Recommended debootsrap tutorials




I was introduced to Linux when Squeeze had become "stable".
I thought default installs were not only too obese but didn't have some of my desired packages. That led to educational (& reasonably fruitful) experiments with preseeding.

As some of my interest was focused on finding out just how small a useful Debian system could be, I was pointed towards debootstrap. I didn't have needed background at that time. I've continued to pursue the literature sporadically.

One of the problems was everything seemed to be focused on a foreign architecture &/or release &/or being run on a non-Debian machine.

My interest has been rekindled. I wish to understand debootstrap. To that end I do a minimalist bootable Debian installation.

Summary:
Target will be another partition on my current machine.
I will use the same release and architecture of the current machine.

In addition to relevant man pages I refer to:
