Re: I created yet another woody coaster


        Thanks to ah and doogie, I now have a recipe for people to
  avoid creating coasters. Simply use debbootstrap to get the list of
  base packages and ensure they exist in your local mirror.


__> apt-get --download-only install $(/usr/sbin/debootstrap --print-debs \
                                        --arch i386 woody)
__> apt-move update
__> apt-ftparchive generate /etc/apt/archive.conf >& /var/log/archive.log 
__> cd /root/release; make 
 Accidents cause History.  If Sigismund Unbuckle had taken a walk in
 1426 and met Wat Tyler, the Peasant's Revolt would never have
 happened and the motor car would not have been invented until 2026,
 which would have meant that all the oil could have been used for
 lamps, thus saving the electric light bulb and the whale, and nobody
 would have caught Moby Dick or Billy Budd. Mike Harding, "The
 Armchair Anarchist's Almanac"
