Re: jigdo 0.6.7(solaris8)/woody template: this is not a template

Hello Dieter,

sorry for all the trouble you're having with jigdo-file!

jigdo didn't work until version 0.6.6 - beginning with version 0.6.7,
I thought I had managed to get it to work. It certainly works for
me... :-/

So far I have only tried compiling --without-libdb --without-gui.

ISTR I originally had the problem of unrecognized templates as well
here, but ever since the admins upgraded to gcc 3.0, it seems to have

Not to my knowledge.

I've just uploaded a static Solaris binary to my homepage as
<http://atterer.net/jigdo/jigdo-bin-0.6.7-solaris.tar.bz2> I'm
downloading the woody pre10 i386 1-nonus CD ATM, and it seems to work
fine so far.

- the downloaded files are not gone, see bottom of
  <http://www.debian.org/CD/jigdo-cd/> on how to recover them.
- the problem with jigdo-easy is known, but won't be fixed because it
  is currently unmaintained. I've posted the solution to continuing
  the download before: Specify the backup server to get the few
  missing files - for the 2.2r6 release it is:

Debian:  http://cdimage.debian.org/2.2r6-snapshot/
Non-US:  http://cdimage.debian.org/2.2r6-snapshot/non-US/

(In general, do a "zgrep -E '^(Debian|Non-US)=' foo.jigdo" to find it
out for any jigdo file.)

That's a distinct problem from the one above, and I definitely thought
it fixed as of jigdo 0.6.7! "It works for me!" :-( The md5sum problem
affected all big-endian platforms.
