Bug#279127: debootstrap dependencies



I think that section C.4.2. _Install debootstrap_ should mention an
additional dependency for debootstrap: libc6 (at least version 2.3.x).

I got an error message on a DeLi Linux system (http://www.delilinux.de/)
which I tried to run debootstrap from.
After installing wget and ar, I unpacked debootstrap deb by hand and ran
debootstrap: it complained with an error message about an unresolved
symbol (GLIBC2.3, if I recall correctly, but I'm not sure, since
unfortunately I forgot to write it down... sorry!).
The DeLi Linux system comes with glibc version 2.1.x.


For the record, I wiped the DeLi Linux system out and installed DSL
(http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/) that comes with glibc 2.3.x ...

Another issue seems to affect section C.4.4.1. _Mount partitions_:
it suggests to mount the proc virtual filesystem with the command

  # mount -t proc proc /proc

from within the chroot environment.
I tried, but got an empty /proc.
And consequently I could not complete the kernel-image package
installation (as outlined in section C.4.5. _Install a kernel_):
mkinitrd failed complaining it couldn't find any /dev/fd or
/proc/self/fd/ and thus the postinst exited with errors.
The package was left unconfigured...

To work around this issue, I had to mount the proc filesystem from
*outside* the chroot environment, as in

  # mount -t proc proc /mnt/debinst/proc

After that, /proc looked non-empty from within the chroot environment
too, and I could finish the kernel-image package set up.
