Package: boot-floppies
Version: N/A
Severity: normal

I recently installed a new Debian 2.2r0 system using the rescue/root/drivers
combo available on the CD Image. I found I could not get my brand new
tulip.o based Netgear FA 310TX Fast Ethernet PCI Adapter to work with the
2.2.17pre6 packaged and auto-installed with the boot-floppy.

The solution was to get the real 2.2.17 kernel source, but I couldn't get
that without 'net access! A dilemma indeed! I ended up pulling out an old
SMC Ultra (smc-ultra.o) card and using it to download the latest source and
using make-kpkg to generate a proper kernel.

This could cause definate problems for people who don't have an alternative
net card. I would suggest upgrading the boot-floppies source kernel to the
full 2.2.17.

The bug you filed against the boot-floppies package has been closed in
the most recent boot-floppies, 2.2.18, now in Potato (for i386
anyhow).  The changelog for that version is included.

Please let us know if you still have the problem, even in the newest

Thank you for helping Debian build a better installation systenm.

 boot-floppies (2.2.18) stable; urgency=low
   * build with Debian 2.2r1 plus updates (closes: Bug#77459)
   * Adam Di Carlo:
     - i386 and sparc use kernel 2.2.18pre21
       (closes: Bug#77425)
     - Makefiles: clean is a bit cleaner
     - release.sh (i386): also put kernel configs in TOP/<flavor> (hey,
       it's a small file); don't leave stranded release/kernel-config file,
       put it in the bf-common tarball
     - rootdisk.sh: add pcd0 device mknod (closes: Bug#74322), which
       MAKEDEV doesn't know about; add gscd and cm206cd devices; remove
       some hacks on device creation due to bugs fixed in MAKEDEV
     - dbootstrap: quiet bootarg makes more things shut up; disable the
       check for root filesystem being on extended partition while LILO is
       going on the MBR, because LILO supports this now (closes: Bug#64823);
       add new fullscreen_execlog utility function
     - debian/control: add Build-Depends and Build-Depends-Indep
       (closes: Bug#70387); remove required package from depends
     - documentation: fix links to dselect-beginner (closes: Bug#72870);
       add a section in the first chapter talking about where to get Debian
       (closes: Bug#71532); other corrections (closes: Bug#70871); fix
       linux history link (closes: Bug#76408); enable Polish and Russian
       documentation now that newer debiandoc-sgml is in Potato; give
       example TFTP file name on SPARC (closes: Bug#40775); mention
       problems with booting from IPX (closes: Bug#49172); when reporting
       bugs on i386, you must report the flavor
   * Josip Rodin:
     - documentation: update non-US package numbers
   * Eric VanBuggenhaut: French updates
   * Marcin Owsiany <porridge@pandora.info.bielsko.pl>:
     - Polish updates
     - documentation/doc-check script added to help translators stay
     - LANGUAGE_CHOOSER integration (closes: Bug#31865) detailed
       descriptions follow
       NOTE: i18n integration is not quite complete, but it is very very
             close; it has specifically been kept out of the mainline
             version due to some bugs which are expected to be fixed shortly
     - moved bf-utf from its module to utilities, modified relevant files
     - Makefile: added conditional build time depends on libpng2-dev
       and libpopt-dev
     - rootdisk.sh: uses LANGUAGE_CHOOSER for compact and idepci i386 flavors,
       in which case it: uses more blocks, adds  fb0 ptyp ptyq ptyr ptys
       devices, includes a font for bterm, includes a wrapper 'udbootstrap'
       and modifies inittab accordingly, includes libutf8_plug.so, bterm,
       all messages files, lc-enabled dbootstrap
       removed redundand '$' from awk invocations
     - utilities/bogl/Makefile: added bterm's font reduction to build process
     - utilitise/dbootstrap/Makefile: added rules necessary for creation of
       'dbootstrap-lc' - a language-chooser enabled dbootstrap, added configure
       runs to generation of libnewt and libslang
     - utilities/dbootstrap/po/Makefile: build both normal and utf messages
       files by default
     - added removal of necessary files to clean rules
   * Gleydson Mazioli da Silva: Portuguese updates
