Bug#124117: boot-floppies: udbootstrap exits after base install
Version: cvs -- Sat Dec 15, 2001
After successfully (I think since rebooting with the rescue disk and specifying
the root device worked as expected) installing the base system dbootstrap
exited, bringing me back to the choose language screen. I choose a language
again, and I am offered the option to 'make the system bootable'. I choose the
'make system bootable' option, dbootstrap exits again, bringing me back to the
language chooser yet again. I select a language and I am again offered the
'make system bootable' option. Enough, I reboot with the rescue disk.
I observed this behavior with idepci and reiserfs (i386) flavors on two
different machines this morning. Perhaps we have a strlen/sizeof issue in both
bootconfig.c and baseconfig.c that causes us to segfault when run in a bterm?
