Bug#216756: busybox-cvs udeb: /linuxrc is obsolete and breaks d-i
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-10-20
Justification: breaks unrelated software
/linuxrc only works in some special cases that can't be used inn all
cases on all architectures and is obsolete since pivot_root was
invented. Because of that the rootskel udeb of debian-install no
longer provides a /linux that would override the busybox /linuxrc.
In cases that do support /linuxrx that can lead to busybox being
started instead of the start script for debian-installer, which in
turn leads to the filesystem running out of space or being unwriteable
later in the d-i process.
Please do remove /linuxrc.
