Sometimes somebody has to explain this "directory" thingy to me. No matter
what I enter there, it doesn't like it. I have a directory named Debian-2.3
on an affs partition. I tried /instmnt/Debian-2.3, /Debian-2.3 and various
combinations, it doesn't find it. Maybe its an affs weirdo. The "search"
method however works fine.
Irritating is, it says searching for Release when in fact its searching for
basedebs.tgz. It finds it but then says there was a problem unpacking the
tarball (the acutal error message is overwriten by that window, console-3
only tells me there as a problem, like in the error window). Checking the
tarball (under AmigaOS) does not show any problems. And it does not look as
if I had run out of space, the partition is only ~100MB, but there are still
68MB available. But maybe other testers have more luck...
