Source code for Debian Installation


As we know that when we install debian sarge, it uses ncurses library to show the dialog boxes which help us to install/configure Debian.

Does anyone know where in the ISO CD can I find the source code for that installation script?

Binary and source CDs are separate. You'll need to find the correct source cd, or go to the repository. The source file(s) should be in here:
ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/

HTH,

Thanks. I understand what you are saying. How can I find where is the source code for the Debian Installation script. What flle name is it? How can I search in the source repository.

Sorry, I am still not able to find the source code for the installation script. Is it just a single file?

thanks

Looks like it is in a subversion repository here that is linked on the page I posted above so if you know how to use one of these your good to go.
