[d-i] Problems encountered while trying to build modules



Hi,

I'm currently trying to build d-i modules and test installations on i386
so I could report problems.

I followed Tollef's advice on how to build d-i[1] and, with some help
from people on #debian-boot, started build d-i modules. I didn't
finished it yet, but I found some problems and would like to report them
here :

1) grub-installer module :

There's no debian/changelog file so dpkg-buildpackage won't work and the
.udeb won't be generated. I checked lilo-installer/ directory and there's a
debian/changelog into there and it was built correctly.

2) partkit module :

partkit failed to build and generated errors while being compiled as
follow :

andrelop@foobar:~/debian-installer/tools/partkit$ !dpk

Well, that's all for now. I'll be testing things and will keep reporting
any problems encountered.

Keep up the good work guys :-)
