I'm trying to install gNewsense mips port on my Yeeloong 8089B laptop. I connected the laptop and my NAT router with a LAN cable and followed
the instructions described in The Debian
installer showed up and configured the network device via DHCP
successfully, but it failed when it tried to download files from the
mirror. I could not change the mirror from which to download files,
because the download of the file that contains the list of all the
available mirrors failed too.

I think my NAT router is working properly since I can download files on
the Internet from other computers connected to the router.

What is wrong with my installation process?

I would appreciate your help.


Thanks for trying gNewSense on your Yeeloong. I know that some people (including me) had to retry a few times before it installed successfully. For me it repeatedly got stuck around 90 %. Maybe you just need to try a few times more.

Btw, gNewSense on the Yeeloong is still mostly being discussed on the gnewsense-dev mailing list. You might be able to get more answers there.
