Bug#401652: base-installer: mechanism to preseed kernel selection
as best i can see, there is no way to select a kernel using debconf
base-installer base-installer/kernel/which-kernel select linux-image-vserver-686
base-installer base-installer/kernel/image string linux-image-vserver-686
base-installer base-installer/kernel/image-2.6 string linux-image-vserver-686
but alas, no luck.
reading base-installer.postinst (though not certain i fully understand
it), it seems like the pick_kernel function just overwrites these
debconf values based one what it detects as available and preferred.
if i exclude all other kernels from the CD image, it selects the
linux-image-vserve-2.6.17-2-vserver-686 image, and it installs fine.
though even then, i'd rather have the more generic meta-package
could the postinst be written to not override a preseeded value? if not,
could another question be added that overrides the kernel selection
or am i missing something?
