Hello Richard,

That's right ;-) I've build the sarge ones too, but there was no

Neither - in midst of the progress there is a message like 9987 of
10000 files found required by the template. After that I am asked for
a mirror to get the files from.

For me us.cdimage.debian.org works too ;-) jigdo get the missing files
and completes the image.

But I was wondering why I can't build a cd-image directly from my
local mirror here, but if there are some (13?) packages that are not
present in Debians main-archive that is the solution. But now I am
starting to ask me why these packages are not inside the normal
archive, whence they are needed for a current stable release? Some
packages are also in different versions in the archive, so why not
these (as I can see this packages contain docs).


PS: Thank you for jigdo ;-) It is a great tool! And geetings from the
"north" as I am a CS student at TU Clausthal...
