This document goes hand in hand with the DebianLinuxAccessPoint page. Once your image is created this shows you how to load the image onto a FujitsuStylistic1000. You can download it in two formats:

If you think that you've found a bug in the image please report it on the DebianApImageBugs page, make sure you include enough information for me to duplicate it. -- AdamShand

Using the dd image

  1. Put drive in laptop, it should show up as /dev/hde (if it doesn't you'll need to adjust the rest of the document accordingly).
  2. This took up about 15 miuntes on a 166 MHz Toshiba Notebook

    # bunzip2 -dc ImageFileName.bz2 | dd of=/dev/hde
    666144+0 records in
    666144+0 records out
  3. Put drive in Fujitsu, and boot it.
    • Wow it even does IPv6!
    • Oops, it didn't recognize the DLink DWL-650 cause

      prism2: GetNextTuple: No more items
    • Login as root, no password.
    • Oh yeah, its a CardBus card, and the Fujitsu doesn't do CardBus.

    • Reboot with a ["3Com AirConnect"] AirconnectComments plugged in.

    • Drat, Unsupported card.

    • Reboot with an InTalkNokiaCard card.


Using the tar ball

  1. Put drive in laptop, it should show up as /dev/hde (if it doesn't you'll need to adjust the rest of the document accordingly).
  2. Format the disk (if you don't have cfdisk, normal fdisk will do just fine):

    # cfdisk /dev/hde I set my partition table up like this and it seems to work fairly well. {{{hde1 Boot Primary Linux 299.93

hde2 Primary Linux swap 41.15}}}

  • Format the filesystem (we'll upgrade to EXT3 later):

    # mke2fs /dev/hde1

  • Mount the drive:

    # mount /dev/hde1 /mnt

  • Untar the image onto the drive (note the image is compressed with bzip2 so it will require a recent version of tar and the bunzip2 utility), on my laptop this takes 2 or 3 minutes:

    # tar Ixvf /mnt/debian-ap-image-yyyymmdd.tar.bz2 -C /mnt

  • Chroot into the mount point so that you can

    # chroot /mnt

  • Update the filesystem to support EXT3:

    # tune2fs -j /dev/hde1

  • Modify /mnt/etc/lilo.conf so the top section reflects the current device name of the drive
  • Make the image bootable with lilo (first # exit out of the chroot'ed environment):

    # lilo -r /mnt -C /etc/lilo.conf

  • Boot the drive up in the Stylistic and then install grub (do this on the Stylistic):

    # grub-install
