thanks for trying! It looks as if the -v latest installs the "latest" debian rootfs which is Bullseye. This may have some config issues.

So please try:

> ./makesd -v latest -vr stable ci20 -r minimal

This means "latest" for everything but "stable" for the root file system. This should be Debian Stretch.

Alternatively you can replace the -r minimal by some -r http: from http://download.goldelico.com/letux-debian-rootfs/?C=M;O=D


> ./makesd -v latest -vr stable ci20 -r http://download.goldelico.com/letux-debian-rootfs/stretch-mipsel-minimal.tbz

Please let me know if that works.

BR and thanks for trying!
