etch beta 2 amd64 netinstall broken?


I've set up a memory stick with etch beta 2 installers on it... i386 installer works fine for beta 1 and beta 2 of etch

for amd 64, it was fine for beta 1, but for beta 2 it's been broken. It's not my config of syslinux, as that hasn't changed... all I've done is replaces the beta 1 files with beta 2 files...

this is the error I get...

this is where I got the files:

i386:
beta1:http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/dist...ller/i386/2.6/
beta2:http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/dist...ller/i386/2.6/

amd64:
beta1:http://amd64.debian.net/debian-amd64...staller/amd64/
beta2:http://amd64.debian.net/debian-amd64...staller/amd64/

See this thread.

Actually, this is a difficult time to get a clean dist-upgrade to Etch/AMD64 since it is still in a state of flux between official and unofficial repositories. If you really need a system NOW, I would get the base install, then do a dist-upgrade to Sid using the official repos. Sid is completely moved over, and I think the xorg issues have been cleared up. Once you have a complete Sid system, change your sources.list back to testing, and wait for it to catch up.

hmm, I hadn't thought about that... Trouble is I want the 2.6.12 and up kernel because of a tv device I've got that is supported from then onwards....

You can just upgrade your kernel from Sid ... I think it's 2.6.16 now. Consider any kernel modules you may need, like video or whatever.
