Subject: Hamm install: can't extract base files
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
I recently purchased a crisp new set of "official" Debian 2 CDROMs
from LSL. I've been running Debian 1.2, but for various
reasons I decided to do a clean install rather than wrestle with the
upgrade issues. I booted my system from the CDROM and
was able to mount "/" and "/usr" on my existing partitions. I had no
problem making a boot floppy with the new kernel, but when
I tried to install the base system from the CDROM I repeatedly got
"Error extracting ... from ...base2_0.tgz" messages. I tried
copying the archive to a FAT partition and extracting it from there, but
got the same results. When I boot NT and open the file with
WinZIP it looks fine, both on the CDROM and on the hard drive. I have a
feeling this isn't a bug, and that I should have done something
before installation to get my old system out of the way. Suggestions?
Keep up the good work. Thanks.
