I am trying to use the cdrom debian-installer to install Debian on an arm64 system.
I am using the weekly snapshot of testing.
- Concerning the cdrom, I use an SDcard that I mount to cdrom using:
mount /dev/mmcblk0p2 /cdrom
I get in the logs:
Jan 1 00:01:36 cdrom-detect: Detected CD with 'testing' (buster) distribution
- Ethernet I leave it not configured as the drivers are not working for this platform (on another topic I'm trying to build a kernel with the correct drivers).
So no ethernet/network connection available.
I can then go through the installation process to the point "Install base system". It fails and returns the following error:
│ Failed to determine the codename for the release.
And in the logs:
Jan 1 00:06:00 main-menu: INFO: Menu item 'bootstrap-base' selected
Jan 1 00:06:00 base-installer: error: exiting on error base-installer/no_codename
Jan 1 00:06:09 main-menu: WARNING **: Configuring 'bootstrap-base' failed with error code 1
Jan 1 00:06:09 main-menu: WARNING **: Menu item 'bootstrap-base' failed.
Any idea on what I should / could do to install the system ?
Thanks in advance,
