Monolithic Installer Question
I just tried the 13 Feb sid-amd64-monolithic.iso wondering
if this installer would fetch everything from the internet
without having any internal packages. There was a problem
with selecting the mirrors. The installer correctly looked
for an debian-amd64 mirror except the mirror list seems to
be for the i386 archive. There doesn't seem to be a way to
enter the mirror only select from the list.
Also, the ext3 filesystem was made except the partition
later was identified as ext2 when mounting from my current
The installation failed because no valid mirror with
Packages file for debian-amd64 was found.
The specific problem I wanted to address is the netcfg. The
broadcast address is set to 0.0.0.0 instead of x.x.x.255.
There was no way to enter the address. The 0.0.0.0 address
causes my DSL modem to crash. This is also a problem on
i386. This should be easy to correct if the proper developer
Question: Who or where should I file a bug report as follows?
This was done correctly:
========= installation /etc/network/interfaces ==============
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
# dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
This was not done correctly:
======== installation ifconfig ===============
