this has been caused by the fact of '1.0~a13' beeing considered smaller
than '1.0' by dpkg. however, fixed in svn.

it, as written on the list three times already, as documented in

nope. if you build an etch image, you get by default casper in it. only
if you *manually* set LH_INITRAMFS to live-initramfs (or re-use a sid
configuration), you get into a problem *iff* you didn't include the
backports repository. this was also explained several times on the

you don't need to add casper to the packages list.
i've never heard about this init thing. are you sure that this is a real
error and not one importend by unclean builds/configs? anyway, it would
be nice if you can give more information about that if you wont to get

i don't think so.
