Problems: Questions on mini-20110308.iso


I've started to write down the steps to install Debian GNU/Hurd as
promised some time ago (up to and including X-windows) under Qemu, using
the Debian installer in mini-20110308.iso, and ran into a set of

After the successful install (including setting up the network with
dhcp) the final step before reboot fails:

Install GRUB bootloader on MBR: Yes
(when rebooting)
/hurd/init: Crashing system; essential task auth died
init: notifying ext2fs /dev of shutdown: notifying pfinet ... notifying
ext2fs gunzip:device:rd0 of shutdown

Reboot happens after a timeout, so it was not possible to catch all

Restarting from the hard disk no network was set up, maybe dhcp-client
should be called again to get it working??

manually setting up the network with:
settrans -afg /servers/socket/2 /hurd/pfinet -i eth0 -a -m -g

enabled the network again. However, now ssh-server failed to start. A
second try without ssh-server chosen resulted the same problems:

apt-get install random-egd openssh-server

Now openssh fails to start, giving debug output
from ../sysdeps/posix/getaddrinfo.c:2297 assertion error from glibc (too
much to copy manually from the mach terminal, sorry).

libc0.3 version is 2.11.2-13 with the fixed libc. 

Is the fixed pfinet included in mini-20110308.iso??
Something is definitely wrong here, what?

Maybe these problems are the similar as for David Hiran Watson with
Virtualbox. In the other hand, he has problems installing the base
system, which was not the case for me. I don't know anything of dchp
support using Virtualbox, have not tried it yet.
