Sargent Install problems
I've been unable to get the Sargent cd images to install. (Booting from
CD works good.)
1) Even when expert26 is selected it comes up in stupid mode.
2) From 'Debian Installer Main Menu' selecting: Check CD-ROM's
integrity, yields "... is not a valid Debian CD-ROM". (Downloaded from
ftp://ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/cd-images/debian-weekly/i386/) Other's from
Debian are pretty much the same. None work. (Woody installs but is of
no interest to me.)
3) The message screen gives something like:
anna: no such file or directory
Release is in /cdrom/dists/sargent/Release.
I need very much to get sargent (recent version of linux+GNU+....)
installed on a laptop to demo some software I'm developing. My internet
access is high-speed and can download anything I need as long as it'll
work. (Will copying /cdrom/dists/sargent/Release to /cdrom/dists
correct the problem or will I just encounter more.) I had identical
problems with the netinstall package, and sarge CD 1 and 2.
Obviously sargent should be between the // in dists//Release. Is this
an easy/quick fix? Is there a quick work around I can do myself more
quickly. (I still use dselect as a preferred install method once things
are running, but don't know much about the initial install stuff.)
Thank you very much.
