Yay! That did it! Thank YOU for YOUR patience.

I was a bit astonished at how much installing was required! But it all went quickly.

Hi Casey,

Could you please add lhasa to the official Fienix img? Lhasa lha is a tool for parsing LHA (.lzh) archives. I needed it for extracting the STK 0.6.2a add-on pack today.

Thanks,
Christian

Hi, lhasa is now in the repo and I'll include in the next image.
Thanks!

An excellent game called "The Battle For The Solar System - The Pandoran War" is available in the Fienix software repositories. It's a very polished space shooter with attractive graphics, nice special effects, AI teammates, and a great soundtrack, too.

I've been working on an installer based on Debian Installer but keep running into an issue. The installer boots up, detects hardware, etc. but then it reports that the CD integrity check fails. If I choose "CD integrity check" from the installer menu it will pass, but it still fails integrity check during the install process and the installer will not continue. I don't know what the difference is between the integrity check from the menu and the integrity check in the install process.

This is the method I used: https://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/Modify/CD
Fienix Release files are used instead of Debian Release files.
I modified the debootstrap package inside the installer to add a script to download packages from Fienix.
I modified the keyring package to include the Fienix gpg key.
I generated index files and md5sums.txt with apt-ftparchive.
Finally I remastered the iso with genisoimage.

Fienix cannot use a simple preseed file like MintPPC does, because Fienix does not use the Debian repository and our repository structure does not match Debian's. Does anyone have any experience with Debian installer who might be able to help out?
