18:24:28 < shirish> hi all, can somebody look at this
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=639884 and give me some
directions on message #27
18:28:19 < shirish> dba: please look ^^ .
18:30:39 < dba> shirish: can you just do as michal explained please?
18:31:02 < shirish> dba: doing, thanx.
18:36:34 < shirish> dba: also put up on the bug as well as pasted it at
18:39:34 < dba> shirish: so you have installed
live-boot-initramfs-tools, but you have *not* installed live-boot?
18:40:31 < shirish> dba: correct.
18:41:04 < dba> that's not possible.
18:41:15 < dba> as you can see from the package descriptions,
18:41:27 < dba> the package you want is live-boot, which depends on one
of multiple possible backends.
18:41:34 < dba> you can't just install a backend package only.
18:41:49 < dba> (and the backend can't depend on the frontend in order
to avoid circular depends)
18:42:20 < shirish> dba: right, understood. So basically the bug-report
is wrong. I will close it.
18:42:28 < dba> no, leave it open.
so, what live-boot-initramfs-tools should do is to give a proper failure
message and bail out gracefully. will do shortly in git.
