Bug#211457: busybox-cvs-udeb: should be built with CONFIG_FEATURE_WGET_STATUSBAR
Version: 0.60.99.cvs20030819 (not installed)
Tags: patch d-i
busybox-cvs-udeb should be built with CONFIG_FEATURE_WGET_STATUSBAR.
1) It is very useful during large downloads (or on slow links) to
display some kind of progress information to the user. Parts of d-i
already make use of the progress information wget outputs.
2) debootstrap expects wget to output progress information, and regards
the download as failed unless "100%" is ever outputted. This causes
it to output erroneous warnings, as well as retry each download three
times. (See bug #211111)
The included patch enables this for the -udeb target, but not for
-net-udeb and not for -deb.
I have not done extensive checking, but it appears most places in d-i
already gives -q to wget whenever it's supposed to be quiet, and
pkgdetails (from base-installer) should be able to parse the progress
output busybox wget prints.
