Source for net install

Postby wrmelgaard » 2019-09-03 20:32

The Buster net install iso has bugs. Where can I find the source package such that I can take a shot at debugging it?

You are very vague, so we cannot really know what you are talking about. However, you might want to look at the list of existing bugs here:
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgrepo ... ist=stable
somebody might be working on them already

I know precisely what the bug is. I posted it. A month ago.
This is the "programming" board. I am looking for the source code of the install package so that I can debug it.

I'm sorry, but I have not seen that post that you made a month ago. Also, in your earlier post you used the plural form, so I was under the impression that you have several possible problems in mind.

I wonder if you have already found the source during the passed month?

might this be what you are looking for:
https://salsa.debian.org/installer-team ... installer/

May I inquire what branch this bug pertains to? Do you have a PR in written?

That link is exactly what I am looking for.
I am specifically interested in bug # 934383. I am a retired engineer, and this will be my first foray into debugging a package. Wish me luck.

Ok, I see. Apparently that is related to not having the closed sourced firmware present, but should nevertheless not fail like that.

Good luck!
