First try on Hurd-H4-CD1 jigdo files
Beeing bored yesterday I tried to create a jigdo file set for the first
of the four Debian GNU/Hurd H4 snapshot CDs.
That's what I did and the problems I had:
I downloaded jigdo 0.6.6 from
I fetched the first CD from
The image was mounted loopback to hurd-image in the jigdo dir.
Than I built the jigdo files with
./jigdo-file mt hurd-data/ --image=hurd-H4-CD1.iso --label Debian= --uri
I'm not clear about the label Debian. I saw it in the Debian jigdo
files, so I set it. Nevertheless it was recognised by jigdo-lite.
I had to correct the Template entry in the Image section to match the
actual location. Is there a way to get this right from command line?
The .jigdo file can be found at
Unfortunately the files worked only partly:
381 packages could not be found on the mirrors. They seem to me some
special packages not official distributed by Debian. I don't know if
this files are not existant any more or if I could get them from some
other special server like alpha.gnu.org. I tried alpha, but the
directory structure did not match and I had no time to investigate this
yet. Has anyone an idea how to get around this problem? Phil, where do
you get your packages from?
Until now, the jigdo files are quite useless, as this 381 files are
I think it would be a great benefit to get this distribution system
working. E.g. for me downloading from my university is of course much
faster and produces not muich external traffic, so I make the network
admins less unhappy :-)
Any help would be appreciated!
