Re: ARM installer images for etch (4.0) currently broken
I want to let you know that in my opinion it is still possible to
install Debian 4.0 on NSLU2 using the "normal" installation method.
I used the "unofficial image" (with the driver for the internal network
interface included) to do the installation.
However after connecting to the installer via SSH do the following:
- start the menu
- choose "<Go Back>"
- choose "Change debconf priority" and set the priority to "low"
- resume installation with "Choose a mirror of the Debian archive"
Till then you have to answer more details, but the benefit was you'll be
asked which kernel you want to use:
- choose "linux-image-2.6.18-5-ixp4xx" and the further installation
should work as expected
I did this workaround serveral times and till now I noticed no further
I hope this will help to make the installation easier till the real
issue is fixed.
