Package: boot-floppies
Version: N/A; reported 2001-12-12
Severity: important

when the kernel is passed the console=ttyS0 option, the kernel boot
messages are properly sent to the console.

however, the language choose shows up on the first virtual console, and
the keyboard is non-responsive.

the /boot/debian/kernel and /boot/debian/root.bin were taken from
resc2880reiserfs.bin

from /boot/grub/menu.lst:

Changes: 
 boot-floppies (3.0.18) unstable; urgency=high
 .
   * we are still building against unstable since there some things there
     that we need and the build doesn't seem to work too well using
     packages from woody
 .
   * this version introduces i18n for the following architectures:
       arm
       i386 (for the flavors compact, idepci, reiserfs and udma100-ext3,
             which have kernel framebuffer support)
       powerpc
 .
     Since we can't include all the languages we support, we had to define
     a smaller list of supported languages by default:
        en pt de pl fr es ja sv it hu
     Folks building their own sets can change this list in the top-level
     'config' file; our choices here were based on the linux users per
     country data at http://counter.li.org/reports/short.php?orderby=users#table
     closes: #80942
 .
   * updates to kernels we use:
       alpha uses 2.2.20 kernel images
       sparc moved to 2.2.20; sun4u moved to 2.4.16
       i386 moved to 2.2.20
       (powerpc still at 2.2.19 because pcmcia-modules-2.2.20-pmac not available)
       mipsel moved to 2.4.16
 .
   * David Kimdon
     - report failure if dhclient cannot configure the interface,
       closes: #109455
     - more Danish documentation and messages thanks to
       Claus Hindsgaul <claus_h@image.dk>
     - lots and lots of Danish translations thanks to Morten Bo Johansen
       and  Claus Hindsgaul <claus_h@image.dk>
     - fr.po update thanks to Martin Quinson <Martin.Quinson@ens-lyon.fr>
     - remember gateway on the second pass through network configuration
     - fix badly broken language chooser, closes: #120637
     - on i18n builds put libnewt-utf8-0 on rootdisk in place of libnewt0
     - fix i386 build rules so the modules on the rootdisk match the kernel
     - i18n some strings that missed out
   * Claus Hindsgaul
     - fixups for MSG-NO and MSG-YES, new entities for defaults.ent, remove
       orphaned dbootstrap.sgml form doc-check
     - replace "ø" (unsupported in CP437) in Danish boot messages with
       Swedish "ö", and remove da from the latin1 list in conf, since
       it did not seem to work anyway
     - Small spelling errors in english boot-new.sgml
     - Danish documentation updates, thanks to Morten Bo Johansen
     - updated Italian dbootstrap translation by Eugenia Franzoni
     - modify 'make lint-docs' to verify all architectures
       modify 'make lint-all-lang-docs' to verify all architectures
       remove 'make lint-all-arch-all-lang-docs' (use lint-all-lang-docs)
     - Update URLs to kernel-traffic and "Definition of Open Source"
     - Initial Danish release-notes translation
     - Update kernel versions in docs to match config
   * Stefan Gybas
     - use $ldlib in mklibs.py
     - s390: use mklibs.py instead of mklibs.sh for library reduction
     - include lsmod on initrd
     - include ASCtoEBC and EBCtoASC in partbl_ibm.c, they are no longer in
       <asm/vtoc.h>
     - fixed detection of point-to-point interfaces
     - s390: rewrote netsetup to be more modular, each network module can
       now provide a module specific script in /usr/share/netsetup/ for
       the chandev/module parameter configuration
     - s390: install netsetup.sh as sbin/netsetup
     - s390: don't modify etc/passwd on the initrd any longer
     - s390: reduce initrd size as modules from a second initrd are now
       symlinked instead of copied.
     - s390: Always offer to format a newly attached DASD to avoid problems
       if a previously used VM minidisk was resized
     - s390: Make /sbin/fdisk a symlink to fdasd
     - s390: Don't ask for bad block scan when formatting a DASD
     - use $MIRRORS instead of $s390_url to download the s390 udeb kernel
     - s390: Copy /root/.profile from s390-specials instead of changing
       the one from base-files
     - s390: use mini-inetd from the tcputils package instead of netkit-inetd
     - s390: Use grep, ping and hostname from busybox >=1:0.60.2-2. This
       version fixed a bug in grep's return code for binary files
     - s390: Use ifconfig instead of ifup in netsetup.sh
     - various other minor s390 fixes
   * Adam Di Carlo
     - fix a number of other i18n build issues
     - 'make clean' and 'make distclean' act more consistently
     - powerpc build was broken in last version, removing yaboot.conf which
       is now in CVS and not downloaded at build time
     - fix some root*.bin build dependancy problems
     - i386 reiserfs and udma100-ext3 flavors were not being built with
       revext set properly, thus they were not getting the proper pcmcia
       modules and such, closing part of #118999
     - i386 release.sh: split images-2.88 as its own tarball,
       bf-common*.tar.gz was getting too large
     - bogl-related stuff must be 0.1.8-1 or better
     - in i136/i18n build, don't allow reduction libnewt*-pic, since i386
       uses a mixed i18n and non-i18n build
     - require newt 0.50.17-9 or better both for building and root.bin
     - dbootstrap: when you mount an existing root partition with
       /lib/modules on it, we adjust the rootdisk /lib/modules to it and
       run depmod -a; this helps when you're restarting an aborted
       installation
     - dbootstrap: suppress message to testers if we're 'quiet'
     - dbootstrap: clear the screen properly in i18n and non-i18n
       closes: #124143
     - normal doc build uses docs.stamp to prevent it from getting rebuilt
       all the time in incremental builds
     - dbootstrap: improved info messages when it first starts
     - require debiandoc-sgml 1.1.53 or better, has locale for Catalan
     - require newest busybox, closes: #124107
   * Ethan Benson
     - recent portability patch to mklibs.py requires python 2 so
       Build-depend on python-dev (>= 2.1.1-4), python2.1-xml
     - fix utilities/dbootstrap/langs/Makefile: PYTHON_VERSION=2.1
     - mklibs.py now seems to work on powerpc, use it now
   * Christian T. Steigies
     - do not ship outdated m68k quickinstall docs
     - m68k uses 2.2.20 kernel-images
   * Carlos Barros: Spanish updates
   * David Martinez: Spanish updates
   * Andre Luis Lopes: Portuguese updates
   * Gerhard Tonn
     - s390 changes: make netsetup.sh more quiet and save gateway information
            from initial netsetup
   * Phil Blundell
     - fall back to single language mode if fbcon isn't available at runtime
     - fix naming of sparc driver disks in dbootstrap, closes: #118557
     - enable language chooser for ARM
     - try to fix unloading of pcmcia modules, closes: #120480
     - warn the user if trying to install on a machine with too little RAM

     - correct path to root.bin in udma100-ext3 install.bat, closes: #122869

       this is just for your enjoyment, not officially provided or
       supported by anyone
     - try harder to suppress modconf i18n in UTF-8 environment,
       closes: #121186
     - stop LC offering languages that have no catalog
     - improve layout of net-fetch dialog box when i18n in use,
       closes: #123388
     - print a register dump if dbootstrap segfaults in debug mode
   * Chris Tillman
     - add notes for single-language builders, powerpc-specials always en
     - reorganize floppy booting section, add boot-floppy-hfs,
       closes: #121065
     - add keyboard choice and append= line (tks Branden),
       closes: #122407
     - add Sun workstation clues, closes: #72479
