First, thanks for an AMAZINGLY easy installation of SF.  I had been
working with SF-Genericinst, and it had too many problems for me, as
well as some bugs.  I am telling others to use debian-sf instead. :)

I tried to do a 2.6.0+8 install on a clean Woody machine, and ran into
the same LDAP problems.  Here is what steps I followed:

1. Install Woody (base only - didn't run dselect, etc. after base)
2. Added Christian's 2.6 packages line to my sources.list
3. Did an apt-get update; apt-get install sourceforge
4. Many packages downloaded and the SF install failed at the same point
as Soon-Son Kwon (at adding entries to LDAP)
5. Followed Soon-Son Kwon's instructions by commenting out and re-ran the installation - completed successfully
6. Did the purge; reset ; configure

Now, everything is up and running.  I am doing testing right now.  It
seems like everything is working so far, with the exception of DNS (yes,
I waited for the hourly update, but it hasn't updated yet).

So, there are two things I wanted to mention.  First, if you perform an
install on a _clean_ machine, the LDAP step fails for whatever reason.
If I follow the instructions from Soon-Son Kwon, things work fine.
Second, any ideas why DNS is having problems?  Did I configure it

Thanks again.  I'll keep doing clean installs (reinstalling Woody and
then sourceforge, so you can have better testing against a "clean"
install to knock out problems with 2.6.0+.

Don't forget that 2.6 is experimental and that smooth upgrade is not 
complete. There are still some diff in table between 2.5+upgrade and 2.6
We don't recommend the use of 2.6 for anything else than experiments
