Re: do we need termwrap?

  Has there been any resolution to this problem?  I'm working on the
installer for hppa, and currently have a termwrap.deb (created with alien),
and have debootstrap install that, but that is just a temporary hack.



1:2345:respawn:/sbin/termwrap /usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure base-config </dev/tty1 >/dev/tty1 2>&1

so either that needs fixing, or termwrap needs to come from somewhere.
