Bug#633158: debootstrap: does not generate a sarge/amd64 chroot
The unofficial sarge/amd64 release can't be installed:
sudo debootstrap --variant=buildd sarge ./base-sarge http://archive.debian.org/debian-amd64/
I: Retrieving Release
E: Invalid Release file, no entry for main/binary-amd64/Packages
I see this is the same issue as #627365: unlike the official sarge
release, the amd64 version only has md5sums and not sha1sums.
Putting force_md5 into /usr/share/debootstrap/scripts/sarge.buildd
fixed this for me.
