I ran your script on this image-
Debian GNU/Linux testing _Wheezy_ - Official Snapshot amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20120905-09:20]
after I changed the sources.list to sid and ran apt-get dist-upgrade.
Your cb-netinstall.tar.gz created this sources.list (I commented out the wheezy entries in your extra_repos file as you can see in the 2 stanzas your script added below.)
## Assuming "main" repositories have already been added
## by the Debian netinstall, and best mirror chosen.
#deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy contrib non-free
##deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy contrib non-free
edit: forgot to mention as a precaution I changed your sysfiles1/etc/apt/preferences file to be:
Pin: release a=waldorf
Pin: release a=sid
Everything was perfect except for one small hiccup re: missing geode xorg driver when it checked the default files, but the script handled it gracefully. Video, sound, network, thunar drives, all works so far. Posting from iceweasel.
So now we know that an AMD64 "sid" netinst works with your script and sid repos as of 9/5 build.
64 bit yes, on AMD 4 core processor. I appreciate your design plan, just thought it might be nice to be able to print to pdf web pages from Midori for off line reference if needed for further mods to basic install. Looking forward to full version. Could this be the easy solution to the recent sid based CB variant discussion?
Your last post inspired me to try the latest version of your script for an AMD64 install. I downloaded today's Debian DAILY testing netinst AMD64 iso (2012-09-05). Followed your instructions to wget the script from dropbox, unpacked it, edited the pkgs-manual file, ran install script, grabbed a coffee, posted this from Midori after a reboot. I'm sure it was a good bit shorter than an hour from start to finish, but I forgot to note exact start time. No hangs, no errors, just minimalist goodness. I added a few of my essential apps to the pkgs-manual file, which is easy to edit before running the install script since nano is included in the base install. My only suggestion would be to include cups, cups-pdf, and optionally, system-config-printer. Thanks again for your work on this. I'm sure it will make other's life easier, as it did mine.
Just did a new AMD64 wheezy install using the dual-arch netinstall image dated 8/4 and your script. I commented out the linux-image and linux-headers in the apps-to-install file since I had a shiny new 3.2.0-3-amd64 kernel. I had to change the libc6 to i386 rather than i686 as the i686 was not available. There are 3 versions of libboost-iostreams in the apps-to-install, but only 1.49.0 was available. With those changes the script ran through with no issues. Thanks so much!
script is looking for an internet connection to version check and self update. Try running sgfxi --help and see if there is a switch to stop that. I believe it is "sgfxi ! B" or something very close to that. You will need a working internet connection for the script to download the latest driver though. I'm sure there is a work around to do everything off line, but you will still need the driver file from the vendor at a minimum.
Fast and beautiful as usual. A few quirks, Bodhi custom packages (themes, printing, file-sharing) not available in the 64 bit repo yet, but I got the themes as individual .deb files through the artwork wiki. Printing and samba, etc. I used the usual Ubuntu precise packages. For kicks I tried jockey-gtk and was surprised that it worked for ATI drivers on the supplied 64 bit 3.2.0-24-generic kernel without any fuss. Even the boot splash worked with ATI drivers, a first for me. I'm a fan of E-17 since Jeff's first releases back in 2010.
I also had trouble with the network detection hang using the 64-bit iso. The 32-bit iso installed fine. Not an issue for me since I installed the Liquorix PAE kernel. I don't do any rendering or video conversion so 32-bit PAE is good enough. Maybe later in Waldorf development an updated 64-bit kernel will not hang, but for now, please try the 32-bit.
Take a look at this thread for some good suggestions for getting the ATI/AMD drivers installed using the smxi scripts. I know it says Nvidia, but the general principles are the same. I prefer the smxi route myself. Used it on my recent CB sid upgrade with no issues on my Radeon HD 5450 card. Used it before I built this box for Nvidia drivers with no issues as well.

I tried 3.2.0 but there was no broadcom support so I had to downgrade to 2.6.39. Actually I re-installed the november release and commented out the backports repo since it was quicker than trying to find an extra lan cable in my junk drawers. This was the 64 bit version but I expect the 686 does not have the non-free drivers.
