  1. Bug#477354: debian-installer: fails to bootstrap because of missing gpgv

    Package: debian-installer
    Version: 40r2
    Severity: important


    I tried to install debian with this installer CD:

    debian-40r2-i386-businesscard.iso 03-Jan-2008 01:43 32M

    The GUI installer works but the default one fails bootstrap and
    complains that there is missing gpgv which is needed to verify packages.

    Thanks

    Michal

    I doubt that this is really a bug in the installer because otherwise we'd
    have had a lot more reports. Can you reproduce the error if you try again,
    preferably using a different mirror?

    If you can reproduce it, please send us the syslog for the installation
    (gzipped!).

    Can't be the number of people living in Holland. It's a bit too high for
    that. Wild guess: size of the image?

    Yes, on a second try it worked so it must have been a mirror outage.

    I was not aware the package is downlodaded from the mirror -
    logically it should not be if it is used to validate the downloaded
    packages.

    Thanks
