[Very Not Unsolved] Sid: A workaround for kernel mismatch on install?

Heya folks!

I was going to play with the bl-install script on Sid but am unable to get past the commonish kernel mismatch on install.  I've waited three days and have tried three different daily builds of both the official and firmware versions and have gotten the error every time.  I've been googling, but have not found a way around it yet and was wondering if anyone had a trick up their sleeve, like maybe an ISO that packages the necessary kernel modules in the ISO.

Thanks for your time!

Re: [Very Not Unsolved] Sid: A workaround for kernel mismatch on install?

The issue is immediately after choosing language and keyboard layout, I get the following error:

I've downloaded three different builds of debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso and firmware-testing-amd64-netinst.iso over the course of three days hoping that the kernel included in the netinstall and that in the archive would fall back into sync.  So far, it has not happened and I'm going on day 4.  I wanted to know if there was a way around it short of installing Jessie and then changing the repos to follow sid.

It looks like Sid is already tracking Kernel Version 4.0 for amd64.

Re: [Very Not Unsolved] Sid: A workaround for kernel mismatch on install?

I understand that but I've been led to believe(correct me if I'm wrong) by my Googling that the daily builds are a packaged to include the same kernel as what's available in the repos.  I've had this issue in the past and it was resolved by simply waiting a day for the kernel headers and whatnot in the repos to sync with what's in the iso. I can't figure out why I've been unable to install Sid from the netinstall for 4 days now (I am downloading new builds as they become available).

Re: [Very Not Unsolved] Sid: A workaround for kernel mismatch on install?

^since the bunsen-netinstall script itself tests for the Debian version and exits if it isn't Jessie it might be better to install the proto-bunsen and then upgrade to Sid.

Or else edit that test (~line 182) out of the install script and hope for the best...
