debootstrap elive?
February 04, 2014 04:54PM
I'm liking elive so far. it's beautiful. it's what I want in a desktop. How do I debootstrap it?

I run all my desktops on something called zfs, and the only good way to install debian derivatives on zfs is to use something called debootstrap. it goes a little like this: debootstrap elive /mnt ; . However, I don't know how to make that particular command work. I figure what's actually needed is something similar to:

debootstrap wheezy /mnt;
chroot /mnt /bin/bash

as this is the method used for other derivative distros such as bodhilinux.

Problem is, I can't find a guide or documentation online to accomplish this currently. The source code is not self documenting enough.

I could always just try enabling the right repositories and installing the right packages, but how much manual configuration would be needed?

Thanks in advance for a prompt and helpful response emosmile

Add elive repositories, upgrade, install elive packages emosmile

But i recommend pretty much to install elive instead (beta installer just released)
