installation of potato doesn't work...
i set up a debian mirror and want to install potato using the nfs
exported files from my mirror.
but when selecting install within dselect there are several problems:
1.) the first time dselect aborts when installing libc6. it complains
about apt which is already installed but with a too low version
number. i could fix this with removing apt before invoking dselect.
maybe the problem is that potato uses the same file for the base system
as slink, base2_1.tgz. probably the packages from potato need newer
base packages than are contained in base2_1.tgz.
2.) the second time dselect aborts when installing libpam0g because
libpam-runtime isn't installed yet. but the deb file for
libpam-runtime is available. i fixed this by installing libpam-runtime
by hand berfore starting dselect.
i gave up at the third error.
i'm nut sure, if this is a problem with my mirror or with the unstable
did you have the same or similar problems?
are these bugs in the potato release?
can someone send me a control file for his debian mirror?
i tried a test installation of slink from my mirrored files an it
worked without problems. to me it looks like the potato installation
doesn't work right now.
