How much time do we have before you upload 2.3.7? I have 2.3.5 ready for
m68k, but I can't get it through the phone line...
Trying 2.3.6 on another machine, but I have to iron out some setup problems
One is the downloading of packages, it works for some, it doesn't work for
others, I suspect (without any proof yet) that it does work for others, only
the error message is wrong/misleading. This is from my lastest try on a
networked machine, boot-floppies-2.3.6 installed, no changes to the config
I: downloading kernel-image-2.2.19-atari
I: downloading required packages from files
E: Couldn't find package debootstrap
can't find package, or no such package, 'ash'
can't find package, or no such package, 'base-passwd'
can't find package, or no such package, 'busybox'
can't find package, or no such package, 'dhcp-client'
can't find package, or no such package, 'debootstrap'
can't find package, or no such package, 'e2fsprogs'
So the kernel-image is downloaded fine, then when a bunch of packages is to
be downloaded, it fails. There is no deboostrap package in the archive for
m68k, maybe it chockes on that and (erroneously) "fails" on all the others
as well? I know that we have "ash" and many others in the archive.
Now that I built debootstrap and put it into /archive/debian/Incoming the
build does not fail at this place. Which I find is a pretty good proof of
the "misleading" error messages, maybe its even wrong.
Sorry no patch (but I uploaded debootstrap for m68k :-)
