debootstrap error with the netinstall image of 13-feb
I just tried to install Linux on an iMac [17'', 1 Ghz G4, 768 MB Ram]of
mine, using the new netinstall-image of the 13-feb. It works just very
well until at some point it just seems like "crashing":
Installing base system into /target/ failed. Check
/target/var/log/debootstrap.log and /target/var/log/debootstrap.err.log
for the details.
Now, looking at those log files, i see the following:
ln: /target/usr/bin/awk: File exists
umount: /target/dev/pts: Invalid argument
umount: /target/dev/shm: Invalid argument
umount: /target/proc/bus/usb: Invalid argument
the debootstrap.err.lo is empty.
The error occurs as well with the beta-2 installer. Thought I don't know
whether there have been done many changes since, I just wanted to go
sure not to have gotten an unstable netinstall image, resp to go sure
that the beta-2 installer isn't somehow obsolete.
Searching on google for error messages concerning this problem brought
me to some sites, as for instance:
But the error described never comes close to the one I have, except for
they got to search in the same log files as I got to...
Out of memory my partition table looks like
It would be great if some of you could point me in the right direction
concerning what I am doing wrong, as I suppose that because I can't find
a similar problem it s caused by me ;-).
Please CC me, as at the moment I am not subscribed to the list.
