dondelelcaroLangly1: that's the sarge installer. It's quite likely that whatever bug you're seeing has been fixed long ago
Langly1: partition by hand, or if you want to see if the bug still exists, use the etch rc2 installer.
Langly1downloaded the top installer in current
what SHOULD I be using?
streunerchascon: what do you use, debootstrap?
dondelelcaroLangly1: if you want to install sarge, you should use what you've got. If you want to test the installer for etch, use the etch rc2 installer.

mezmiroWhen upgrading from Sarge to Etch, why do some packages get held back?
amphichascon: alt-sysrq-s alt-sysrq-u alt-sysrq-b ;)
mezmiroI have a list of maybe 40 packages that are being held back.
amphimezmiro: probably because they need to install new dependencies
streunermezmiro: depends cannot be satisfied or new packages would installed...

dpkgrun dselect --expert. hit the down arrow once, then hit enter a lot. problem solved. (if the packages are available and/or scripts not borked), or eg, basically, DON'T edit sources, DON'T select anything, just go to option 1 (update sources) and JUST HIT ENTER a lot until it exits.. you may have to hit y or n somewhere though.
mezmirohmm..so don't edit sources..does that mean don't edit sources.list?
chasconamphi: another hard reboot?
streunermezmiro: well, it wouldn't hurt to show us your sources.list in paster bot
!paste
dpkgpaste is probably Do NOT paste into the channel. Use http://channels.debian.net/paste on FreeNode and http://channels.debian.net/paste2/ on OFTC

dpkgkeram, you want to go to http://www.debian.org/releases/sarge/debian-installer/ or http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/ if you've got hardware that the 3.1r3 installer doesn't support - for your own good, and everyone else's.
OmnipotentEntityI just installed a 32-bit chroot and I don't have name resolution on that chroot, what package do I need to install to gain the ability to turn http://http.us.debian.org into an IP?
streunerkeram: use the second URL (etch/testing) installers
mezmirohttp://channels.debian.net/paste/5748
keramstreuner, yeah i wanted to install with etch
streunerok, use the second URL then
mezmiroI just edited my sources.list and did an apt-get update, I haven't done the apt-get upgrade yet.
streunerthere are stable ones and beta installers
IIRC
DawnLightwhoa
keramstreuner, isnt etch the same as testing?
streuneryes
chasconyes, but I'm just reading Alt-SysRq-B is like hard reboting but then again Alt-SysRq-S and Alt-SysRq-U syncs undaved buffers so it's better. Thanks, I'm unused to these non-ppc key combinations
dob1hi, i have some files, the dimension of them is more than 5gb (they are image of some partition), what is a simple way to backup them on dvd?
keramstreuner, should ig et the weekly built or the daily?
