Ok, gotcha. On the first try I got a kernel panic when formatting the
logical volume but now I have an updated chroot. sbuild is next, then
buildd. The wiki is still a bit sketchy, IMHO, I'll probably add a few
things. If only as a reminder for myself, since there are a few more
machines waiting to be set up.
So what is the problem with debootstrapping unstable? Are some important
packages still in unreleased, and btw what is "unreleased"? Do they have
m68k specific patches that are not yet in the debian version? Then I hope it
is only a matter of time until they move to unstable. That might help in
getting a working d-i, and maybe new CD images *dream* :-)
