Bug#247506: eval syntax error during debootstrap
Just to add to this information,
I received the same error with the RC1 installer containing the base
system (100mb iso). This was on a Dell PowerEdge 2550.
The lines before the error message on vc/3 said:
No matching physical volumes found
No volume groups found
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while.
If you want more info, just let me know. Btw, I used this very same CD
to install the very same machine before, but I wanted to revise my
patitioning scheme and decided to reinstall.
