Easy Install on Debian, Ubuntu & Raspbian

Post by OO-Dragon » Sun Jan 12, 2020 8:16 pm

** Note: The Debian installer has been retired since a pure shell script just works better **

I have created a generic script to install Darkstar on Debian, Ubuntu 18.04 or Raspbian (both 32 & 64 bit).

The script automates as much as possible and you are only required to enter a username, password and IP address.

Installing Darkstar
1. Open a terminal on whichever OS you have chosen (Debian, Ubuntu or Raspbian)
2. Run the following command in the terminal

Code: Select all

wget -O darkstar_install_script.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/DarkstarProject/darkstar/master/darkstar_install_script.sh && sudo bash darkstar_install_script.sh
If you need to change configurations, you can re-run the script above or manually edit the files located in /opt/darkstar/

I hope people find this useful. Please report bugs here or in the GitHub repository.

That is amazing. I could never get FFXI to work with anything debian based. I run arch and it runs fine as long as you use a special dll file for wine.

It definitely took a while to figure everything out, and when I was done and had the server setup for my brother, I thought I would simplify the process as much as possible for others. Thus the Debian installer was born!

Hopefully, this will save many hours of frustration for people setting up a server.

I fixed an issue where the installer would not work on Ubuntu Desktop (I was testing on the Server version).
If you tried before and it didn't work, it should be good to go now.
