backport debian-installer gets a power of cdimage.debian.org

With Steve's kind help, I got a place to put my backport debian-installer images at Debian official CD host cdimage.debian.org.

Although http://kmuto.jp/debian/d-i/ remains as the site of primary information, you can download or rsync every files from http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/backports/ directly also.

Please DO NOT fill any bugs about these images to Debian BTS. They are unofficial, even are provided by Debian official host ;-P

Squeeze amd64 d-i images with Linux kernel 2.6.38.bpo

This is first release of backported Debian-installer for Debian GNU/Linux 6.0, Squeeze. You can download it from the place.

  • Debian 6.0.1 based
  • Kernel 2.6.38 (bpo.2)

Update #1: I updated images, as revision 0614. It is based on Debian 6.0.1 + firmware netinst. So, you don't need to make a memory stick to insert additional firmwares. Plus, this image includes new DHCP client which is fixed an interacting problem with some DHCP servers.

Notice: This ISO image doesn't include non-free firmware. You can take it from Debian official page (please see Debian squeeze installation information and look Section 2.2, Installation Guide). WPA support isn't implemented yet.

Enjoy!
