I can log into the second console.
This happened with each of these two isos.
Are you trying to finish installation or fix the installer?
Actually, I have used the 19 Feb sid netinst without the
same problem. The exim has been updated recently and might
be different. This could also be due to a misconfigured
network or a modem crash. I doubt the netboot would work
without a bootp and tftp server if at all.
To just get past the problem edit the /etc/init.d/exim4 and
put "exit 0" near the first line. Maybe using the ps -ax and
then kill exim from the second console would work. Then you
could fix the exim config later.
Did you wait long enough? Those things usually timeout.
Somebody else might want the debug info.
