critical problems in 2.3.5 prevent release

Well, on powerpc at least, the "configure base" step is getting
skipped by default.  This leads to lack of /etc/fstab and other evil

on booting into my new system, I didn't have the right inittab in
place; it gave me the "true" inittab instead

I have uploaded i386 and powerpc images to

Someone please test the i386 images to see if they are installable or
not.  If someone coudl confirm the powerpc problems as well that
would be good.

Also, I need some poeple on the debian-boot list to file bugs as
appropriate against debootstrap and such...

* Other really annoying problems (but not blocking 2.3.5 release)

dhcp is failing after the first boot -- is debootstrap grabbing
dhcp-client when it installs base?

debootstrap is still saying: 'Failure trying to run: dpkg
--force-auto-select --force-overwrite --force'

the quik booting didn't work on this Wallstreet PowerMac, but that's
status quo, not a blocker per se.  No, it's not ofpath failing, that
returns fine (ofpath /dev/hda => /pci/mac-io/ata0/ata-disk@0:).  I
can't tell if that's actually used to set boot-device because the
system is going into serial console and I don't have one at the

Things working now:

  - install sid works again (it is really identical to woody?)

  - dhcp worked fine from dbootstrap  

I'll have to retry 2.3.5 build on Monday because I'm out on a trip
until then.
