Subject: boot-floppies: dinstal don't checks the architecture
To: submit@bugs.debian.org
X-Mailer: bug 3.1.5

Package: boot-floppies
Version: N/A


I've tried to install debian 2.0 from an incomplete mirror
(hamm/disks-i386 was empty). I chose install base system
from nfs. Then it gave a short list to me whith two
directory: dists/sid/main/disks-sparc included.
I pressed enter, so it unpacked a base2_0.tgz for *sparc*
to my intel box.

boot-floppies (2.2.2) unstable; urgency=low

  * this version of boot-floppies is not yet feature complete for potato.
    We still need a lot of help in making dbootstrap better.  Other things
    which are still dreadfully wrong:
      - task package selection not yet integrated
      - xviddetect/anXious not yet integrated
      - apt configurator not yet integrated
      - unified i18n/l10n language/charset not yet fully implemented
      - perl-base still has lots of problems
      - modconf still has tons of problems
    Please volunteer on debian-boot@lists.debian.org or notify/pester/NMU
    the appropriate packages
  * busybox: update to 0.39 from Erik Andersen <andersee@debian.org>;
    enable lots of new commands in busybox, which saves space on root.bin;
    new commands: syslogd, logger, ping, tail
  * overall aesthetics, cleanup, and maintainability fixes; fix numerous
    problems relating to compatability with the new busybox
  * base: add fbset, move all arches to libpopt0 and libnewt; remove
    bloat pkgs such as libstdc++2.9 and perl-5.005; new pcmcia 
    (closes: Bug#52692)
  * rescue: add sed (from 'sed' package); add lazybox 'free'; remove
    fgrep; stop having vi pose as ae, but instead it emit a message; fix
    bad errors in rescue/modules install.sh scripts (closes: Bug#49517);
    update f*.txt messages for i386, boot arguments documentation in
    particular expanded and updated; fix "restart dbootstrap" by looping
    in /etc/init.d/rcS
  * dbootstrap: added hostname sanity check to netconfig.c (closes:
    Bug#37045); use syslog for logging of all cmd output, which stops
    stuff from getting scribbled on the screen (closes: Bug#32581);
    preliminary support for install base via http
  * root: re-enable library reduction on alpha; provide usr/bin/eject from
    eject package on m68k (closes: Bug#52304)
  * documentation: fix to work with new debiandoc-sgml (currently at
    1.1.36); top-level README for developers mentions you need a head to
    build (closes: Bug#49524); new base size is (at least) 45MB (maybe more)
  * new top level command, 'make mirror' to make a mirror of the
    packages needed to build base; 'make check' improved
  * top-level Makefile: 'make check' now includes $(local_dir) in its
    attempts to populate updates/, checks zlib-bin in i386 check deps; use
    zlib-bin's miniunzip rather than the non-free unzip
  * control: depend on libi18n-langtags-perl, flex; remove depends on
    slice and suggests on unzip
  * remove dpkg-multicd, gettext, perl-5.005, libstdc++2.9, libdb2 from
    base (closes: Bug#48872)
  * rethink file naming:
    Common files should appear on the top-most level at which they are
    common.  This is a deeper directory structure but it will enable us to
    have consistency across architectures and be easier for users to
    understand.  For i386 1440k rescue disk, this is now
    'disks-1.44/rescue.bin', which has the benefit of being ok for a FAT
    filesystem (closes: Bug#43057) -- NOTE: this new system introduces
    file naming issues for file searching in dbootstrap which are not yet
    implemented on all platforms -- YMMV
  * add top-level release/README file describing the new file layout, etc.
  * i386: support for dac960 controller on root disk and base disks;
    switch to 2.2.13 kernel (closes: Bug#52106)
  * i18n: portuguese keyboard support added (closes: Bug#49976);
    pt.po fixed (closes: Bug#47633); Hungarian (hu) translation added;
    Esperanto (eo) updated
  * i18n: groundwork for conherent/consistent i18n/l10n handling, see
    utilities/language-chooser for info (this is not yet part of the
    built boot-floppies)
  * more bug closing of things fixed with kernel 2.2.x 
    (closes: Bug#43058, Bug#25274)
