Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2_rev0_CDa

On Tue, 2000 Aug 29, I wrote to debian-alpha@lists.debian.org:

After posting this message, I created a 2.2rev0a CD for alpha to see
if it would act differently, but it didn't. I then created rescue,
root and driver floppies from the _generic_ images-1.44 directory on
the CD, and used them to install the base system onto the hard
disk. This system then booted beautifully (no lost interrupts) and I
was able to do everything else from the CD.

It seems (to me) that my original problem was with the alpha CD.
Something in dbootstrap on the CD seems to think that it recognizes
the UP1100 as being the Nautilus subarchitecture, although it's not. I
don't understand the system well enough to know who is doing the
recognizing, but presumably that code needs to be updated to handle
the UP1100. Perhaps it has been already but isn't on the stable

I wonder, would it not be useful to be able to override the
automatically detected subarchitecture in dbootstrap?

The referenced report, regarding installation with potato a0 CDs, is
presumed to have been fixed by now. Please let us know if this is
still a problem with current potato cds.
