PostPosted: Thu 07 Nov 2019, 16:33    Post subject:  The Debian Buster Starter Kit (64bit)  

This is the next generation of the Stretch-Live Starter Kit from here. Get the Buster ISO here.
0c297ab7559feed7ea3e16d3a046ce13  DebLive_Buster-amd64-60.iso

Install it as usual with the stretch-live-frugal-install tool.

Most of the Stretch content extends directly to Buster, with a few modifications.

1. The links on the Stretch page point to various Stretch-specific packages. Most of these are in Fred's Buster repo via apt-get.

2. The following built-in apps in the Buster ISO should be updated immediately:
apt-get update
apt-get install touchpad peasyclock sound-card-selector
#or use: apt upgrade

3a. Some of your squashfs modules may need to be rebuilt for Buster. For example, libavcodec57 is now libavcodec58.
3b. Firefox needs libavcodec58 for some streaming content.

4. If you have used repo2sfs to make browser packages like Chromium, they need rebuilding. I have posted new "guest-setup" scripts and instructions. In particular, Chromium now requires the Extra package: chromium-sandbox

5. Some locally developed packages like hplip-print-scan and evince need patches. Open a terminal and run:
cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
ln -sf libssl.so.1.1 libssl.so.1.0.0
ln -sf libcrypto.so.1.1 libcrypto.so.1.0.0

6. Mesa accelerated graphics are already in the ISO. You just need to run: apt-get install mesa-utils

7. Buster and Stretch are both currently using the kernel 4.19.0-6-amd64. The combo package of WiFi drivers posted for Stretch should also work in Buster.

8. Some bleeding-edge computers (emmc drives?) won't boot with Buster. This may be fixable by replacing the Porteus boot file initrd1.xz. Ask for help. Or use the Live-boot procedure in the latest stretch-live-frugal-installer.
