Re: working with debian cd


Sorry for the typo. it's tasksel deb and not udeb.

yes after using pkgsel udeb i can see "select and install software" in
the debian installer main menu. But when i run it, nothing happens and
exits to the debian installer main menu and cannot see the tasksel

What might go wrong? I am using the etch current installer.

tasksel udeb? AFAIK there's no such thing.

There should be a pkgsel udeb which is shown in the menu as "Select and
install software".
The tasksel _deb_ is installed by debootstrap during base system
installation in /target.
The postinst script for pkgsel calls tasksel in a chroot on /target for
the actual selection and installation of tasks.

So, any tasks you create manually should be installed in /target after or
as part of the installation of the base system, at least before pkgsel is
run. Is that maybe where the problem is?
