Default squeeze-updates during Squeeze installation

(Moving to debian-boot@lists.debian.org where it's more appropriate)

I also saw this error message but only under special circumstances. I
believe when I installed from a DVD and selected to not use a mirror.

It's still somewhat disturbing. Maybe we should keep an empty "stable"
archive on volatile.debian.org in the mean time.

Cheers,

I have just read a Debian 6 review[0] with the same (and other)
suggestion for improvement in the installer. Maybe someone wants to take
a look.

I kind of remember having seen a prompt for volatile in the graphical
installer, but noticed that there was squeeze-update in the sources.list
at the end, somehow.

Hope this helps.

Yes, this is how to run into this error.

Either that or how possible would to it be to make some kind of redirection?

I agree, changes could definitely be made on the installer.
