[EN] post installation
« on: 2023/06/18, 09:32:39 »
Good morning,
I've not found any reference on the matter, but after a new installation what are the best actions to do?
I'm refering to a post install howto

Are these the same of Debian or different?

for example:

sudo:

Code: [Select]
/sbin/usermod -aG sudo $USER
Installing build-essential on Debian


Code: [Select]
sudo apt install build-essential dkms linux-headers-$(uname -r)


Install restricted-extras

Code: [Select]
sudo apt install ttf-mscorefonts-installer unrar libavcodec-extra gstreamer1.0-libav gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly gstreamer1.0-vaapi


Microsoft Fonts Compatibility


Code: [Select]
sudo apt install fonts-crosextra-carlito fonts-crosextra-caladea


Enable Snap and FlatPak

Code: [Select]
sudo apt install snapd

restart


Code: [Select]
sudo snap install core


sudo apt install flatpak

sudo apt install gnome-software-plugin-flatpak

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo



samba and nfs are the same procedure of Debian?

Thank a lot since now

For the most part you installed Debian(unstable). If there is something you want/need just install it with apt or Nala. The only real differences are the Siduction scripts and kernel.

And you do not want
Code: [Select]
linux-headers-$(uname -r)
We ship our own kernel including the headers.

  • Smile - it works and was quite simple.
  • Read the upgrade warnings
  • Upgrade your system: Either
    nala upgrade
    or
    apt update && apt full-upgrade
    But always read the messages before confirming with Yes.
  • Install what else you need. But please use apt or nala; synaptic is not a good idea (see manual).
  • Have fun!

In reference to the original question, I just installed the latest release and for some reason my user cannot obtain sudo... Im left not being able to install anything. Was there something I missed during the install?

well. you can change to root using the " su -" command.. Or add your user to the "sudo" group and than a "systemctl soft-reboot" or configure "doas", take a look to the manual.
But first you have to get root with the "su" command.

Thank you hendrickL. It has been a while since Ive been on a pure or close to pure debian. Ive was running some arch distros and have a mint install on another drive and everything is sudo. I guess I didnt realize siduction still uses the old way I actually learned  back in 2000 when I installed my first debian net install and landed in the black window and had to build from there. Im good with su to get root unless there is a more secure recommended way? Ill read up on doas to for replacing sudo. I guess I got so used to sudo, I didnt even think to su to root.
