Also when installing stuff, debconf is not installeable without perl, but
depends only on perl-base. But it is a debconf bug i guess.
also would be nice to have the current apt source lines included for
installing potato while potato is not yet stable. Or at least a warning. It
could confuse lots of people when apt-get tries to install slink stuff on a
new potato install, ...
I thought console-apt will be the default potato installer instead of dselect,
isn't it anymore so ?
Is it possible to install the base system over the net ?
