Bug#624481: debian-installer: kfreebsd-i386 unstable d-i cannot fetch partman-zfs
I pulled the kfreebsd-i386 installer from here:
and i launched it in expert mode.
I looked for the partman-zfs udeb in the list of "download installer
components" but i couldn't find it.
I also tried (from the terminal):
but that failed with the usual warning about package not found (sorry,
i don't have the exact error message handy).
however, i was able to fetch the package from the web with wget,
unpack it with ar, and install it with tar, which ultimately enabled
zfs support in partman.
I'm not sure why it wasn't listed as available.
