Bug#255012: debian-installer: d-i tc1 still has broken busybox, unusable on all sparc machines made last 5 years
Quoting Blars Blarson (firstname.lastname@example.org):
> Package: debian-installer
> Severity: grave
> Justification: renders package unusable
> d-i tc1 downloaded from
> still has the old broken busybox, when the fixed one has been in sid
> for several weeks. This broken busybox cannot load modules on
> ultra-sparc systems, so all cdroms other than the mini are unusable.
tc1 has been officially abandoned
Given that these sparc-related problems are well-known and adressed, I
don't really understand why a RC bug is filed, then.
