The GNU/Hurd installation instructions vary a bit over time, but these are
my notes from 5 months ago. Fill in the ****** fields.



Start VirtualBox. Create new VM.

Disk size: 8 GB

Pseudo-graphical install.
Language: English
Location: United States
Keymap: American English
Hostname: ******
Domain name: ******

No root account.
login: ******
password: ******

Accept a dummy time zone.

Partitioning: Entire disk. All files in one partition.

Software selection: Debian desktop environment. (Well, that was not necessary,
as I didn't really get the desktop running later.)

Reboot. Eject CD-ROM.

Set time zone: sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

Install packages:
Insert CD-ROM, boot, "Boot from first hard disk".
$ sudo apt install g++-12 gdb make vim
$ sudo apt install emacs     # not available

Package list for further packages:
