I'm almost done in preparing a customised d-i for the aGNUla/DeMuDi
CDD, and I have to say that this new d-i is sooo beautiful and easy to
I'm basing on the beta4 release, and I decided not to use debian-cd for the moment.
I simply replaced the pool/ and dist/ trees, which include:
1) all the packages needed by debootstrap
2) all the main/debian-installer section
3) an home made udeb which installs a package which customise
the base-config menu
4) the optional packages used by DeMuDi
Everything is running fine..
I still do not understand which is the proper way to autoconfigure
XFree86, by now I'm using xdebconfigurator and dexconf.
Moreover it would be nice to have a tool which builds a minimum Debian
mirror with just the packages needed by debootstrap and the most
important udebs. I think that this way we could use debian-cd with a
bottom-up approach, without downloading a whole debian mirror.
