Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Install boot loader:    [E]


I have booted from the installation CD with the following boot option:

linux vga=791

The installation went through until boot loader selection comes up. As I
prefer Lilo (and really think there should be an option to easily select
between Lilo and Grub) I pressed the "Back" Button to make bootloader
selection possible.

d-i creates a configuration file "/etc/lilo.conf" containing the
append="vga=791" option below both configured boot kernels (vmlinuz /
vmlinuz.old). This causes an error:

Fatal: APPEND or LITERAL may not contain "vga="

I find it not very usefull that after selecting Lilo as Boot manager, the
d-i stays in "menu mode" also base-config is started in "menu mode" after
1st stage.

If there is more than one boot option available, setting the "prompt" and
"timeout" option would help novice users to figure out how to boot into the
system of choice (Grub Boot Selection is also displayed).

Best Regards

     - Applied patch from Eugeniy Meshcheryakov to allow entry of traditional
       non-devfs device names. Closes: #265902
    - Grep "vga=" out of user-params, since lilo does not like this in
      append lines. Closes: #300206, #277664
    - Make vga= line in lilo.conf be taken from user-params if set in there.
