Debian 10.6 Buster new installation

By release of new ISOs in version 10.6 I decided to reinstall Debian on a new partition, as the previous installation is from version 8.

Let's look at the steps.

You must first download the ISO from distribution repositories. After transferring the ISO to a USB, with Etcher  start him from USB.

The Live DVD as an installer the Calamares app, one of the easiest out there. At the first just select Next

You need to define your location on the map by clicking on Greece (or wherever you want) and click Next

Set the keyboard to English, then we will put the Greek and click on Next

Immediately after you need to set the user and password. The new installer has no option for root password, and you must set it via terminal immediately after installation (sudo passwd root).

On the next screen you will see the partitions of your computer, if you have any. The options given to you by the installer are 4:

Install alongside: to install Debian alongside your existing OS. Better to avoid it because the is .

Replace a partition: to replace a partition (you already have an operating system, it will be replaced with .Debian). It works as long as you are sure you want to do it.

Erase disk: Delete the disc and

Manual partitioning: It is the option I will use. I will select a partition of my disk and install the operating system.

First I select sda12 (be careful in your case it will have a different name) and select in ext4 and as a mount point I give him /.

Then I choose sda1 where the boot files of the operating systems I use already exist. So I don't choose Format but , and as mount point I give it /boot/efi.

You may need to add a swap partition. In my installation the swap already exists from others , so I choose keep and not format so that the UUID in the partition does not change and present problems to the installed distributions.

You can then select Next to go to the confirmation screen.

If you agree, select Next and the installation will begin.

Τα νέα Live DVD της διανομής περιέχουν και μια ρύθμιση που δεν υπήρχε παλαιότερα. Ο εγκατάστάτης θα σας ζητήσει ένα κωδικό για την εφαρμογή kdewallet, αλλά και τον τρόπο κρυπτογράφησης των σας. Επέλεξα blowfish έδωσα ένα password και η εγκατάσταση προχώρησε

The installation is complete. But I have to display the distribution in the existing grub menu. So I boot with the Manjaro distribution that I use only for Grub Menu, because it shows the system from which I requested the reboot.

As you can see in sda12 is the new installation. The grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg command found the new installation and added it to the grub menu.

We are ready. All that remains is to install the applications I use and then copy the settings from the older distribution (see sda6).
