Just my notes for fresh debian installations. Till now i always start from beginning again what packages are needed to compile mplayer etc. This is desktop-based.

# boot a knoppix, grml or other debian-based livecd. Must have debootstrap onboard.
fdisk /dev/sda       # create partitions, at least one for / and one for swap.
cat /proc/partitions # see if partitions come up, if not execute 'partprobe' or reboot
mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1  # create filesystem

mkdir /new
# mount fresh partition
mount /dev/sda1 /new
cd /new

# create fresh debian with arch amd64
debootstrap --arch=amd64 sid /mnt/tmp
echo 'proc /proc proc defaults 0 0' >etc/fstab
echo 'sysfs none sysfs defaults 0 0' >>etc/fstab
echo '/dev/sda1 / ext4 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1'  >>etc/fstab
mount -t proc none /new/proc
mount -t sysfs none sys/
mount -t devtmpfs none dev
chroot /new /bin/bash

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
echo 'latern' >/etc/hostname
echo ' latern localhost' >/etc/hosts
echo "alias ll='ls -al'" >>/etc/profile
echo "export EDITOR=vi" >>/etc/profile

apt-get install locales console-data screen
apt-cache search linux-image                # what linux-images are there?
apt-get install linux-image-amd64
echo '(hd0) /dev/sda' >/boot/grub/
grub-install /dev/sda

apt-get install ssh                         # ensure basic access to the system via network

reboot # boot fresh system
