Subject: base-config: apt-setup bug?
X-Mailer: bug-ja 188.8.131.52
Hi, I checked apt-setup, and found these problem.
1. select "edit sources list by hand" -> editor opened ->
-> exit editor -> apt-get update -> apt-setup terminated!
When the update done, apt-setup must return main menu, isn't it?
2. filesystem apt-line looks bad.
It writes "file:hostname:/foo/bar", but it must be "file:/foo/bar".
Here is ad-hoc patch.
if [ "$URI" = ftp -o "$URI" = http ]; then
+ if [ "$URI" = file ]; then
3. Is it my environment specific?
I haven't any choice chance of http-proxy, contrib, non-free, and non-US.
Following routines set default value, and any dialogs don't come up.

base-config - Debian base configuration package
Closes: 58594 58597 58598
base-config (0.20) frozen unstable; urgency=low
* The "left holding the bag" release.
* Fixed hostname in file:/ URI problem. Closes: #58594
* Default contrib to true if they select non-free.
* After tasksel, now installs packages via
/usr/lib/dpkg/methods/apt/install. This handles packages that fail to
install, etc, and is already well tested since it's used in dselect.
If it returns a nonzero exit code, ask the user if they want to try again.
* Clean up dbootstrap droppings in the form of /etc/pcmcia and
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/pcmcia, which are not registered with dpkg.
