Bug#66326: Debian Bug report logs - #66326 (images-1.44/rescue.bin)

> Package: boot-floppies
> Version: 2.2.15
> When installing from harddisk, rescue.bin is looked for in the
> images-1.44 directory. If it is not found in this directory
> the installation does not proceed.
> Normally all the installation files are placed in one directory.
> Rescue.bin should be looked for in this directory.
> The only way to install now is to create a images-1.44 directory
> and copy rescue.bin to it. This is undocumented.

The dialog says:

        Please select the partition where your Debian Archive resides.

It should be logical that the system expects to find a proper Debian
directory structure.  It continues to ask:

        Please choose the path inside the harddisk
        filesystem where the Debian Archive resides.

When hitting [enter] (by accepting the default or something) the system
looks for these files [calling choose_archive_dir()]:

Checking /instmnt/dists/potato/main/disks-i386/current/images-1.44/rescue.bin
Checking /instmnt/dists/potato/main/disks-i386/current/rescue.bin
Checking /instmnt/dists/potato/main/disks-i386/current/drivers.tgz

So... Looks like it does the proper thing.



There are lies, statistics and benchmarks.
