Okay, I managed to get this image downloaded after about 6 hours (dialup
is blazingly fast!):
...and it worked! But I want to use Debian stable. This simplest "fix"
for this would be to wait until the applicable change makes it to Debian
stable. I would like to know how long that will be, or what revision of
stable would include the change. I am new to Debian and do not fully
understand the way development occurs, so I don't even know if it is
possible to answer this question. Will it be the next release
(Etch/stable)? Sarge was released in June of 2005, and releases take
2-3 years (right?), so Etch won't be released until 2007... but maybe a
revision will fix the problem.
Maybe all my facts are wrong or I'm making too many assumptions.
Perhaps someone could clarify. Essentially, when (date/version/release)
will this be fixed? Thank you!
