Bug#583551: debian-installer: mkfs.ext3 fails to run
I would strongly advise against using an "old" daily build ISO image
*and* expecting that it might still work.
I agree completely. Actually, I was also trying a netinstall with latest
ISO before reporting the bug, but after reporting I discovered that the
mirror I used did not actually have up-to-date ISO in their 'current'. So
it is completely my mistake.
Sorry for wasting your time. I guess you can close the bug. I will recheck
this in monday with fresh ISO and will let you know if it still has any
problems (I doubt it will have any...).
