List, good afternoon,
Does anyone know whether there is a Debian-Installer boot parameter
that enables a specific, static, IP to be set for use during the
I've checked the Installer guide, s 5.3 boot parameters , where a
parameter to disable DHCP autoconfig is described but I'd like to be
able to set a specific IP as well.
(The reason for wanting this, if possible, is that I will have to
install onto a bare motherboard and disks, without screen or keyboard,
and I'd like to control this install over SSH (if the installer would
also start it) from another machine. I have seen that this can be
arranged using a pre-seeding file [2, 3] - which I found a bit
complicated - but I am hoping there may be a simpler way for my case.
... Perhaps not, albeit.)
Is there a definitive list of all the installer's boot parameters and
values, anywhere? Or are the parameters literally those described in
s 5.3 of the installer guide?
Grateful for any info,
( and http://www.debian.org/releases/jessie/example-preseed.txt )
