Subject: Obsolete boot-floppies dependency and a suggestion
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
X-Mailer: Mutt 0.95i
Hi, I thought it was worth mentioning that boot-floppies appears to depend
on newt0.25-dev, a package which appears to have vanished in a puff of smoke and
been replaced by newt0.30-dev.
Actually, I have one other minor question; boot-floppies appears to assume
that you have a Debian CD or local FTP mirror or some other mounted version
of the package repository. Is it possible that boot-floppies could be
modified to allow the use of wget, ftpget, or some similar facility?
Nothing is hopeless.
(a) Assume the opposite.
(b) If something _is_ hopeless, then its condition can only improve.
(c) If its condition can only improve, then there must be hope for it.
(d) Therefore, nothing is hopeless. QED.

These bugs were closed by boot-floppies 2.2.3, now in unstable.
.....Adam Di Carlo....adam@onShore.com.....<URL:http://www.onShore.com/>
boot-floppies (2.2.3) unstable; urgency=low
* busybox: updated to 0.40; fix logger; remove free (use lazybox free
instead, which is better)
* dbootstrap: 'expert' boot argument skips some annoying confirmation
dialog boxes; fix kbdconfig dialog being too big; fix the 'list'
archive selection method for installing kernel; more debugging and
informative messages piped to syslog; on i386, install mbr using
/sbin/install-mbr; for m68k, fix keyboards; when doing 'list' method
of disk or mounted archive location selection, just do it if we only
have one possibility
* root: add lazybox 'man' command, reminding users to install man-db pkg
* debian/copyright: remove old FSF address; add/re-organize busybox,
lowmemrd, dbootstrap copyright information (lintian)
* debian/control: standards version 3.1.1; depend on gcc, file; change
priority to extra
* debian/rules: debhelperify; binary package contains the tarball
/usr/src/boot-floppies.tar.gz, rather than the unpacked files in
* i18n: Hungarian, Russian, French, Portuguese updates
* powerpc: add amiga-fdisk to base and root
* close bugs from last release (closes: Bug#52073, Bug#41193, Bug#30959)
* we split root/boot now, maybe we'll do initrd or some such for woody,
but lets close this bug (closes: Bug#40160)
* README clarifications (closes: Bug#41189)
