Re: cvs commit to boot-floppies by dwhedon
Good new is we have somewhat working woody boot-floppies (on i386 now at least).
I booted off resc1440.bin, root.bin. I had to manually insmod my ethernet
module (see note below). dbootstrap now supports debootstrap. Some kinks need
to be worked out (see below) but overall it is going well. I couldn't complete
the base install as we are still waiting for console-data to sneek into testing.
I added a list of known problems to the top of boot-floppies/todo, I'll include
them here starting with the most interesting one:
- debootstrap's invocation of wget sometimes dies with:
wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.0 403 Forbidden
It doesn't happen all the time and when it does we are in the middle of
downloading packages, so it isn't that the connection isn't getting started.
One time it died when it had gotten all the way to 'findutils'. I tried
http.us.debian.org and it happenned. Next time I tried ftp.debian.org and I
didn't have a problem. I have never seen this happen on my normal system, so
possibly there is a problem with busybox wget. Once I put a sniffer on it
though, it didn't happen again :-(
These three are probably easy to fix, I haven't looked into them much:
- At startup I get : Error loading the keymap i386/querty/us.bmap form
- syslogd not working, maybe it is because /dev/log doesn't exist, I get tail:
/var/log/messages: No such file or directory I ctrl-C it a few times and try
manually starting syslogd, mkfifo /dev/log, eventually it works, not sure
what I actually needed to do.
- modconf doesn't find any modules. My only choice is to be finished and
return to the previous menu.
