This looks like the snapshot from january. There's the 2017 release from may on

Thanks, for the last few hours I've been running the netinst from ~sthibault/hurd-i386/installer/cdimage/weekly-1/ which is chugging along in semi-graphical mode (text-mode bombed with something about "unable to create /run/screen").

Installation completed after about 10 hours, during most of which time the CD LED was flickering at about 20 Hz. It barfed at something coming from the mirror and there's no working network, boot message about ifup /dev/eth0 failing.

Since the base network files etc. are there, as an experiment I told it to install openssh-server, this fetched the packages from CD at the expected speed. I have absolutely no reason to think that the off-the-shelf PC I was using has significant problems, and I'm fairly confident in the boot media and drives.

I'm afraid that there might be something broken in the installation kernel etc., and even though I'm interested I'm going to find it very hard indeed to justify more time on this :-(

CC not necessary, I'm (still) subscribed.
