Installing DEBIAN Linux on VMware Player

13 May 2023 5 minutes Author: Lady Liberty

Many people now know about an operating system like Debian?

It has been known for a long time and in 20 years has come a long way. Based on this fruitful system, global platforms have been created that are now needed everywhere. Debian is a system that combines the latest technologies with maximum efficiency. It is currently one of the most trusted and sophisticated Linux distributions, with the best package management system, large-scale community, high quality standard and responsible attitude to package testing. This is a free, high-quality Unix-compatible operating system with a full set of programs. Sometimes you may think that installing Debian is quite confusing and complicated. This is due to the fact that this system is for trained users, for those who like to learn everything new and interesting, who are not afraid of difficulties at first.

The most important thing is the correct installation. In this case, Debian allows you to create a system for yourself, rather than adapt to it yourself. Initially, it can be installed in the minimum configuration and at any convenient time to increase as needed. Thus, the user chooses the degree of freedom that suits him. Radical Open Source fans may not like it, but the interests of the majority are more important in this case. Debian is a powerful community-driven distribution. There is no company that manages the creation of Debian, maintains its infrastructure or manages the project. If you trust this agreement to keep the project free or consistent with your values, this may be the only reason to stick to Debian. Debian is not based on any other Linux distribution. This means that the software available in the Debian repositories was packaged specifically for Debian.

8. Network settings. In our case, the computer is connected to the network by twisted pair directly. Further installation when connected via Wi-Fi or in the absence of a network may be slightly different. (In the case of Wi-Fi, it will ask you to connect, and if you don’t have a network, then why do we need Linux at all?;) But there is a small chance that your network device will have no drivers and will have to install them manually. With a very small probability on your network device drivers for Linux will be completely absent)
