Bug#522312: debian-installer: Lenny install image for AMD64 puts "etch" in /etc/apt/sources.list
I just downloaded the installer image for Lenny, called:
and used it to do a clean install on an AMD system. It all seemed to run
fine but at the end I found I had a hybrid Lenny/Etch system. The kernel
was 2.6.26 (indicating Lenny) but the version of OpenOffice.org was 2.0
Investigating /etc/apt/sources.list I found that the embedded release name
was "etch" where it should have been "lenny", meaning that I seemed to have
got a Lenny base system with Etch used for everything else.
Editing /etc/apt/sources.list to change the system to lenny and then doing
an "apt-get dist-upgrade" seems to have cured it.
The only slightly odd thing which I did during the installation was to use
a local Debian mirror (which carries Etch, Lenny and Squeeze) instead of
a public one.
