Thanks Ben....

It may be my confusion (likely)... some time ago I was
- trying to use a more current kernel,
- avoid compiling it by hand,
- use Squeeze/Wheezy and gnome/mate on guests

I had real trouble getting there, and the combination of using your
mirrors (thanks for maintaining those) as well as adjusting some init
scripts for mountkernfs, mountdevsubfs and udev seemed to do the trick
(i.e., was able to use squeeze at that point, now wheezy; gnome and
mate didn't hang on the install, things work etc.).

Q: I thought to use a reasonably current kernel and Debian (Wheezy) and
avoid compiling a kernel by hand, your mirrors were a good part of that
approach. Is that not the case?
