I am disapointed. I want to help, finding errors and all I get is a
short note, that "something" is wrong. Please be serious, reopen the
report, it is not solved. Did you try it yourself? Tell me what infos
do you need?
It is reproducable and it's just whith:
$ fakeroot -s fakechroot.save \
fakechroot /usr/sbin/debootstrap --variant=fakechroot \
sid /sid http://ftp.ch.debian.org/debian/
It works (under rooot) with:
- # debootstrap sid /sid http://ftp.ch.debian.org/debian/
- # debootstrap --variant=minbase sid /sid
- # debootstrap --variant=buildd sid /sid
(so it's not a sid-problem or a target problem).
I also tried it to start fakeroot under root:
- # fakechroot /usr/sbin/debootstrap --variant=fakechroot sid /sid
The process aborted with the same message.
I also chrooted into it and entered the command:
$ sudo chroot /sid
# dpkg --force-depends --install
