The debian.blueyonder.co.uk mirror in the latest daily build (as of
03/04/07) of the etch installer is obsolete. The installer fails to
download initramfs-tools using this mirror (unauthenticated error).
Additionally, a 302 Found was encountered when manually running apt-get
update in the /target chroot. Once I changed this to
debian.virginmedia.com, as is correctly listed on the debian mirror list
(http://www.debian.org/mirror/mirrors_full), I could run apt-get update
and apt-get install initramfs-tools without problems. The installation
could not be completed as the
/etc/apt/sources.list file is overwritten on the "Install Base System" step.
This needs to be fixed before etch is released.
