Basic install

Category : MiniITX ยท by May 24th, 2008

Having got the board up and running I had a few problems with the Debian net install. After the first splash screen appeared the installer must have been out of the range of the monitor as all I got was a messy splodge on the screen. Four episodes of House and a meal later I checked the installer options and found typing “installgui” instead of just hitting enter should bring up a fancier GUI than the default one. Worked fine!

Once installed I wanted to take the machine off some of it’s life support so I installed ssh, powered down, removed it’s monitor and the CD-ROM and powered back up.

I’m now configuring the new server from the sofa. The plan is to install Samba, SVN, TorrentFlux and anything else I spot that’s fancy.
