The source package would be better served from http://httpredir.debian.org to reduce loads for Debian mirrors.

It's now at version 0.6.4 with md5s 2478dd2f431055878f587c665226a68a (amd64) and 9b8913af8576ba864809428bb43da3ce (i386).

Done

Could you replace build() function with package() (as you aren't building anything) and move debian-archive-keyring to optdeps? Thanks.

That update was very quick - thanks for that!

@dschauer, not tested but I think it's not needed anymore with kernel 3.1 which get a correct version string. ;)

@Scullder, I'm on arch64 and I got around the 2 digit kernel numbering by prefixing the bootstrap call with 'linux64 --uname-2.6' which makes the kernel version show up as 2.6.40 instead of 3.0. If on arch32 I assume you would use linux32 or some other equivalent command. Well, setarch is the real command.

kamui57, you can create a very simple wrapper script (for Bash or your own shell of choice) that only handles uname's -r argument and passes all other arguments to the real uname tool. You just have to make sure that your wrapper script is on PATH and called before the real uname.

I was able to successfully dist-upgrade my Lenny chroot to Squeeze with that script. Good luck. :)

I can't do anything for this, this bug is related to the kernel release which contains only 2 digits on Archlinux (3.0-ARCH), and 3 on Debian (3.0.3)
You can only bootstrap wheezy for the moment.

This package is just a few days old, maybe you're confusing cdebootstrap and cdebootstrap-static, It works on x86_64, but it has not be tested on i686. Try "yaourt -S cdebootstrap-static" and tell me if you have a problem ;)

hi, has this package become unavailable ? My yaourt cdebootstrap is today not finding it , although a couple of weeks ago another machine where I did this worked fine.
