I didn't see this tread until today, but this weekend I was doing an
install and had the same recursive loop on a standard pentium 166. I
downloaded the floppy disks from the same place as the other guy:
-rw-rw-r-- 3 debian debian 1308 Apr 1 08:18 README.txt
-rw-rw-r-- 1 debian debian 1474560 Apr 1 08:17 driver-1.bin
-rw-rw-r-- 1 debian debian 1474560 Apr 1 08:17 driver-2.bin
-rw-rw-r-- 1 debian debian 1474560 Apr 1 08:17 driver-3.bin
-rw-rw-r-- 1 debian debian 1474560 Apr 1 08:17 driver-4.bin
-rw-rw-r-- 3 debian debian 16895 Apr 1 08:18 kernel-config
-rw-rw-r-- 1 debian debian 1474560 Apr 1 08:17 rescue.bin
-rw-rw-r-- 1 debian debian 1474560 Apr 1 08:17 root.bin
I'd try the incoming floppy images (where are they?) as suggested and
inform back to you about it. But the images still seemed bad in Sunday
as far as I can tell. I killed the install from the other shell and
just finished the install by apt-get'ing the packages I needed so all
was well in the end.
Since you said: "Well I can't do anything without a debug log. Set
DEBCONF_DEBUG=. and reproduce it, log output."
How does one go about setting that? Must I rebuild the installer or just
sent it as an env var or pass in kernel command line?
