Debootstrap Procedure for the LS Pro

This method of installing debian on your LS Pro requires another linux computer on your network.


  1. On your linux workstation, install debootstrap.
  2. Run debootstrap --foreign --arch arm etch <Target> <Mirror>
 * <Target> represents the destination directory for the debootstrap. I'm assuming you picked /target.
 * <Mirror> must be a debian mirror that has etch arm packages. works.
  1. Now edit /target/etc/fstab to contain the following:
 proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=20 0 0
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs mode=1777 0 0
/dev/sda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sda1 /boot ext3 noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/sda6 /mnt/disk1 xfs noatime,nodiratime 0 0
  1. Edit /target/etc/network/interfaces and add:

/target/etc/network/interfaces. install

                     miconapl and micro_evtd. send a tarball of /target to LS Pro. on LS Pro in EM mode: unpack tarball to /mnt/disk1/deb. chroot /mnt/disk1/deb. /debootstrap/debootstrap --second-stage. format
