20### Network configuration
21# Disable network configuration entirely. This is useful for cdrom
22# installations on non-networked devices where the network questions,
23# warning and long timeouts are a nuisance.
24#d-i netcfg/enable boolean false

132### Partitioning
133## Partitioning example
134# If the system has free space you can choose to only partition that space.
135# This is only honoured if partman-auto/method (below) is not set.
136#d-i partman-auto/init_automatically_partition select biggest_free
137
138# Alternatively, you may specify a disk to partition. If the system has only
139# one disk the installer will default to using that, but otherwise the device
140# name must be given in traditional, non-devfs format (so e.g. /dev/hda or
141# /dev/sda, and not e.g. /dev/discs/disc0/disc).
142# For example, to use the first SCSI/SATA hard disk:
143#d-i partman-auto/disk string /dev/sda
144# In addition, you'll need to specify the method to use.
145# The presently available methods are:
146# - regular: use the usual partition types for your architecture
147# - lvm: use LVM to partition the disk
148# - crypto: use LVM within an encrypted partition
149d-i partman-auto/method string lvm
150
151# If one of the disks that are going to be automatically partitioned
152# contains an old LVM configuration, the user will normally receive a
153# warning. This can be preseeded away...
154d-i partman-lvm/device_remove_lvm boolean true
155# The same applies to pre-existing software RAID array:
156d-i partman-md/device_remove_md boolean true
157# And the same goes for the confirmation to write the lvm partitions.
158d-i partman-lvm/confirm boolean true
159
160# You can choose one of the three predefined partitioning recipes:
161# - atomic: all files in one partition
162# - home: separate /home partition
163# - multi: separate /home, /usr, /var, and /tmp partitions
164d-i partman-auto/choose_recipe select atomic
165
166# Or provide a recipe of your own...
167# If you have a way to get a recipe file into the d-i environment, you can
168# just point at it.
169#d-i partman-auto/expert_recipe_file string /hd-media/recipe
170
171# If not, you can put an entire recipe into the preconfiguration file in one
172# (logical) line. This example creates a small /boot partition, suitable
173# swap, and uses the rest of the space for the root partition:
174#d-i partman-auto/expert_recipe string \
175# boot-root :: \
176# 40 50 100 ext3 \
177# $primary{ } $bootable{ } \

179# use_filesystem{ } filesystem{ ext3 } \

183# method{ format } format{ } \
184# use_filesystem{ } filesystem{ ext3 } \
185# mountpoint{ / } \
186# . \
187# 64 512 300% linux-swap \
188# method{ swap } format{ } \
189# .
190
191# The full recipe format is documented in the file partman-auto-recipe.txt
192# included in the 'debian-installer' package or available from D-I source
193# repository. This also documents how to specify settings such as file
194# system labels, volume group names and which physical devices to include
195# in a volume group.
196
197# This makes partman automatically partition without confirmation, provided
198# that you told it what to do using one of the methods above.
199d-i partman-partitioning/confirm_write_new_label boolean true
200d-i partman/choose_partition select finish
201d-i partman/confirm boolean true
202d-i partman/confirm_nooverwrite boolean true

204## Partitioning using RAID
205# The method should be set to "raid".
206#d-i partman-auto/method string raid
207# Specify the disks to be partitioned. They will all get the same layout,
208# so this will only work if the disks are the same size.
209#d-i partman-auto/disk string /dev/sda /dev/sdb
210
211# Next you need to specify the physical partitions that will be used.
212#d-i partman-auto/expert_recipe string \
213# multiraid :: \
214# 1000 5000 4000 raid \

220# 500 10000 1000000000 raid \
221# method{ raid } \
222# .
223
224# Last you need to specify how the previously defined partitions will be
225# used in the RAID setup. Remember to use the correct partition numbers
226# for logical partitions. RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6 and 10 are supported;
227# devices are separated using "#".
228# Parameters are:
229# <raidtype> <devcount> <sparecount> <fstype> <mountpoint> \
230# <devices> <sparedevices>

252d-i partman/confirm_nooverwrite boolean true
253
254## Controlling how partitions are mounted
255# The default is to mount by UUID, but you can also choose "traditional" to
256# use traditional device names, or "label" to try filesystem labels before
257# falling back to UUIDs.
258#d-i partman/mount_style select uuid
259
260### Base system installation
261# Configure APT to not install recommended packages by default. Use of this
262# option can result in an incomplete system and should only be used by very
263# experienced users.

311#d-i pkgsel/upgrade select none
312
313# Some versions of the installer can report back on what software you have
314# installed, and what software you use. The default is not to report back,
315# but sending reports helps the project determine what software is most
316# popular and include it on CDs.
317#popularity-contest popularity-contest/participate boolean false
318
319### Finishing up the installation
320# During installations from serial console, the regular virtual consoles
321# (VT1-VT6) are normally disabled in /etc/inittab. Uncomment the next
322# line to prevent this.

326d-i finish-install/reboot_in_progress note

336#d-i debian-installer/exit/poweroff boolean true
337
338### Preseeding other packages
339# Depending on what software you choose to install, or if things go wrong
340# during the installation process, it's possible that other questions may
341# be asked. You can preseed those too, of course. To get a list of every
342# possible question that could be asked during an install, do an
343# installation, and then run these commands:
344# debconf-get-selections --installer > file
345# debconf-get-selections >> file
346
347
348#### Advanced options
349### Running custom commands during the installation
350# d-i preseeding is inherently not secure. Nothing in the installer checks
351# for attempts at buffer overflows or other exploits of the values of a
352# preconfiguration file like this one. Only use preconfiguration files from
353# trusted locations! To drive that home, and because it's generally useful,
354# here's a way to run any shell command you'd like inside the installer,
355# automatically.
356
357# This first command is run as early as possible, just after
358# preseeding is read.
359#d-i preseed/early_command string anna-install some-udeb
360# This command is run immediately before the partitioner starts. It may be
361# useful to apply dynamic partitioner preseeding that depends on the state
362# of the disks (which may not be visible when preseed/early_command runs).
363#d-i partman/early_command \
364# string debconf-set partman-auto/disk "$(list-devices disk | head -n1)"
365# This command is run just before the install finishes, but when there is
366# still a usable /target directory. You can chroot to /target and use it
367# directly, or use the apt-install and in-target commands to easily install
368# packages and run commands in the target system.
369#d-i preseed/late_command string apt-install zsh; in-target chsh -s /bin/zsh
