After building and installing ECI core image core-bullseye

I follow instructions to install desktop environment.

After sending the apt command to install mate or xfce desktop environment, it seem to want to remove init and systemd, and requires me to type "yes, do as I say!" To continue 

If I do, it fails with too many dpkg errors, related.tk removing systemd

Hi grandixximo,


Apologies for the delay, this took longer than expected. I was able to install the desktop environment using the steps below. Could you please give it a try and let me know if it works for you?


sudo apt update

sudo apt install sysvinit-core systemd-sysv-

echo "auto enp0s3

iface enp0s3 inet dhcp" > /etc/network/interfaces.d/enp0s3

reboot

sudo -E apt install task-desktop task-mate-desktop

reboot


Regards,

Jesus

Yes, it does work

I would just like to add before echo the network config, you should send 

 

ip a

 

that will list your devices names, and you should change enp0s3 in the command for whatever device you have hooked up to the internet.

also after successfully installing the desktop packages, use 

 

rm /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

 

command to delete the file that was created from the echo command.
