Package: boot-floppies
Version: 02-Apr-2002
Severity: important

While installing Debian woody from HTTP on an iBook, using either the 
powermac or new-powermac images (versions from 02-Apr-2002), the 
installation fails to read rescue.bin mounted as a loopback device and 
issue the following error:

"can't read /floppy/type.txt"

Escaping to the shell shows that /floppy is mounted, the list of files 
seems correct, but a cat on one of them gives a "read: Input/output error".

This seems similar to bug #135626 which symptom has suddenly disapeared!


See you in Barcelona.

Phew.  That's reassuring, because I wasn't really looking forward to
digging through the boot-floppies source again ;)
