Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2.1
Severity: normal

	Current potato boot-floppies don't correctly handle the question:

"Will the hardware clock be set to GMT?"

	A change in the sysvinit package has caused this. The file
/etc/default/rcS now contains the following:

"# Set UTC=yes if your system clock is set to UTC (GMT), and UTC=no if not.

	I usually answer no to the question and I ended up with the above
(incorrect) line.

	Methinks that utilities/dbootstrap/tzconfig.c needs to be fixed. I'd
fix it myself if I knew how :)

Subject: bugs fixed in boot-floppies 2.2.4
From: Adam Di Carlo <adam@onshore.com>
Date: Mon, 03 Jan 2000 14:52:09 -0500
Sender: apharris@burrito.onshore.com
Message-Id: <20000103195209.402B7938CB@arroz.fake>

Thank you for your bug report.  The bug should have been closed by
boot-floppies version 2.2.4, now in unstable (for i386, others
following shortly).  Let us know if you have any more problems.

.....Adam Di Carlo....adam@onShore.com.....<URL:http://www.onShore.com/>

Changes: boot-floppies (2.2.4) unstable; urgency=low
  * fdisk: using the 2.2 features of the /proc file-system, we should be
    able to detect any and all kernel-supported r/w random-access devices
  * dbootstrap: installation via HTTP method (net-fetch) added; messages
    not yet tuned, this method should work fine but might not look pretty
  * dbootstrap: look for files and stuff in
    dists/potato/main/disks-%s/current where %s is the architecture name
  * busybox: more updates, fixing some critical problems in tar (setuid
    not respected, files with symlinks to them (i.e. libc) set to 777),
    cp, and mv didn't work for directories; fix problem where symlink
    targets were made world-writable (!)
  * dbootstrap: when writing /etc/fstab, use tabs (closes: Bug#11926,
  * dbootstrap: add commented out /dev/pts example to /etc/fstab
    (closes: Bug#33950)
  * dbootstrap: don't ask about GMT or not on m68k; when we *do* ask about
    it, do it in one dialog box, not two; look for UTC not GMT in
    /etc/default/rcS (closes: Bug#48866)
  * base: remove setserial from sparc platform
  * base: add xviddetect, and pciutils -- these are not yet integrated,
    however; debconf-tiny integration put off due to critical
    perl-5.005-base bugs
  * rescue: rdev.sh handles an alternate kernel location as an optional
    argument (closes: Bug#27650)
  * dbootstrap: ask when mke2fs'ing whether to use 2.2 specific features
    (closes: Bug#47490)
  * dbootstrap: change the wording of the name server selection
    (closes: Bug#23337); many other wording changes
  * dbootstrap: don't put `vga=normal' in the default lilo.conf since it
    apparently breaks MDA graphics cards (closes: Bug#35873)
  * top-level Makefile: check for dependancies by examining
    /var/lib/dpkg/status instead of running `dpkg --get-selections' since
    the latter only shows whether a package is *selected* for installation
    (closes: Bug#52596)
  * scripts/basedisks/new_root_home/.bash_profile: trap `:' instead of `""'
    so that children don't ignore the signals (closes: Bug#21867)
  * dbootstrap: be more specific when prompting for floppies
    (closes: Bug#48779)
  * debian/rules: scrub /usr/src/boot-floppies.tar.gz more, removing wierd
    ownership and permissions
