Bug#595903: apt-setup: Fail to set up DVD as APT source during installation

Package:  apt-setup
Version:  1:0.46
Severity: grave
User:     debian-edu@lists.debian.org
UserTags: debian-edu

I ran into this with the daily built DVD for Debian Edu.  The
installation fail because the installer is unable to find the packages
it should install in the pre-pkgsel step.  The reason is that the
sources.list file have no valid APT sources, not even the installation

I tracked it further down to apt-setup and the 40cdrom script, which
fail to get the DVD added as a source.  The reason seem to be that
'apt-cdrom add' fail because /sys/ is not mounted when it is called.

I assume this happen with the Debian DVD too, and set the severity to

I am not quite sure how to fix this properly, but using in-target
instead of chroot when running 'apt-cdrom add' might be a solution.

The daily built Debian Edu DVD can be fetched from
<URL: http://ftp.skolelinux.org/cd-squeeze-test-dvd/ > (or ftp and
rsync) if you want to test this yourself.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
