Okay you have GX series hardware. Apologies however the Debian 6 image will only work on LX series hardware. The hanging portion that you are seeing is likely due to to the software looking for hardware that does not exist. The GX series has /dev/hda for hard drive associations. The LX series has /dev/sda.
I am currently building a GX image for debian 6 but having problems with penmount drivers. Currently going back and forth with them on implementation. I have a few debian 5 images that will work however there was always a missing element. If I remember right blueman bluetooth manager was not in my debian 5 images. There is a puppy image here in the forum that also works well on the GX series 366. For debian and puppy one needs a familiarity with the "dd" tool. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dd_(Unix)
If you feel like beating my to the finish line download yourself a image of debian 6 xfce - lxde. Its on one cd opposed to 12 dvd's. Perform a minimal install and start to build up your image from there. Once you hae a base cli system installed Commands like:
- Code: Select all
sudo aptitude install -R --without-recommends xserver-xorg-video-vesa xfonts-base x11-utils xserver-x11-utils xterm xinit xauth
Will bring in a minimal functioning xorg from the cd used to install. From there install xfce or lxde using the same command syntax. I found that I didnt have the room to do an apt-get update as it brings in 40 - 50 megs of crap that one cannot get rid of. Somewhere on this forum someone had a way around this but I cant seem to find the post.
That and I just got an eviction notice this morning so I would offer to help out more on this however I need to get packing and relocating.
