Re: ARM installer images for etch (4.0) currently broken

Thanks to Rainer and Wouter for this workaround!

Q: How does one invoke the "expert" mode in the "unofficial image" for the NSLU2 installer? Essentially, Rainer's instructions invoke "expert mode" the hard way, but if there's an easy way to get into expert mode right from the start, I'd like to know about it.

Hi Martin,

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"

Yes, that works. An alternative is to use the "expert" mode of the
installation; the effect is exactly the same (expert mode is defined as
"run the installation at low priority")

However, expert mode isn't as easy to install as the "regular" mode.
