Is there an option to do a remote ssh install(fiesty)

Asked by Peasy on 2007-08-23

After a 8 hour battle trying to install official copy of Fiesty on my laptop , (clean install), I would like a remote install done from start to finish. Would even pay for premium support if needed . NEWBIE but feeling my way around in the dark is getting old.

if there is no OS on the system you won't be able to ssh into anything. SSH is a software feature, not hardware.

If there is already a unix os on the machine, and you want to install a second OS you can boot the first os, ssh into it and install in a chroot.

I honestly do not remember if you can install applications on the livecd to your RAM, but if you can, run "sudo apt-get install openssh-server" in your terminal to install an SSH server, and from there see if someone will install it remote access. Is there a specific problem you are running into? The GUI for installing Ubuntu is the easiest route to go.

Peasy, if you're able to use the live-cd, then it's possible for others to help you through the install, yes. Open System > Preferences > Remote Desktop. That will enable other users to connect to your machine using a VNC client (viewer), such as tightvnc viewer. They can then do the install for you as you watch. The easiest is probably to set a password and give it, along with your IP address to the helper.
