Re: the amd-64 jidgo IMAGES are wrong!
Well I'm doing everything myself...
Looking for the missing files (e.g.
understood what was wrong.
If someone else is interested (hoping that google will find this message),
the solution is to set-up the following Debian mirror:
(or something similar, like:
http://mirror.hamakor.org.il/pub/mirrors/debian-amd64/ the mirror that I
was looking when I had the idea...)
Ok, it was obvious (but not completely, because I downloaded a huge amount
of data from "standard" paths, i.e. not in "debian-amd64"). Maybe the
"right" mirrors (with the path, I mean) could be written in a README on
In such a README (this suggestion may be valid for every image, not only
amd64) a brief gpg help may be useful too. Something like:
1) gpg --import nomefile (where nomefile should be downloaded from
http://db.debian.org/ for the user login: xxx, for me the user was "manty"
and it was a little bit difficult to find his name)
2) gpg --verify MD5SUMS.sign MD5SUMS
