Recent work on supporting Atari in the debian-installer was done by
Stephen R. Marenka (CCed).
I'm aware of Stephen's work on the installer, but thanks anyway. What I
wanted to know (and no doubt, Stephen will enlighten me) is whether we
still need atari-fdisk in the installer.
nvsetenv (provided by nvram, IIRC) is used by quik-installer for
powermac-oldworld. Uploaders for the later are Colin Watson and Wouter
And maintainer for powerpc-utils (provider of nvsetenv both old- and
newworld) is yours truly. So I'm not worried about that one (unless I
missed some critical bug reports; not impossible given my current mail
nvram for Atari is something entirely different, and cannot be substituted
by another package.
I'll look into nvram, atari-fdisk and setsccserial, in that order. Stephen
can take atari-fdisk for all I care (it's no weirder than atari-bootstrap :)
... From the BTS, it looks like it's just about acknowledging NMUs and
closing decade old non-bugs.
CC: to Roman so he can speak up in case he still cares about these
packages (though unlikely).
