1. Tried both kernels. With 32-bit I was getting segmentation fault
immediately, the output I sent is from using amd64 kernel.
2. I used exactly the same syntax on the command line, only in
dfs:~# cdebootstrap -v --debug -a amd64 sid /mnt file:///opt/packages
Unfortunately it's not easy for me to try alioth repository via http
as I'm off-line at home. Is there a way to mirror alioth, so that I
could be able to use it from a harddisk for instance?
