Debian/NSLU2 installer currently broken
- I'm afraid I have to announce that the Debian/NSLU2 installer image is
currently broken. When Debian 4.0 (etch) got updated a few days ago
for its first point release (4.0r1), the kernel images got updated on
all architectures. Unfortunately, the package that points to the
latest kernel image did not get updated on ARM, which means that the
installer tries to install the old kernel image (which is no longer
available) and fails.
This will be fixed in the next point release (4.0r2). There is no
plan yet as to when this will happen but hopefully soon because there
was another problem with r1 that needs to be addressed. In the
meantime, people who wish to install Debian on the NSLU2 can use the
manual method described at
Note that this problem does not affect existing users of Debian on
NSLU2, but only new installations. I will write another note when
4.0r2 is out and new installations are possible again.
Apologies for this inconvenience.
