- Subject: Using debootstrap
My goal is a very minimalist install to a flash drive. It will NOT have GRUB - GRUB on this machine is on a dedicated partition for convenience in some of my experiments.
From reading several references I believe my command should be:debootstrap --arch=i386 --include=apt-get --variant=minbase --no-check-gpg --print-debs --keep-debootstrap-dir stable /media/richard/rco /media/cdrom0/????
I have two questions: 1. What should replace "????" as I'll be using DVD1 of Debian 9.1.0 as my "repository"? 2. As I expect the console display may exceed the scroll back limits, I wish to pipe the console display for later reference without impeding answering any prompts I get. I've seen a description for doing that, but I can't remember it. Pointers?
