Default d-i issues

Hi,

I downloaded the latest d-i:
http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/daily-builds/sid_d-i/arch-latest/i386/iso
-cd/debian-testing-i386-netinst.iso

and used it to install a lenny system but only with what was in the iso.

Ran into the following:

I don't want lenny, I want sid and have a sid local mirror.

The reason I don't want lenny is that it takes me 3 days to download a
lenny system and with sid a matter of seconds.

But changing the sources to sid, dist-upgrade only upgrades 4 packages
from the 138 installed.

So in attempting to install kernel-package ran into the problem with
perl: perl-base is installed but is 5.10.0-10 and perl wants 5.10.0-11.

The reason I want kernel-package is I have to roll my own kernel because
the one that comes with d-i (2.6.25-2-686) fails to give me framebuffers
so I can't see a thing with those huge 80x25 characters.

Bottomline: how do you change lenny to sid?


suite=sid in the boot prompt, or something like that, perhaps.


That doesn't appear to be a boot parameter:

^^^^^^^^^^^

My recollection is that you can choose to install Sid directly from the
businesscard installer, but I didn't think you could do it with the
netinst one.

I'm not 100% sure about this, but it's something to check.

I think you are right. Only the businesscard has the suite parameter, IIRC.
