Bug#618648: [debian-installer] mipsel 'malta' initrd does not contain the sha1sum program

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20110106+b1
Severity: normal

The initrd [1] dated 09 Dec 2010 does not seem to contain the 'sha1sum'
program. Because of this, after downloading Packages.gz it fails, saying that
the package list is corrupt. Switching to the log console (Alt+F4) shows that
in reality the problem is "sha1sum: file not found".

This can be solved by downloading the sha1sum binary for mipsel (manually
unpacked from the coreutils package) while still booted into the installer:

  cd /bin/
  wget http://somewhere/somedir/sha1sum
  chmod +x sha1sum

after which the installation proceeds successfully.

The issue may also present in initrds other than the one referenced here.
