I was helping a new user to configure his woody installation, and was
surprised by some "funny" messages from misc. config script. First, I
could find the reason, then I realized that he used an _ underscore in
the hostname. Normally this must not be used, but the installer allowed
him to do so and "hostname" does not complain about "broken" strings, so
the this may be reproduced by newbies, sooner or later. We should
install something to check the entries, IMHO.

Closes: 98305 104114 104117 104117 105364
boot-floppies (3.0.8) unstable; urgency=low
* Matt Kraai
- check that DHCP really did successfully configure the interface
- report floppy merge problems so that they aren't ignored, and
handle short writes gracefully (reported by A. Robicek)
- restore escape characters to f5.txt (closes: #104114).
- in the `Report a Problem' step, log cp error messages instead of
dirtying the console, and fix a segmentation fault (closes: #104117)
- check host name for RFC 1035 compliance (closes: #105364).
* Adam Di Carlo
- debian/control: new Uploaders tag in source package for potential
source uploaders (requires new dpkg-dev)
- rootdisk: lazybox referred to nano rather than nano-tiny
* Ethan Benson
- Use e2fsprogs-bf instead of e2fsprogs
- rootdisk.sh: don't rm -rf $E until after mklibs.sh is run
- rootdisk.sh: run mklibs.sh with -L $E/lib:$E/usr/lib:/lib:/usr/lib
this way we don't end up getting the binaries from the extract area
and the non-pic libs from /lib and /usr/lib (instead of the extract area).
- Add support for installing base via a pile o' floppies (not tested yet).
- Set TMPDIR=/target/tmp in ybinwrapper, avoids failures since ramdisk
root filesystem is small.
- Add yaboot binary to $release/powermac so users don't have to go find one.
- Change rootdisk permission fixup to not touch device file permissions,
that way loop mounting a root.bin does not create a security hole.
- Fix floppy_split to properly pad the last floppy with nulls.
- Change `Install Operating System Kernel and Modules' to
`Install Kernel and Driver Modules' so aj won't be confused.
- Add patch from Colin Walters to support basedebs.tgz.
- Ignore .resource and .finderinfo when building lists of valid directories
- Make problem_report create a .fdisk-dump file for each disk, contents is
the output of fdisk -l <disk>.
- Update mac partition types/descriptions.
* Henning Heinold
- Alpha kernel is now 2.2.19
- Alpha glibc is now 2.2.3
- mipsel kernelversion is now 2.4.5
- fixing some points of the alpha build
* Christian T. Steigies
- m68k: Penguin-19 replaces both -18 and -17
* Richard Hirst
- ia64 support. Now invokes elilo to do boot partition setup.
- Don't redisplay keyboard selection menu if user hits cancel on it. Makes
it easy to keep kernel keymap if a suitable alternative is not available.
- hppa: tidy up better in release.sh:do_arch_hppa()
* Phil Blundell
- include SCSI support in RiscPC root disk
* David Kimdon
- Danish update to dbootstrap thanks to Claus Hindsgaul <email@example.com>
- when writing a problem report nfs mount must be read/write
