I'm having a problem installing Sarge with ISO images. I get the base
system installed ok. After the first reboot I am presented with a
configuration menu. I get as far as configuring apt by letting it scan 5 of
my iso images. I have no net connection. It scans my cd's and says that
apt is configured and I can select over 3500 packages. When I go to select
the packages the install hangs.
What do you mean? He scans the CD's, you put in all 5 of them, one at a
time. Then he asks you whether you want to run tasksel, or whatever,
what do you say?
Does he install packages?
Do you ever get: "Thank you for choosing Debian"?
After rebooting I ask for a shell and
manually type tasksel and get to choose some packages to install. When I
select finish it asks me for the fisrt iso image. I put the cd in and hit
enter and it continues to ask me for disk 1 over and over again.
You mean he says "Insert CD#1", you do so, he reads it, and says "Insert
CD#1" again, or he keeps saying it without reading the CD?
what I am doing wrong. Is the Sarge installer broken? I have had the very
same problem on two different machines now. Thanks for any adivce. --Joe
