Re: SFRN 4.0.1 Reiser4-enabled netboot iso/USB

Rather than continue spamming this list(s) every time I build another
Reiser4 enabled iteration of fast changing Unstable (Sid)
Debian-Installer (d-i), I will just replace the resource(s) pointed by
the links:


If you download a Reiser4-enabled netboot image and, upon installation
procedure, Debian stops midway complaining about Packages.xz
(security) not being found and/or selected -- or unable to find
selected version, it is likely the case that Unstable (Sid) Debian is
in transition state and it takes a few days for the repositories to
stabilize again.

Accordingly, as Reiser4-enabled d-i aims at a fast moving target, if
you experience issues like those described, please wait a few days and
then download the ISO image again -- as more likely I will already
have upgraded the netboot ISO image to one that works. As I refine the
image, the build (and test install) may likely be automated so as to
decrease these transition nasty surprises.
