Re: Which AMD64 installer iso to use?



As explained below
for installation of amd64 debian testing with Tyan K8WE with two dual 265 amd 
opteron starting from installer downloaded a couple of days ago from
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/
I am halted at "booted from the ram disk"
With LeftAlt-F1 I get ash provided with nano and, if i know how, i could 
redirect the installer to, I suppose, the installer CD-ROM

I just tried

~#dhclient

and, if i understand, the one of the three ports (eth1 nvidia) is OK, as 
shown, inter alia, by:
Listening on LPF/eth1/00:e0:81:57:d1:ba
Sending on LPF/eth1/00:e0:81:57:d1:ba
DHCPREQUEST on eth1 to 255,255.255.2555 port 67
DHCPAK from 192.168.1.34 -- renewal in 129600 seconds.

ANYWAY THE WPROKSTATION IS LEFT RUNNING TO RUN ANY USEFUL SUGGESTION

I am using the above TESTING installer with the above hardware (having chosen, 
at the installer request, ftp.de.debian.org as mirror; internet is ok on this 
pc bound to the same rooter).

I must say that everything run smoothly, raid1 MD (I choose 
separate /, /usr, /var, swap, /tmp), root pass, user pass, but  base system 
installation failed, althoug the installer CD-ROM had not been removed. 
Apparently the system expected SARGE:

Debootstrap error: failed getting release file:///cdrom/dists/sarge/release

I insisted and the window "preparing to install the base system appeared for a 
long while but exited with the same above error, reporting errors at virtual 
console 4.
LeftAlt-F4 is very long, the two last lines:
---Running /usr/lib/base-installer.d/40netcf
---exiting on error base-installer/debootstrap-failed

On Enter, further lines report about kernel
---md: using max available idle IO bandwidth (but no more than 200000 KB/sec) 
for reconstruction.
---md: using 128k window, ober a total of 2931712 blocks.
---raid1 conf printout:
---wd:2 ed:2
---disk 0, wo:0, 0:1, dev:sda9.
---disk1, wo:0, 0:1. dev:sdb9.
---md: md2: sync done.
---as abore repeated for sda6 and asb6

Hope to get suggestions as either letting the testin CD-ROM being recognized 
or something else. Nothing against installing Sarge at this point,, only to 
know how.

THE WORKSATTION IS LEFT RUNNING IN THE HOPE OF A RECOVERING SUGGESTION

Thank you
