From installer/doc/devel/menu-item-numbers.txt: 7000 apt-setup pkgsel 7300 palo-installer (hppa) grub-installer (i386) yaboot-installer (powerpc/powermac_newworld, powerpc/chrp*) quik-installer (powerpc/powermac_oldworld) zipl-installer (s390) arcboot-installer (mips) delo-installer (mipsel) silo-installer (sparc) vmelilo-installer (m68k/vme*) glantank-installer (arm/iop32x) 7500 lilo-installer (i386) 7600 elilo-installer (ia64, i386) 7700 nobootloader (all) Looking at that there are two options: - change grub-installer from 7300 to 7400 - change yaboot-installer from 7300 to 7200 Both will work, but not sure which is to be preferred. I guess the first option is most straightforward. And that would still leave powerpc/powermac_oldworld. AFAICT grub should not be installable for that. Which also reminds me that you did not really address this question: > Also, if only some subarchitectures are supported, grub-installer should > at least check for those (but I'm not sure that you can check for just > pegasos/efika). Preferably, grub should not be offered for _any_ powerpc systems it does not support. Looking at libdebian-installer/src/system/subarch-powerpc-linux.c, the only subarch where grub should be installable is powerpc/chrp_pegasos, so it looks like this could easily be solved in grub's debian/isinstallable file. Please post patches (including changelog entry) to the list before committing.
