This has been fixed in slang2-2.0.4, which has been uploaded to
gluck_delayed (as ftp-master is down). It is also mirrored in

Once this is used, nano-udeb should just work.

I'm working on slang2 as fast as I can!

The remaining packages in d-i using slang1 are cdebconf and cfdisk-udeb.
I am working on these now (see
http://wiki.debian.org/?EtchSlang2upgrade ). I hope to rebuild them as
soon as possible, but for now they should just work, but pull both slang

cfdisk-utf8 is a temporary package due to the fact that cfdisk (in
util-linux package) doesn't do UTF8. util-linux now links against
libslang2, so should do UTF8 (when rebuilt against 2.0.4), but needs a
bit of tidying up to generate a cfdisk udeb; on my todo list.

cdebconf-newt /slang links against libslang2, but there is a bug
stopping it from showing non-ASCII characters properly; fixing this is
my current priority item.
