Installing Lenny on PowerMac?
I have a temporary need to install Lenny on a PowerMac G4 so I can run
some tests on a "fresh" installation for a user who is unable (for
various reasons) to upgrade to Squeeze at this time.
When I run the netinst installer CD all seems well until it wants to
setup sources.list. Then it dies claiming to be "unable to determine
code-name for release". (I don't remember the exact wording of the
error message, but the intent is clear.)
Is there a work-around for this that would allow me to do my testing?
Would I have better luck with a DVD, where I wouldn't need to get
anything from the network mirrors until after the installation is
