DEBIAN 1.2 DISKETTE PROBLEMS UPDATE
Okay, here is what I have learned...
The Debian 1.2 Disk release version is broken.
There is no ftp or dpkg-ftp program installed to your machine if you get all
the Disks and do a fresh install. Basically you are screwed :(
Dselect will not work because there is no ftp.
Nobody understands what the problem is because everybody upgraded from a
previous version, so they already had all the files they needed.
I post this in order to save others in the same boat all the frustration and
headaches I have gone through in wanting to get Debian. Many thanks to
everyone who wrote me personally and helped me figure all this out! :)
I see that there is a Debian 1.2.1 on the site now, so I am going to give it
a try. I assume that I griped enough, then :)
If not, where can I get 1.1? Apparently it worked from disks on a clean
Also, is there another list I need to be on to get announcements about new
releases / fixes, etc? I would not have known about 1.2.1 if I hadn't
noticed it while looking for 1.1 disks...
