firstly there does not appear to be a d-i tag or equivalent so I am operating under the assumption that all questions about the debian installer will be tagged but when I search for "[debian] installer" the signal to noise ratio is atrocious due to automatic inclusion of related words. I am not interested in in installing mplayer, how to install vlc, or broken wine installation.

Is there a way to tune my search?

  • I usually break out and go to Google search for this type of thing, or add in user names such as user:gilles or myself or whomever, but for your search you'd be correct that the noise is bad.

  • unix.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/debian+installer You can search for multiple tags.

  • I think having a debian-installer tag would be reasonable. Jan 28, 2014 at 0:23
  • @FaheemMitha I found one question that would use it and I have another to add.

  • @hildred I assume you don't have the rep to add it. I think I do, but Let's see what others say first. Jan 28, 2014 at 0:26
  • @FaheemMitha apparently I do (it only needs 300).

  • Search for debian system-installation (or debian install for older posts, but we're phasing out the install tag). Jan 29, 2014 at 23:14

We use the tag for installing systems. Therefore, use [debian] [system-installation] as your search query, and that should get you relevant results.
