Touch wood! After a couple of abortive attempts due to finger trouble
and some strange loop the partitioner got into wanting to change
partition tables but not format filesystems I seem to have created my
filesystems and am in to the "Installing the Base System" phase now.
So it does seem to work
To be clear, I downloaded the sid .deb for this package and extracted
the libblkid.so.1.1.0 file in it and copied into the root directory of
the installation usb stick I had created earlier
I booted up the installer and got to the part where it wanted to
partition the disks. I then used ALT f2 to get another console
The original media was mounted on /hd-media, so I just copied it across
from there are put it in the /lib directory
I then removed the libblkid.so.1 file in that directory and symlinked
that file instead to the new file I just copied in.
I then went back to the installation (using ALT f1) and selected <GO
BACK> and then re-entered through the "Detect Disks" phase (I am not
sure it is necessary, but I was playing it safe).
