The templates for jigdo in cdimage.debian.org seem to be perhaps broken. Also a X driver problem.
It seems perhaps that the templates from
may contain errors.
When I run jigdo-lite against the debian-31r0a-....amd64...-1.jigdo file
I get the usual request to mount CDROM images (2 DVDs), some 3 or 4
hundred files out of 7144 are found (which may be too small, and when
I press RETURN to retrieve the remainder jigdo fails to find all the
files it is searching for, but the search is done against
It seems to me that a search should be done against
About the X driver problem:-
I have a single CPU AMD64 Athlon in a CHAINTECH PCI Express
motherboadr, wich I am running with an ATI Radeon X600 Pro 256 MB
graphics in the PCI 16x slot.
The sarge-AMD64 system does not properly recognise the graphics board,
although lspci, lspci -n and lspci -X certainly show that the board
hardware (or at least some of it) is found.
Ihave the same probem with a PCI Express nVidia 5200 PCI Express board,
but that is less surprising becaue I may need to recompile the nVidia
kernel interface with gcc-4.0.
Does anybody else observe these behaviours?
This is not a pressing problem. I have a plain PCI video card on order
to see if the problem is with the PCI Express 16x interface.
But, once again I would like to know if anybody else has the same problems.
For the moment I have plenty of other things to do. I have been planning
to migrate from Fedora to Debian for some time, at least for AMD64, and
since I am getting on in years (75) I do not work as quickly as I did
even 10 years ago
But once again I would like to hear from anybody who can shed light on
these problems. I should note that although I am more of theoretical
physicit by profession than a computer scientist, I have benn working
with hardware and softwae since 1958. Everything is a lot easier now
than it was on an IBM 602A, and on the Sydney University copy of the
Well, I ramble on. I hope that I have not bored any readers too badly.
