Hello world, I've done a couple of slink installs recently, with some success. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to do either of them from CD (the first, the CD drive was some weird parallel port SCSI thing, which I just gave up on, and the second I didn't have a Debian CD in the first place) Anyway, both times I did have a working fast ethernet connection, and it was /really/ annoying that I couldn't just ftp the base disks from somewhere. I'd thus like to ask for the program snarf to be added to the bootdisks for potato. It's GPLed, and I presume it's small enough not to cause too many problems: [aj@sapphire ~]$ ls -l /usr/bin/snarf -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 19244 Dec 31 02:34 /usr/bin/snarf* [aj@sapphire ~]$ ldd /usr/bin/snarf libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40010000) /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000) It supports ftp, http (proxies and authenticated), and gopher urls. Please please please? (that said, copying stuff to windows drives from within windows, and using the NFS option got me through, so mostly it was all pretty good) Cheers, aj -- Anthony Towns <firstname.lastname@example.org> <http://azure.humbug.org.au/~aj/> I don't speak for anyone save myself. PGP encrypted mail preferred. ``Like the ski resort of girls looking for husbands and husbands looking for girls, the situation is not as symmetrical as it might seem.''
