      Hm... I am on git 1.4.4.4. I do have a resonable network connection
      (no drops etc., .5 MBPS) and the failure happens when setup is about
      20-25% indexing complete. I cant seem to find a newer version of git.
      apt-get cant find it. I have to look for it manually I guess. I am
      running Debian 4.0 Etch on CoLinux.

      I think you need a more recent version of git . Mine is: slug@debian:~$ cat /etc/debian_version lenny/sid slug@debian:~$ git --version git version 1.6.0.4

        I think you need a more recent version of "git". Mine is:

        slug@debian:~$ cat /etc/debian_version
        lenny/sid
        slug@debian:~$ git --version
        git version 1.6.0.4
        slug@debian:~$

          Ah, just noticed that you are using colinux, like me. Got the git problem too. I started by installing a raw git tarball, then I noticed that upgrading to debian unstable (which is stable enough to build a linux distro) was a more convenient solution to get the right package versions.

          Also note that you will need a *huge* disk image for colinux to build more than the simple "<osname>-image" :)
