  • Download and burn a Damn small linux 4.4.10 ISO (syslinux)
  • Install process : select framebuffer fb1024×768
  • After installing on HDD, first step :
  • Check and fine tune the Ethernet Adapter ( driver : EPRO100 )
    - Panel->Netcardconfig , and Panel->DHCP client toggle button : enable/disable if using a dhcp
    - use mii-tool to configure it properly ( ex : mii-tool -v eth0 ) : 10/100 , HD or FullDuplex..
    - perform several pings to be sure the connection works properly ( no eth0 hang-outs.. ) : errors can be checked fast by looking at the dmesg button of the Panel->System Stats
  • then enable gnu utils  ( busybox is really poor ) ,in DSL->App->tools->upgrade to GNU utils
  • enable aptitude : DSL->App->tools->Enable APT

–> Any error while downloading a file will corrupt the md5sum checksum process. if an error occured while downloading , remove the corrupted file and it’s checksum file before retrying the download process
