Title: debian-installer don’t load preseed/run script

Package: debian-installer
Version: shipped with etch initial release


I guess I found a bug in the debian installer concerning the preseed/run command.
Using a netinstall i386 Etch CD I enter at the command prompt :

Press F1 for help, or ENTER to boot : auto url="" interface=eth0

Then installation start up to a message standing :

"The file needed for preconfiguration could not be retrieved from The installation will proceed in
on-automated mode"

But if I ALT/CTRL/F2 and enter wget the file actually loads.

In preseed.cfg the directive is :

d-i preseed/run string killdhcp.sh

If I try to wget or load the file in a browser I succeed too.

And d-i does do that.

I was not able the reprodure the original bug.  I did not need to add
additional scripting for setting execute permissions.

I still wonder what triggered the message
 "The file needed for preconfiguration could not be retrieved from The installation will proceed in 
  non-automated mode"
but it works for me.
