The "kmuto installer" was mentioned earlier on the list.

Do You know how safe it is?

What do you mean? The "kmuto installer" is an installer for Debian
stable releases with up-to-date kernels provided by a Debian developer.

It is save. We assure you. The kumto installer is the main alternative
debian installer and is widely used throughout the debian community.
Loads of people use it and is considered safe.


Thanks

Good day.

Is it possible to obtain a cd image of the stable Debian w/ a kernel
supporting ext4 so that I can install it on the FS and then boot from
the HDD?



Isn't the Stable kernel too old to have a stable ext4 implementation?

Yes it is. That's why I suggested the kmuto installer.

Are You speaking about this images <http://kmuto.jp/debian/d-i/> ?

If not then why do speak about the installer?

I need not a special installer. I need a stable installable CD that is
able to install on ext4 (on HDD). I know I need more recent kernel for
that that current stable Debian does not contain, therefore I ask is
there a way for me have stable Debian be installed on ext4 or I have to
try to live until the day the 6th version comes?

This sure looks like it might be a Live CD:

Yes, you do.

Such an installation CD does _NOT_ exist in official Debian software.

Yes, there is a way, and it is one of the ISO images at the link above which
you summarily discounted out of hand. Here is the EXT4 information relating
to that ISO (far down the page) that you apparently didn't read:


FAQ (for Lenny)

How to use ext4?
Since 0627 image, my d-i image supports new filesystem, ext4. You can
choose ext4 at partition manager (partman) screen. But be careful, ext4 isn't
mature yet. Don't use it for a production system. And I strongly recommend to
NOT USE EXT4 FOR YOUR BOOT PARTITION.
Even though, I want to use ext4 for my boot (root) filesystem!
Sigh. To separate /boot from the root partition and to use ext3 for /boot
is really recommended solution. If you can't agree this idea, here is a
summary to use ext4 for boot partition. 1. Use the expert mode. 2. Choose
grub-pc instead of legacy grub (you'll be asked in expert mode). 3. Append
boot parameter "rootfstype=ext4" at Grub screen.

I guess it is, so no other official ways to go?
