Re: devuan fresh installation on HP laptop fails to load graphical desktop

Assuming this is your wired interface:

dhclient enx00243218dfaa

Ok, the problem is in /etc/network/interfaces. Replace eth0 with enx00243218dfaa or do something to change that long name. Is that a usb ethernet dongle? You shouldn't see interface names like that for internal interfaces.

nomorelogic:  I thought the command was

  # apt-get update

on devuan/debian.

Re: devuan fresh installation on HP laptop fails to load graphical desktop

well... this response is from devuan chimaera with xfce installed big_smile

# uname -a
Linux refracta 5.10.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.19-1 (2021-03-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux

thanks to command dhclient I was able to connect to network
and yes, I don't have a wired interface on board but I need a usb/thunderbolt to connect as wired

All update done as:

#apt update
#apt upgrade
#tasksel

@jacksprat
I don't know the difference between apt and apt-get, looking around I found that "apt is better way in devuan/debian shell".
Do I'm wrong?



I can see this is a pre-beta, some fixes are needed but I think I can use this installation to experiment.

Just to let you know:

This is content of file interfaces:

cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

If I can help to test something you can ask.

after reboot and log in xfce, to connect to network, dhclient was needed again
now I can see only wired interface but I've wifi too.
I hope I can uses wifi in future.

Thanks again to you guys.

That interface name is derived from the MAC address and is used when the firmware doesn't provide onboard or hotplug index numbers or the physical location of the device connector is unknown. This is most common for USB devices but it can also happen with internal cards.

The apt command offers a more "user-friendly" interface for APT and is currently recommended over apt-get for interactive use but not for scripting (because the command interface isn't stable yet).

Edit /etc/network/interfaces to configure the device:

auto enx34298f882acf
iface enx34298f882acf inet dhcp
