Step 1.) Upgrade to Debian 11 first
The process to go to Debian 12 is not as smooth as 11, when trying to upgrade from Debian 10. In fact, it doesn't work directly, so you'll first need to follow this guide to update to Debian 11, reboot and come back here if successful.
Step 2.) Update sources.list
Update your /etc/apt/sources.list like this:
The issue is that Docker images are stripped down, so many tools and even python3 is missing, so you'll have to build or update the actual image yourself.
I assume you have started an image with something like this and that you have the Nvidia Toolkit installed (assuming you are using GPUs). If you're not using nvidia just remove --runtime=nvidia --gpus all.
docker run -it --runtime=nvidia --gpus all ubuntu bash
These works for most images li........
In this example we install debian 10 with --variant=minbase which gives us a minimal/tiny install. Don't use variant if you want the full size install.
debootstrap --variant=minbase buster /tmp/deb10files/
Did you get an error?
debootstrap --variant=minbase buster /home/theuser/VMs/deb10files/
You'll get this error if you make a directory in your home........
This is not the normal "black screen"issue and I was shocked to eventually find out why. The normal advice of reconfiguring Xorg didn't work. Even booting into "Recovery Mode" did not help.
Here is the short end of the stick that fixed it:
sudo apt-get install mdm mate-desktop-environment
Yes you got it right, mdm and the mate-desktop-environment / gnome were somehow uninstalled. This must be whe........
#if you have nvidia make sure you install the nvidia-cuda-toolkit so hardware acceleration can be used

I flashed an LSI Logic firmware to it and it broke the BIOS (cannot do Ctrl+R) for booting purposes but allows other functionality to work normally.
I tried downgrading to a Dell firmware for Perc 6i but it won't work, not even with MegaCli

Solution To The Following:
yum -y install zlib-devel
yum -y install e2fsprogs*
*** Cannot find /usr/include/et/com_err.h. (yum install libcom_err-devel) ***
Installation didn't pass, halting install.
Once requirements are met, run the following to continue the install:
Common pre-install commands:
This function and others may not work with the stock PHPinstall on Centos/CPanel: Fatal error: Call to > undefined function imagecreatefromjpeg()
Even with libjpeg-devel installed it won't work because PHP was not compiled with jpeg support, so we have to do the dirty work ourselves :)
Here is the command/yum's I did to install missing libraries for PHP that configure will complain about (yes it is a one by one process).
yum install bzip2-........

The dmg format is silly and annoying to work with, why couldn't Apple stick with the .iso standard? Anyway, there's an excellent Linux and Windows based tool to convert it back to a normal .iso Image called dmg2iso
I'll only cover theLinux version although the Windows pre-built binary works the same way.
Download dmg2iso here for free (from the author's website)
It's just silly and doesn't make sense that Ubuntu doe........
