Yes, I had base-config 1.0. Picked up your change to inittab, and now
have a problem with the editting of inittab for serial consoles.
base-config now runs and I selected an http source for APT. Unfortunately
it chose to go for 'stable' without asking. I want unstable, for hppa.
I installed kernel+modules and base system from an unstable tree on a
local http server.
I'm guessing that is because of the following line in base-config/apt-setup
db_input low apt-setup/distribution || true
Anyway, the patch for editting inittab:
