Finding image is fine. downloading it is fine. pretty much anything else any body else says is fine but my USB STICK DOES NOT GET DETECTED WHEN USING ANY PROGRAM (unetbootin)(universal installer)(pandora pendrive thingy)
Ok you can find image

As i said it works on windows it lists all virtual drives on laptop and usb stick that usually becomes listed as c: but on puppy slacko it does nothing.
If usb isn't recognized by puppy, then your device isn't automatically mounted.
Are you running a live system on usb & trying to install to it?

Quote:
As i said it's matter luck and when i do have debian set up for install mode it's because Windows.
If you are more familiar with installing on your usb from windows then I would suggest doing it that way, as you are familiar with the system that you are using.

Im surprised no body in here's saying: "it's puppy slacko that's problem" rather making me walk in circles since it's really not cool :'(''
It's not slack/puppy problem it is that you are less familiar with the system than you are with windows.
If you don't have usb-utils usb-mount or permissions in place then you will not get the results that you are looking for.

If your problem is that puppy isn't seeing the USB drive what have you done to look for it?
What does
Code:
fdisk -l
display when the USB drive you want to use is plugged in?
Well turns out i can mount iso file. it's easy as hell but finicky since file sways to good or bad mount, is it just me or are files over at debian corrupt. lol joking.

Used md5sum debian-live-6.0.4-i386-gnome-desktop.iso

Once i re-down loaded iso file. it gave me A* search algorithm ^{{A ^[[B ^[[C ^[[D "I chose A"

then mounted: dd if=debian-live-6.0.4-i386-gnome-desktop.iso of=/dev/sdc1 yes i know your all thinking wtf, {c}

But testing a variety usb sticks since current sandisk cruzer used unetbootin as installer last nite and results were bad corrupt again, however files i replaced on that usb stick.

Over on lexar usb stick im doing a manual burn,results looking good but yet to know if it's gonna boot on reboot or result in corrupt file.

Im sorry but i have zero chance with installer program. if i was installing within windows or unbantu or even debian then chances installing either on any application device increases in theory.

But no matter what i love puppy slacko, who doesn't, running it from ram on disk makes you feels like undetectable lol :P


P.s why is it when i iused install program the files sit exactly same as you would when doing it manually, it looks identical but when i did it manually it didn't boot but from how installer program arranged all files it came up identical it's just one lists as corrupt while other lists no boot file when there is?. go figure

Once all files are installed on usb stick it looks like this:

CSS: DEBIAN: DISTROS: DOC: INSTALL: ISOLINUX: LIVE: PICS: POOL: WIN32-LOADER: AUTORUN.INF: MDSSUM.TXT: README.HTML: README.MORRORS.HTML: README.MIRRORS.TXT: README.SOURCE: README.TXT:SETUP.EXE: SETUP-STANDALONE.EXE: WIN32-LOADER.INI

Well compared to 3 dyas ago i got more down then before so im close but noq get missing error or corrupt file on install if doing it manuallyjust no install menu.

Can some one recommend me good iso file with clean download tired of these failed attempts.

I think it's something not too complicated. Are you trying to use the usb drive to install debian on so you can use debian with only the usb stick in the computer? Or are you trying to create a usb drive to install debian with?

We are all trying to help but it is hard to understand what you are actually trying to do.
I installed it, yay super happy. gosh all the problem was.... was instead /dev/sdc1 it was just sdc, it constantly made so many errors.

Yay i did it manually with out stupid program. aww wish i could give every one hug lol. but oh well thanks for help, i may have been in strangest terms but i know you all ment well thanks.

Signing out the penguin trainer.

How do you install vuze azureus on debian.

One thing i never understood about linux is how it communicates as windows exe alternative, so can some one point me in right direction.

In file manager on debian how do i access x windows, oh i think it's already installed.

But why does debian feel like apple computer lol.

Is fuse debian program as windows is exe?

There are packages in the repositories for Vuze and Azureus which you should be able to install using Synaptic or from the command line by typing:
Code:
apt-get install vuze
or
Code:
apt-get install azureus
I think you will be asked for the DVD containing the package, but I've not installed from DVD so I can't tell you how this will look.

Debian -- Package Search Results -- vuze - http://packages.debian.org/search?su...&keywords=vuze


apt-cache search vuze

apt-get install vuze

You should try using deluge or ktorrent, both are much nicer and lighter than vuze.


If you installed Synaptic open it and search for torrent, lots of choices.

YaY Feels so good not having install debian agian. super happy.

oH so that's how you install files on linux. you type it in and it searches lol. gosh now i forgot what's command for super user so i can type in my password

Oooh and how do you change theme on login menu splash, i tried seems more challenging.

And last what's best programming editor on linux. im use to notepad+ on windows simply because all my files there

Sorry for all questions, if i could give you prize i would.

P,s
I have never seen so many packages-manager on debian like that before. some wouldn't even exist on windows let alone be legit but it goes to show linux is like left hand while windows is right hand complimenting each other but trying real hard not to work with each other.

you can even install aptitude and use that instead of apt-get the command aptitude can replace the command and do even more, if you just run aptitude you can then search in a basic gui for packages using the / key.

Apt (aptitude, apt-get and more) uses the source repositories defined in /etc/apt/sources.list if you install software using apt you can always update the package information so you have the newest applications and most recent versions in the repositories you use.
It is wise to update this info and update the software on your installation. To do this you first update the data(as root):
Code:
apt-get update
and then you upgrade everything on there:
Code:
apt-get upgrade
If you want something that is not in these repositories you can add a repository that has the software or you can install a .deb(if you have the right version for your os and architecture) installing a .deb file works like: (again as root)
Code:
dpkg -i your_application.deb

Ok,you can find image, but, do you have usb-utils, usb-mount & permission to mount an external hard drive or devices? Have you made unetbootin executeable?
Also if you can get usb working thru windows which you are familiar with you probably should do that as you are familiar with it & later on down the line experiment with getting unetbootin working thru linux.
Good luck.

I suggest you READ the various manuals/doc Debian has available. Including the newly released Debian Administration Handbook.

And learn how to use vim in a terminal, and either cream or gedit in GUI.


Suggested docs you can install:
apt-dpkg-ref - APT, Dpkg Quick Reference sheet
aptitude-doc-en - English manual for aptitude, a terminal-based package manager
apt-doc - documentation for APT
debian-reference-en - Debian system administration guide, English original
debian-handbook - reference book for Debian users and system administrators
debian-refcard - printable reference card for the Debian system
newbiedoc - Debian documentation FOR newbies BY newbies

For more info take a look at:
