In this article, I will describe the installation of Debian 10 on an installed Vmware Workstation 15 Player . If you do not have Vmware WSP on your computer, you can download it using the link below, I would like to remind you that the Player version is free.
After completing the vmware installation, we can proceed to the virtual server installation for Debian . For this, click “Create a New Virtual Machine” on the Vmware screen.
The New machine setup wizard will appear. Here show the Debian iso file you downloaded earlier. If you haven’t downloaded the file, the download link is below. After showing the file, click Next.
Choose a name for your Virtual Server and where to save the file. The name here is not the hostname of the server. It will only be the name that appears on the Vmware screen.
The next screen is the hardware screen. If you want to make changes here, click the “customize hardware” button. If you don’t, click Finish. The hardware has not been modified in this article.
Leave “Power on this virtual machine after creation” checked. This will help you to open your virtual computer after pressing finis.
The first screen of the installation will be the screen where you specify how to install. Select “Graphical install” as we will continue with a visual screen here.
Note: when you click inside with the mouse, the mouse will stay in the virtual computer. If you press the CTRL and ALT key at the same time to take it out, the mouse will return to your desktop.
On the next screen, the installation language and the language of the operating system will be selected. We preferred Turkish in this article. Select English and press Continue.
As you can see on the next screen, the operating system installation language is Turkish. Now you need to choose your time zone. On this screen, select Turkey and press Continue.
Select the keyboard layout and hit continue.
In the Configure the network screen, specify the name that will be given to your computer, namely the Hostname, and click continue.
In the next part, a screen will come up asking you for the domain name in order to register your computer to a domain. If you already have a domain, you can write it. Otherwise, you can write Home in this section.
The next screen is the screen where the root user’s password is set. This user is the most authorized user in the operating system. It is very important that the password you provide is secure. If you forget this user’s password, you will need to process the operating system iso you installed to recover it.
Since it is not recommended to use the root user, you will be asked for another username to log in to your computer. Type your username and press continue.
Your username will appear below. Press continue again.
Set a password for your new user and press continue.
The next part is for disk configuration on your computer. Here we will use the entire assigned disk and use auxiliary. LVM is an acronym for Logical Volume Manager. This process will allow us to create Volumes between disks.
On the next screen, we will see the physically assigned disks on our virtual computer. In this example, only one disk is attached. Press Continue.
In this section, how to make the volumes of the discs will be selected. As a standard, in a windows installation, users’ files are created where the operating system is installed. In the Linux operating system, at the beginning of the installation, we can specify and separate the volumes where both users and log files will be installed.
The first option here is to put all files in the same volume.
The second option is to get the Home folder of the users to different volumes with Root.
The third option will allow us to create separate volumes for root, users, temp and log files.
It is awaiting our approval to do this. Yes and press continue to continue.
You can split the disks and continue this process. Here you need to determine the size of the disks to be used. We will continue using the maximum value as the standard.
A screen will appear showing what the changes are. Select Yes and press continue.
If you are going to install a package from the ISO, you need to say yes on the screen that appears. In this article, we will download the packages from the internet, so we choose No and press continue.
A screen appears where we need to specify our location, here select Turkey and press continue.
The list of relevant servers for the package is coming. Continue by selecting the standard deb.debian.org.
If you do not have a direct internet connection, you must enter the proxy information on the screen below if you are using a proxy. In this article, we will continue without using a proxy.
On the next screen, you will be asked whether you will participate in the survey or not. Since we do not agree with this article, choose no and continue.
We leave the screen where we will select the services to be installed as standard and continue.
Since there will be only one operating system on the disk, a screen will appear that recommends installing the MBR (Master Boot Record) beech. Continue by saying yes to this screen.
The screen where you will choose the place where GRUB will be installed will appear. The path /dev/sda is used in this article.
The installation will continue and after successful completion, the following screen will appear.
After your computer is turned off and on, you can log in with the user you created.
