I'm trying to create a Vagrant Basebox for Debian Lenny.
The first step in this process is creating a VM Guest in Virtualbox. I've created a new VM image and begun installation of Debian Lenny using the netinst image.
However, the VM refuses to connect to the network.
My Ubuntu host has a standard ethernet network connection with full internet access.
After configuring the root and non-root users, the non-GUI installer prompts me to select a mirror for downloading additional packages.
Regardless of the mirror seleceted, the following message is displayed:
Bad archive mirror The specified Debian archive mirror is either not available, or does not hae a valid Release file on it. Please try a different mirror.
I have tried 2 network configurations for the VM Guest by right-clicking on the guest item listed in VirtualBox Manager -> Settings -> Network. The first is the default configuration, this being:
Attached to: NAT
The second was:
Attached to: Bridged Adapter Name: eth0 Promiscuous Mode: Deny
Neither has any effect.
I chose to continue the installation anyway, so am now in the Lenny guest OS.
Is there a simple fix to enable networking for this VM?
Sincere thanks for your time.
