Package: debian-installer
Severity: important

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
(indicating Etch).

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.

done, thanks for notifying. BTW, you can also close bugs yourself :-)
