[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it


After rebooting the keymap I selected was not retained.
After rebooting the hostname for the machine was not retained, and localhost
was used instead.

Apart from that it has been a wonderful experience, and I had no problems at 
all. I was following the published HOWTO. Since the bug in the partitioning 
(209286) is  solved from partitioner 0.07, maybe the paragraph which warned 
not to use it can be removed from the above document (I actually used the 
partitioner, since, after having a look at the bug it was closed, and I had 
the right version of partitioner in the cd)

I also tried to use autopartkit, and it didn't work. Maybe this depends on 
the fact that I tried it after having actually partitioned in the "classical 
way" (in fact I only wanted to look at it and see what it proposed). 
Ok, I had mounted partitions and the swap activated, but maybe autopartkit 
could umount them, before doing anything (if this is the problem). After all
I allowed it to destroy my data, didn't I? ;) Anyway: using the automatic
partitioner gave some errors, and I don't know if it's because I already had 
partition table or not...

Thanks for all, btw, I think the system is very nice! :)

 base-config (2.00) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Safir Secerovic
     - Add Bosnian translation (bs.po).
   * Tommi Vainikainen
     - Add Finnish translation (fi.po).
   * Ilgiz Kalmetev
     - Update Russian templates tranlsation. Closes: #221445
   * Sent a few things to /dev/null.
   * Rename apt-setup/distribution to mirror/distribution, and
     apt-setup/http_proxy to mirror/http/proxy, to match values from
     Note that I still use symbolic release names in mirror/distribution,
     in contrast to d-i. I will accept code names though.
   * Add debian-installer/keymap dummy template to get values copied from d-i.
   * Inherit debconf/priority from d-i. This means it defaults to high for
     most installs, which is a large change!
   * Add support for copying configs in from a d-i cdebconf db, and for
     setting LANG based on debian-installer/locale. When present, a cdebconf
     db overrides dbootstrap_settings, but the old file is still supported,
     for now, for compatability.
   * Applied patch from Christian Perrier for debconf template polishing.
     Closes: #220836
     (However, there were some rejects, and so it was a hand merge, and
     the French translaton update part of the patch was droppd.)
   * Remove "persistent" from apt-setup/security-updates, added incorrectly
     by above patch.
   * No longer take the mere presense of /root/dbootstrap_settings as an
     indication of a new install; $1 must equal new.
   * Move and rename scripts that can be menu items, and add .mnu files to
     control their order and usage.
   * Add menu items to debconf templates.
   * Change hostname script to always prompt for the hostname at at least
     medium priority, but use high if the hostname is not set at all.
     This is so it will do something if picked manually from the menu.
   * Also, if the hostname is "localhost", as set by d-i on a non-networked
     (or dhcp?) install, always ask about it at high priority.
   * Fix hostname script to not do the stupid substitute into a default thing;
     the SET command is there for a reason.
   * Don't bother asking about or doing a poff.
   * Add a menu item to run a shell.
   * Merge the X hack and popcon into the pkgsel and apt-get steps.
   * Move the note about base-config from the intro to the final message.
   * Merge screen blanking code into intro and finish.
   * Merge all the final stuff into one finish menu item, which has better
     flow than we had before, with the final message really being final.
   * Enable xdm starter.
   * Remove redundant LANG setting code from base-config program, it will
     only be handled by termwrap now.
   * Modify base-config to display a menu at medium priority, and operate
     based on .mnu files. If something goes wrong, drop debconf priority to a
     level that displays the menu, from which you can retry steps to hopefully
     correct it. Closes: #55403, #127678, #197073, #159544
   * Update base-config man page to document new stuff.
   * Only pass --unseen-only to dpkg-reconfigure calls when it's a new
     install. If base-config is re-run, old questions should also be
   * Make pkgsel set a default package selector.
   * Improve localised strings for package selectors.
   * Cleaned up title setting.
   * Depend on debconf 1.3.22 for SETTITLE support and debconf-communicate.
   * Convert the install-problem template to a note, and always display the
     main menu if it fails there.
   * Increase the priority of the package selector question to high.
     Without displaying that question, I'd need a high priority note to explain
     what comes next anyway.
   * Remove text in hostname question about it being a fqdn. d-i puts a non
     qualified name in there, after all.
   * Display the welcome banner and final message at high priority so they
     will still be visible.
   * Rename the log file to base-config.log.
   * Remove console tools removal code for serial consoles, d-i just doesn't
     install it in that case.
   * The console-tools keymap file has changed from
     /etc/console-tools/default.kmap.gz to /etc/console/boottime.kmap.gz.
     Probably Closes: #212440, #212448 (I'd appreciate some more testing.)
   * Rename KEEP_BASE_DEBS to KEEP_DEBS and make it disable all apt-get clean
     calls in base-config. Closes: #217814
   * If the user includes non-free, always pull in contrib. Conversly, if they
     do not pick non-free, then ask about contrib at a low priority. There
     are a few things in contrib that do not depend on non-free.
     Closes: #209403
   * Move Mirrors.masterlist to libdir so it will be copied to tmp with
     everything else.
   * Clarified the PPP question.
   * Propigate exit code from apt-setup out to menu to allow fallback.
   * Make tzsetup exit 30 if backed up past its start.
   * Similar changes to finish, hostname, intro, pkgsel, pon.
   * Bugs filed on console-data, passwd, exim4-config, to get them to exit
     30 appropriatly as well. This leaves only apt-get that in general you
     cannot back up from.
   * Turn on capb backup for all of base-config.
   * Make base-config itself exit 30 if you back up from the main menu.
   * Urgency medium because this will get little testing before it is in
     testing, and because some of the unfiled bugs fixed above are really
     release critical.
