Subject: cross-install fails from Fedora Core 3
Package: install
Severity: normal

*** Please type your report below this line ***
Following the directions
http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/ch-preparing.en.html#s-linux-upgrade
for a cross-install from a running Fedora Core 3 system in order to
create a Debian woody [stable] system on another partition, did not work for me.
I had a spare 6GB partition hda7 for ext3 root, was using a 1GB swap
partition under Fedora Core, and hda1 was a 150MB ext3 /boot.

Things worked until section 3.7.5.1 Mount Partitions.  I was chroot'ed
into /mnt/debinst on /dev/hda7, and had the new /etc/fstab setup correctly.
But "mount -a" and trying individual mounts for hda1 and hda7 failed
with messages that the filesystems were already mounted or busy.
Those filesystem were already mounted under Fedora Core (before the
chroot).

I ignored the problem with mount, and kept going until Section
3.7.5.4 Configure Timezone, Users, and APT.  Running
/usr/sbin/base-config, I saw
-----
# /usr/sbin/base-config
Terminated
# apt-cache search kernel-image
Segmentation fault
-----
and at this point I decided to give up.  Later, I succeeded installing
sarge using Network CD-ROM bootstrap.

I'm closing these bugs because install-doc was the documentation for the
boot-floppies, which have reached end of life.

Current installation documentation is in the debian-installer-manual
package. If you think that your documentation issue is still not
adequately covered in the sarge installer manual, please reopen your bug
report and reassign it to debian-installer-manual.
