Installing from the netinst CD on a PowerMac G4, I get the following error:

[!!] Install the base system
Debootstrap Error
Invalid Release file: no entry for main/binary-powerpc/Packages.

This is the netinst CD from:

cdimage.debian.org:cdimage/daily-builds/sid_d-i/20061208-1/powerpc/ iso-cd

Trying 130.239.18.138...
-rw-r--r--    1 1002     1002          143 Dec 08 10:34 MD5SUMS

cdimage.debian.org is an alias for ftp.acc.umu.se.
ftp.acc.umu.se has address 130.239.18.159
ftp.acc.umu.se has address 130.239.18.138
ftp.acc.umu.se has address 130.239.18.158



Curiously enough, if I use the Businesscard CD, I do not get this error.

Any thoughts?

Rick

Bug fixed. Apologies, it was caused by the major debian-cd merge at
the end of last week - I missed a couple of details in the noise. Fix
checked in to debian-cd svn, and new dailies are building right now
with the fix applied.

#402219 (mentioned there) *is* this problem again, so I'm closing that
too with this mail. #401586 looks different altogether, though...
