Important failure installation of ASCII using standard Deboostrap.

Hello,

I have installed many times DEVUAN with the following command:

 /usr/sbin/debootstrap --no-check-gpg --include=wpasupplicant    --arch i386 jessie  /target http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged/

It is so far impossible to install ASCII with the same method, why? It is not working, shall it work?

 /usr/sbin/debootstrap --no-check-gpg --include=wpasupplicant  --arch i386 ascii  /target http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged/

Debootstrap for Debian works, so it shall too for Devuan?


 /usr/sbin/debootstrap --no-check-gpg --include=wpasupplicant  --arch i386 ascii  /target http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged/

gives:

Re: Important failure installation of ASCII using standard Deboostrap.

Error message says "possibly" but there's no doubt about it. You need to exclude rsyslog and include either syslog-ng or busybox-syslogd. When rsyslog for ascii is ready, you can switch back to it. It's also possible to add rsyslog from jessie-backports after the install. I know that works, but I don't know if there are any problems with it. (Tested minimally by me, once.)

You might need to exclude alsa-base, too. There is no such package in ascii.

here it works on JESSIE !!

Here it does NOT work on ASCII

I have nothing to do. I have to mention it to the development team so that they can fix this bug as soon as possible, because no one will be capable to install devuan ascii.

Re: Important failure installation of ASCII using standard Deboostrap.

ok, but ifconfig and netwctl are missing, so I used:

 ip link 

and then made sure to have :

# The loopback network interface
auto lo wlp1s0
iface lo inet loopback
iface wlp1s0 inet dhcp
wpa-conf /etc/network/wifi-home.conf

then ifup wlp1s0

Re: Important failure installation of ASCII using standard Deboostrap.

ifconfig is in the net-tools package

If you want wlan0 and eth0 instead of what you have for interface names, add 'net.ifnames=0' to the linux line of your boot menu.

wlp1s0, wlp2s0, wlan1, and sometimes wlan0,... .very unpredictable depending on the machine...

boot menu, i.e. visible after at /proc/cmdline ?

Yes. To do it once, press the e key at the boot menu and add it to the linux line.
To make it permanent, add it to the KERNEL_DEFAULT line in /etc/default/grub (where it has "quiet") and then run update-grub.

Re: Important failure installation of ASCII using standard Deboostrap.

grub automatic changes might be dangerous. Long long time I never use it wink
update-grub brrrr
I do not use grub, but I make a boot loader with simple dd and fdisk... you probably never often did that way. It s just faster and more reliable.

ls /devuan-kernel/
boot  modules  network   boatloader.img

I see to past it with:
net.ifnames=0

then, we talk directly to Linus (the kernel).... wink
