Key expiry breaks most etch RC1 images

February 10th, 2007

The expiry of the Debian archive's signing key for 2006 has broken most of the installation media from etch RC1. The only images that should remain usable are the full installation CDs and DVDs, but only if used without a network mirror.

Final preparations have begun for the second release candidate of the Debian Installer for Etch, and we hope to get RC2 out as soon as possible to fix this.

In the meantime, if you need to use one of the other installation methods, use the daily or weekly built images. This will also help us with pre-release testing for RC2, so please file installation reports!
