Booted via serial console with command:
  bootp(): append="console=ttyS0,38400 BOOT_DEBUG=1"

I had the machine connected to a LAN hosting apache serving all required
files from DVD debian-testing-mips-DVD-1. When setting up the local
mirror and trying to go further I got this error:

  x                                                                         x   

because the dvd image is missing the "Release.gpg" file. I checked that
at least "Release" file is available. I really don't know how to
continue the installation.

I downloaded the new testing image (dated 20081215) but i found the same
problem: "dists/lenny/Release.gpg" is still missing.

Any hint?
