Hi Adrian,

ok, works till you select a "non default" option in "Select and Install 
software". I selected "Debian desktop environment" it fails. Well after 
finishing the installation manually I also tried mplayer etc and it looks like 
the binary files are not available to apt-get.

Debian could be such a nice and actual OS for our retro hardware if we would 
just have a "decent" X driver for the most common graphics cards ffb and 
mach64/radeon. And it looks like not even someone getting paid wants to do it 
(I would love to it but due to a lack of skills I can just be a sponsor).

Cheers

Iggi

    Hi!

    I have just built and uploaded updated Debian Ports installation images.

    These images contain an updated apt-setup package which fixes the APT
    problem that occurred during installation with the 2021-09-21 images.

    I have performed a successful test installation on sparc64 and will
    perform a test on ia64 on my RX2660 later as well.

    I will provide more images updates in the following days which will
    contain more fixes such as for the hd-media installation as well as
    improvements on Apple PowerMac.

    The images can be obtained from [1].

    Thanks,
    Adrian
