Debian install - And a side note to Unkmar

From: "K. Elise Walker" 
------------------------------------------------------
So, I'm going to install Debian to make a LAMP server. I'm using  
Debian as a last resort. I like Ubuntu, and tried to install it, but  
there was something wrong with the image??? Now I go to the link to  
download the isos for Debian to make the disc.... and THERE ARE 8????  
Holy..... Is there any easier way to install Debian? I really don't  
want to have to install from 8 different discs. My disc drive is  
acting up too so that makes it even more problematic.

I'm not exactly the sharpest tool on command line, and thought I would  
ask you all first before I go trying to fruitlessly dig for the answer  
myself.

BTW sending a call on the Bat-phone for Lucius. I will have to borrow  
the network cable that's running to your laptop for a quick minute.  
I'll put it back, promise. :)

Thank you for the opportunity to work with you. I look forward to your  
reply.

=============================================================== From: Cameron Kilgore ------------------------------------------------------ It's also fast and painless. Still, I would probably use Ubuntu Server if I needed to get a LAMP server spun up...why would the disc image fail? Is it a hardware issue?

=============================================================== From: Rod-Lists ------------------------------------------------------ just disc one dear. PS ppc ubuntu has been fubared the last few releases. After the attempted install last night tho, I'm pretty sure comshaft was interfering with my net installs involving foreign repositories. With EPB the install went without a hitch. Just getting a kernel error. ----- Original Message ----- From: "K.

I thought we were still on the whole "What is wrong with this image" portion of the install.... We've had so many problems with this one it's unreal. Downloading net install now.

Press "OK" Stand away for a little while.. write down the password for MySQL when it comes up.. When done, reboot or not.. You should have Apache and MySQL and PHP up and running.

=============================================================== From: Rod-Lists ------------------------------------------------------ As I said before target system is a spare G4. Ubuntu PPC has been snakebit since about 9.4. I did an Ubuntu server install and got a kernel error. (Yes I used the right ISO IMAGE) I recommend installing Joomla from a tarball since we can't find a deb or a repo. At least the Debian web server is running.( she did the debian install by herself) However even if we get Ubuntu running on a G4(fat chance) , we still would have to install Joomla from tar ball. I seem to recall having install from tarball once. ----- Original Message ----- From: "K.

=============================================================== From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" ------------------------------------------------------ You may have better luck with Yellow Dog Linux. I used it on a PCI Graphics G4 (aka Yikes!) and had absolutely no problems. I'll be using it again in the future. Why haven't you tried OS X and Fink? ght d a deb or a d s a

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ When did you switch from Debian to Gentoo? ;) Debian is the easy, just install the bare system off a netinstall cd. # apt-get install openssh-server screen apache2 php5-mysql mysql-server postfix :) At least it doesn't have dailies....

=============================================================== From: "K. Elise Walker" ------------------------------------------------------ It's the hard way for me because I have probably used command line 4 times in my entire life. So, someone who has minimal knowledge is setting something like this up from the bottom up. I messed some things up in the install anyway so I'm starting over... yet again. I didn't know to just install the bare system... and didn't realized until 2 in the morning that I had some wrong software packages, etc. I was really tempted to throw the thing through my living room window. :S

=============================================================== From: Cameron Kilgore ------------------------------------------------------ Debian base is a world of pain to install for having come from Ubuntu. I would say since you're halfway through learning how to install Linux from CLI, you should try Arch Linux, but I don't know how robust its PowerPC support is, and if you're ready for a rolling release distribution.

=============================================================== From: Erik Hanson ------------------------------------------------------ You may find that this howto goes above and beyond what you actually need, but you can't beat it for setting up a Debian based LAMP stack, and it'll probably give you a better understanding of what's actually going on with your system as you go. http://howtoforge.com/perfect-server-debian-lenny-ispconfig2 On Fri, Feb 4, 2011 at 10:27 AM, K.

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Laughing: Real Life DOES have experience points. Some you give them to yourself, some you are given by others.... and some you get for just surviving. Translating those points to things useful in Real Life is the trick. Conversion is not easy or understood by most. There is a lot of such experience points in working with Linux... and they CAN be converted. I'm watching someone else learn that providing solutions and service is better than evangelizing the technology. The tools and result is the same, the pay is very different.

=============================================================== From: Kenneth Ratliff ------------------------------------------------------ Pretty darn sure it does, and I do them for the same reason - money and rep.
