This is a collection of files intended to install a close approximation of the BunsenLabs Linux on a basic command-line-only Debian Stretch system. Bug reports are very welcome! Please visit the bunsenlabs forums: http://forums.bunsenlabs.org/ HOW TO USE Download a Debian Stretch "netinst" .iso file from here: https://www.debian.org/CD/netinst/ and use it to install a basic cli system. (See "DEBIAN NETINSTALL HINTS" below.) Boot into your Debian Netinstall Stretch cli system, log in and run these commands, as a normal user: (A fresh copy of this bunsen-netinstall package will be downloaded.) wget https://github.com/bunsenlabs/bunsen-netinstall/archive/helium.tar.gz tar -xpf helium.tar.gz cd bunsen-netinstall-helium ./install The installation process will start. Follow any prompts that appear on the screen. A folder called bunsen-netinstall-logs will be added to your ~/.cache folder. (The file bunsen-netinstall-logs/install.log will contain verbose information about the install process.) This folder may safely be removed if the installation was successful, and no issues arose subsequently. A folder /backup/bunsen-netinstall on your root file system will hold backups of system files replaced during the install. The script itself has been separated off from the files holding specific data about the installation. This is intended to make customization easier. It should not be necessary to edit "install". Even if the script is upgraded in the future, the same config files should still work.

Two points to watch if you want to use this netinstall script afterwards: 1) At the "Set up users and passwords" screen, do NOT enter a password for root. Type nothing and press "continue". Do this again at "Re-enter password to verify". Enter your own name and password as normal. You will then be given 'sudo' permissions, which will be needed in the script. 2) At the "software selection" stage DESELECT EVERYTHING except "standard system utilities". You will have a core system only, on which the netinstall installer will add what is needed. (Some software items will be marked with an asterisk, indicating that they have been preselected. Use the up/down arrows to move, and the spacebar to toggle selection.) The netinstall download and links to documentation can be found here: https://www.debian.org/CD/netinst/
