Re: What mirror to use with archived jigdo DVD images ?
I'm the OP so here's a follow-up.
The archive repairs are what solved my actual problem. Following them
I was able to successfully download Squeeze DVD 1 and move the image
around for package extraction. The jigdo issues were not my difficulty.
The actual point of using this ancient release, which I hadn't
mentioned, was to get a salt-minion installed and configured into an
existing salt complex and begin rectification. After an additional 3
days wrestling with the Debian and Saltstack repositories and dealing
with apt-get package resolution difficulties, I managed to complete
that on one server and it's in the complex. My work-around is totally
brain-dead, but it circumvents the resolution issues with apt-get.
It's possible that using apt, aptitude or synaptic would have worked
better, but I don't have time to find-out yet (or perhaps an apt-get
problem; I can't really touch fundamental software on these servers
yet, most are production).
Many, many thanks to Thomas Schmitt and Phil Hands for their help.

Now: In case anyone wonders, this is exactly how linux destroyed the
old unix vendors and microsloth in the data-center. I get better
support here for free than I ever got from them for thousands. Once it
was noodled-out, it was fixed in
under 24 hours. Carry on :-)
