Ive trying to put debian on a eeepc 900 4g ssd is the HDrive 2g ram, after login my@debian comes up and Im stuck, tryed acouple of thing but I dont know.... its not like apple, what Ive been using for ever. I have mint on a sony laptop that works super! I had a problem with it once but I was able to reinstall the OS, suprized myself...%) thought I could use a eeepc900 that was givin to me by a freind with no OS, this is the tinyest laptop! but Im using unetbootin to usb in (term?) that worked?
or seemed to, the login comes up but thats when the my @debian comes up. I ve looked on the web with luck finding Your website

Debian was installed. To something. Probably a usb or sd card if I guess correctly.

Got a link to what Debian? Version? Type of install. I got a feeling language <mine?> is gonna be a barrier in this thread.

I used to show how Linux was installed on these things
back when I had mine. I sold both of mine.
The 900 and 701SD when they would still fetch some decent bucks.

I used to use a wallpaper for quick access to things like

I guess cheat sheets might help you get started also.

You can download .pdf files like I posted above to your ~/Documents folder after you figure out how to get your Debian install going.

Hi.

Is it installed and you get a CLI (Command Line Interface, ie a netinst?) If so check out
Code:
man man
man su
man apt
if the internet is not working can also load a full Debian DVD on the installer USB drive you used then
Code:
su
apt-cdrom add
to get to perhaps (eg:)
Code:
su
apt-get install xfce4

http://www.debianadmin.com/add-cdrom...apt-cdrom.html
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...to-apt-663249/

otherwise add more info here and keep at it, a netinst is a good start to go on such a tiny thing (oh look at
Code:
su
apt-get install aptitude
then [Ctrl] plus T for the menu.

https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/a...s01s01.en.html)

Have fun!
