Re: d-i problem with Penguin-19.sit (SOLVED)

WRT .sit, .sea, etc.

At the risk of stating the obvious, (and getting flamed), the Mac OS, prior to X identified files by type and creator parameters which are lost when a file is transfered by a non-Mac aware process. While a .sea (self extracting archive) is an executable, a Mac won't know this unless the type is set to Appl. This can be done by Resedit and other programs. Of course this still leaves the chicken
& egg problem of installing a Mac file from a non-Mac system.

A data file, such as a Stuffit archive, can be opened from within a stuffit aware program without setting the correct type creator. Later versions of the Mac OS
came with an extension/control panel to deal with "foreign" files.

now, just to keep you posted. I have been able to install Debian now and
it seems to be working quite well. I've used the netinstaller iso cvs
snapshot from 20040812, bootet vmlinuz-2.2.25 with root22.bin.

That made me go thru harddisk partitioning twice (the first of which was
dreadfully slow, the second one, was much better). All the rest was ok.

Now i have only the funny situation that i do have ssh and sendfile
installed and can connect to them locally. Yet from the network i
encounter timeouts from my router. From the workstation i even get a "no
route to host".

Any idea what's wrong here? (the net setup is a regular 192.168.x/24
which is setup identically on all 3 hosts)

Best regards,
