirrors have to go. They have to go into /etc/apt/sources.list. So login into your shell and do
Code:
editor /etc/apt/sources.list
This should fire up the editor and you are able to edit the file. Save and then go with the apt-get update; apt-get upgrade process.

The link you provided with ftpmirror is not what you want. Really is for having all packages on a local computer which can be used by other computers. And is not needed and not recommended for normal usage of debian.

Before downloading another iso I would first try to get your box connect to the network. Somethings to try out:
Code:
ip link set up dev eth0
ip addr
dhclient
ip addr
