comment Is there a health risk from radiation with a laptop power supply?

If you are talking about Debian system like in your example, yes, but don't try to e.g. mix rpm and yum in weird ways.

comment No network on freshly installed Debian
Also, ifconfig is /sbin/ifconfig which isn't in a user's PATH on Debian. You will need to call it with the full path as a user.
