Re: Adopting dpkg-ftp
Recently, dpkg-ftp was my only choice, as apt-get from slink is broken on
my nfsroot system. It is segfaulting on me when it attempts to update. I
have not submitted a bug report yet, as I am still debugging the nfsroot
installation, and have not ruled out problems with either the kernel
(which is 2.1.131, and is being upgraded to 2.2.0-pre1 today) or my nfs
server. I merely mention this because dpkg-ftp still may be a viable
alternative in a limited set of circumstances.
