    What is the correct way to replace inittab using systemd?

    I downloaded the standard live system that includes nonfree stuff. It logged me in as "user" with a uid of 1000 so I can't do anything because I'm not root. What is the default root password for this installation disc? I tried to use su, but it didn't work. This one barely fit on my tablet...

    32gb / root is not enough?

    You can add a second storage device and use a mount point. You can even create a file system in a file and mount it.

    32gb / root is not enough?

    The Debian web site says 10 GB should be enough to install Debian. That does not include all the other stuff you want to install on your other partitions.

    What is the correct way to replace inittab using systemd?

    To answer the other question, sudo sets the euid of the process to zero while leaving the rest alone. This makes it possible to detect the use of sudo.

    I prefer to use root for administrative tasks and another user account for other stuff.

    What is the correct way to replace inittab using systemd?

    I can't install anything else yet because I can't get the network to work. There's really nothing wrong with allowing root to log in or using root to install a system. I'm the only user and no one else has physical access to the console. I haven't set up user directories yet. I need to get...

    What is the correct way to replace inittab using systemd?

    I don't have a USB thumb drive. I do plan on buying one or two of them. dpkg did put the required firmware file in /lib/firmware/ which is actually /usr/lib/firmware/ . I rebooted the system, but the problem persists.

    Will an external drive work with SCSI?

    It looks like that new external SSD is going to work then. Hopefully it will work much better than this Western Digital hard drive. The laptop also appears to have an IDE system in it as well. I recently found that. It seems the DVD writer may be an IDE drive. Strange that it uses both types.

    What is the correct way to replace inittab using systemd?

    After fighting for each and every step I finally got the wifi firmware package installed. There went another blank disc. I still can't use the wifi. # ifup -v --force wlp3s0 ifup: configuring interface wlp3s0=wlp3s0 (inet) /bin/run-parts --exit-on-error --verbose /etc/network/if-pre-up.d...

    What is the correct way to replace inittab using systemd?

    Is there anything else I might need that I can add to the next DVD that I write? I have a limited number of discs available.

    What is the correct way to replace inittab using systemd?

    I had to have a friend download the netinst CD to his phone along with a web server app so I could get it from there. The browser in Windows Vista wouldn't let me go to debian.org saying it was either down or didn't exist. Perhaps Microsoft doesn't want people switching to Linux. I will have...

    What is the correct way to replace inittab using systemd?

    The sources.list file is kind of a moot point at the moment since the computer cannot connect to a network.

    What is the correct way to replace inittab using systemd?

    ifup is demanding access to a firmware package named iwlwifi-3945-2.ucode before it can turn on the built-in wifi adapter. The problem is, it cannot be connected to any kind of network without it and it can't be installed without a network connection thus making the installation process...

    What is the correct way to replace inittab using systemd?

    I am using the current version of Debian Linux. I installed with the netinst CD. I still can't get the network working so I can't finish the installation process. It looks like /etc/inittab is being phased out of Linux and is being replaced with systemd. What is the correct way to set all of...
