Working fine with me. "export LOCAL=1" switched on in CONF.sh
local symlinked in with "contrib", "main" etc. A full filesystem
../local/binary-all, binary-i386, source/admin, etc
Debian-cd is very fussy about checking. The .debs and Packages have to be
right. The task-* .debs need to be properly produced from scratch. You
cannot get away with modifying an existing package. I use
dpkg-scanpackages to produce the Packages file in local. I must admit I
am still have problems with the sources.
Hope this helps. Get back to me if you think I can assist.
