Install Linux Mint Debian Edition 6

I am assuming, that you want to use a Debian based Operating System (not Ubuntu based) and you want Proxmox, Docker and GPT4All installed on your Laptop. Here I am using Linux Mint Debian Edition 6

let's get started:

Go trough installation process


Install Proxmox VE

Upgrade the system and install some basic tools

sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade -y
sudo apt install vim git curl wget htop ssh netcat-traditional openvpn

Cerate a Interface used for LXC Containers: edit /etc/network/interfaces

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto enp2s0
iface enp2s0 inet static

        post-up echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
        post-up iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s '' -o enp0s3 -j MASQUERADE
        post-down iptables -t nat -D POSTROUTING -s '' -o enp0s3 -j MASQUERADE

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

Edit hosts file, needed to install proxmox successfully vim /etc/hosts       localhost   devstation.proxmox.local devstation

hostname --ip-address # should return your IP address here

Add Proxmox Repos and gpg key

echo "deb [arch=amd64] bookworm pve-no-subscription" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-install-repo.list
wget -O /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/proxmox-release-bookworm.gpg 

Upgrade Packagebase, Install Proxmox Kernel and reboot

apt update && apt full-upgrade
apt install pve-kernel-6.2
systemctl reboot

Install Proxmox, remove Debian Kernel, update Grub bootloader and remove os-prober

apt install proxmox-ve postfix open-iscsi chrony
apt remove linux-image-amd64 'linux-image-6.1*'
apt remove os-prober

We log into the webinterface with root user, so it needs to have a password

sudo -i

Now navigate to your browser with this URL

Accept the security exception and enter your root password
