Updated choose-mirror will be available with the next repo update. Setting to postponed until I release 3.1.

I used the amd64 netinstall expert installer, made it fail to get files from the mirror by disabling the network connection during the choose mirror stage. Installer asks for a Debian mirror choice only if it cannot access the gNewSense mirror.

I've installed several times since this bug was reported and I haven't seen this yet. Please tell me which installer image you used and the steps to reproduce this.

I can verify this. I installed gNewSense yesterday, and found I only had gnewsense security-updates and the the main debian repositories for internet sources in /etc/apt/sources.list. The debian mirrors, of course, didn't have packages for gNewSense 3.

With some help from the IRC community, I found the archive.gnewsense.org sources and added them. (I had trouble with the US mirror.)

choose-mirrors is not modified in gNewSense, it might be responsible for this.
