I'm trying to build sid isos but I'm unable to make them bootable since
tools/boot/sid/boot-i386 is not present.
Are You able to produce sid bootable images ?
If so can You please send me your CONF.sh and the proper sequence of make targets ?
Here's what I try:
make bin-list TASK=tasks/Debian_sid
make bin-image CD=1
# This file will have to be sourced where needed
# Unset all optional variables first to start from a clean state
