Why the NVIDIA graphics driver should be available in repositories

It’s not that big of a deal, but would it really be that big of a problem to deliver a proper .deb package for the driver installation? I had to let the Nvidia installer disable my Nouveau driver, I had to manually stop LightDM and I also had to correct the /usr/bin/gcc link, since Nvidia apparently doesn’t care about my CC environment variable. sudo service lightdm stop sudo rm /usr/bin/gcc sudo ln -s /usr/bin/gcc-4.6 /usr/bin/gcc What’s up with that?

Installing Debian with Mate

Preparing your installation medium First you need to put your Debian image on a USB stick. You can do this by using the dd command; if is the input file, of is the output file. We are going to use the ISO as input and the USB device address as output. dd if=/home/orangensaft/Downloads/debian-wheezy-DI-rc1-amd64-netinst.iso of=/dev/sdb When it’s done you’ll see a new line, ready for input. At that point, you may restart your system and boot from USB. Installing Debian & initial setup I recommend keeping a second USB stick around to conveniently deliver missing firmware to the installer, although this is optional if they aren’t essential network or display drivers.
