Package: boot-floppies
Version: N/A
Severity: important

got the latest testing disks-i386 pakcage to intall sid / testing over the internet and the network was set up and kernel packages installed (from local hard drive).

When trying to install the base system, it would ask for the location to download from, and then show an error saying debootstrap exited abnormally and come back to the main menu. There was not more information on the tty3.

Attempted to run debootstrap manually, copying the commandline from tty3, failed mentioning  along the lines about architecture not detected and other times about 3:  invalid file descriptor.

I tried export ARCH=i386 and tried just debootstrap sid /target which seemed to start something. Pressed Ctrl-C because the command line was different. went back to tty and tried install base system again. This time, it seemed to work. It got all the packages from the us site (not the uk site, my guess possibly due to slow mirroring or something - dont know) until all wingtail was downloaded and then in crashed out again with same error. Nothing more informative in tty3 again.

Hope this helps. I have reverted to some old cd's to install the distribution. Could try to reproduce if important.


PS: dont know if this will show my correct email address. if it doesnt, please use prince_shri@yahoo.dot.com (Please remote dot. trying to keep spam out)

 boot-floppies (3.0.9) unstable; urgency=low
   * Falk Hueffner
     - New library reducing script mklibs.py, using different algorithm
       that is likelier not to add unneeded symbols. Activated by default
       for Alpha, since mklibs.sh doesn't make them small enough;
       we may move all arches to this in next release
     - Don't copy sys_map and kernel config to rescue floppy on Alpha since
       aboot doesn't fit otherwise.
   * David Kimdon
     - no free adverstising for commercial companies
       closes: #105492
     - Update Danish dbootstrap messages thanks to
       Claus Hindsgaul <claus_h@image.dk>
   * Richard Hirst
     - fix md5sum.txt contents for hppa
     - doc updates for ia64 and hppa
     - move elilo in to /usr/sbin
     - call ia64 kernel linux rather than vmlinux to match other archs
     - ia64 and hppa now use 2.4.7 kernel
   * John H. Robinson, IV
     - Fixed the serial console not 9600 problem
     - Added ReiserFS support
   * Martin Schulze
     - fix nfsroot detection problem for mips

   * Phil Blundell
     - ARM is now using kernel 2.4.5
   * Christian T. Steigies
     - m68k: add more Mac (not map...) keymaps to keymaps.gz.
       I waited one week for a Mac user to test it. Nobody dared...

     - build-depend on syslinux for i386
       closes: #107517
     - sparc/sun4u uses kernel-image-2.4.7-sun4u (not 2.4.4)
     - root filesystem: provide /var/dhcp, hopefully this will help when
       dhclient fails
       closes: #107381
   * Guido Guenther
     - dbootstrap: changes for dvhtool support and other MIPS porting
       issues; ip22 should boot now
     - mips now buildable (we hope!)
