jigdo sid missing files
Sorry if this is a problem oft repeated, and as i do not subscribe to this
list i am not certain how i expect to get an answer but:
For the past few weeks, my attempts to make a new jigdo-lite image of sid
have failed with reported missing files.
Against a previous Sid I had fairly old, i kept getting such a report, so I
tried from scratch and here is the error message at the end of the run:
Downloaded: 0 bytes in 0 files
Skipping object `sid-i386-1.iso.tmpdir' (No such file or directory)
Found 0 of the 115 files required by the template
Copied input files to temporary file `sid-i386-1.iso.tmp' -
repeat command and supply more files to continue
Aaargh - 115 files could not be downloaded. This should not
happen! Depending on the problem, it may help to retry downloading
the missing files.
Also, you could try changing to another Debian or Non-US server,
in case the one you used is out of sync.
However, if all the files downloaded without errors and you
still get this message, it means that the files changed on the
server, so the image cannot be generated.
As a last resort, you could try to complete the CD image download
by fetching the remaining data with rsync.
Press Return to retry downloading the missing files.
Press Ctrl-C to abort. (If you re-run jigdo-lite later, it will
resume from here, the downloaded data is not lost if you press
As said this has happened over a period of a number of weeks.
My .jigdo-lite file is as follows:
wgetOpts='--passive-ftp --dot-style=mega --continue --timeout=30'
i had tried previously with:
nonusMirror='deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US sid/non-US'
and i guess tomorrow i will try again without non-us as all i want is a cd
using jigdo-lite from which to start a net install
(and which includes reiserfs)
Thanks in advance.
