I'm currently using my RaQ2+ as an "unstable" router (kernel not fixed)
due to various problems with my hard drive I would need to reinstall this
"half functional" machine.
My question is: right now it's being used as my router (eth0 = lan, eth1
dsl modem) and since I have to reinstall it, is there any way during the
setup process that I can have it configure an internet access before
to fetch the packages and all from the repository?
I guess your Internet access works via PPPOE, this would mean you need
a complete base installation before you can set up the PPPOE connection.
The .debs needed for a base installation are the same as the ones
included on the 100 MB "netinst" installer ISO. A while ago I wrote
a script which creates a minimal partial mirror sufficient for a base
installation, available from the d-i SVN:
so basically I would need to run this script on my RaQ2 used to nfsroot, and
then use that machine as a source for APT during the installation on my
RaQ2+ with the content that it would've downloaded?
Just making sure, because when this thing goes, there's no more
smtp,pop3,http, etc etc :)
