Package: preseed
Severity: minor
Tags: d-i

used the pxe booting of rc2 netboot.tar.gz 
added to the kernel cli in pxelinux.cfg/default:
preseed/url=http://brane.itp.tuwien.ac.at/preseed.cfg languagechooser/language-name=English countrychooser/shortlist=AT console-keymaps-at/keymap=de

the network conf was done by dhcpd.

due to lack of time i didn't specify any partman preseeding.
apt-mirror worked like expected, but after manual partitioning
the preseeding path was lost.

as i was really in rush i don't remember when exactly the preseeding
path was lost, i'm really shure that 2stage wasn't preseeded.
the attached preseed.cfg was used. 


Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="preseed.cfg"

#### Modifying syslinux.cfg.

# Edit the syslinux.cfg (or similar) file, and add parameters to the end
# of the append line(s) for the kernel.
# You'll at least want to add a parameter telling the installer where to
# get its preseed file from.
# If you're installing from USB media, use this, and put the preseed file
# in the toplevel directory of the USB stick.
#   preseed/file=/hd-media/preseed
# If you're netbooting, use this instead:
#   preseed/url=http://host/path/to/preseed
# If you're remastering a CD, you could use this:
#   preseed/file=/cdrom/preseed
# Be sure to copy this file to the location you specify.
# While you're at it, you may want to throw a debconf/priority=critical in
# there, to avoid most questions even if the preseeding below misses some.
# And you might set the timeout to 1 in syslinux.cfg to avoid needing to hit
# enter to boot the installer.
# Language, country, and keyboard selection cannot be preseeded from a file,
# because the questions are asked before the preseed file can be loaded.
# Instead, to avoid these questions, pass some more parameters to the kernel:
#    languagechooser/language-name=English
#    countrychooser/shortlist=US
#    console-keymaps-at/keymap=us
# Note that the kernel accepts a maximum of 8 command line options and
# 8 environment options (including any options added by default for the
# installer). If these numbers are exceeded, 2.4 kernels will drop any
# excess options and 2.6 kernels will panic.
# Some of the default options, like 'vga=normal' and 'devfs=mount' may be
# safely removed for most installations, which may allow you to add more
# options for preseeding.

#### Shell commands.

# d-i preseeding is inherently not secure. Nothing in the installer checks
# for attempts at buffer overflows or other exploits of the values of a
# preseed file like this one. Only use preseed files from trusted
# locations! To drive that home, and because it's generally useful, here's
# a way to run any shell command you'd like inside the installer,
# automatically.

# This first command is run as early as possible, just after
# preseeding is read.
#d-i	preseed/early_command		string wget http://url/to/my.udeb -O /tmp/my.udeb ; udpkg -i /tmp/my.udeb
# This command is run just before the install finishes, but when there is
# still a usable /target directory.
#d-i	preseed/late_command		string for deb in /hd-media/*.deb; do cp $deb /target/tmp; chroot /target dpkg -i /tmp/$(basename $deb); done
# This command is run just as base-config is starting up.
#base-config	base-config/early_command	string echo hi mom
# This command is run after base-config is done, just before the login:
# prompt. This is a good way to install a set of packages you want, or to
# tweak the configuration of the system.
#base-config	base-config/late_command	string apt-get install zsh; chsh -s /bin/zsh
base-config	base-config/late_command	string apt-get install vim libgmp3 openoffice.org lyx maxima x-window-system-core ntp mozilla a2ps tetex-extra apache2 rsync lprng sudo gdm munin-node popularity-contest

#### Network configuration.

# Of course, this won't work if you're loading your preseed file from the
# network! But it's great if you're booting from CD or USB stick. You can
# also pass network config parameters in on the kernel params if you are
# loading preseed files from the network.

# netcfg will choose an interface that has link if possible. This makes it
# skip displaying a list if there is more than one interface.
#d-i	netcfg/choose_interface select auto

# If you prefer to configure the network manually, here's how:
d-i	netcfg/disable_dhcp	boolean true
d-i	netcfg/get_nameservers	string
d-i	netcfg/get_ipaddress	string
d-i	netcfg/get_netmask	string
d-i	netcfg/get_gateway	string
d-i	netcfg/confirm_static	boolean true

# Note that any hostname and domain names assigned from dhcp take
# precidence over values set here. However, setting the values still
# prevents the questions from being shown even if values come from dhcp.
d-i	netcfg/get_hostname	string ghost
d-i	netcfg/get_domain	string itp.tuwien.ac.at

# Disable that annoying WEP key dialog.
d-i	netcfg/wireless_wep	string 
# The wacky dhcp hostname that some ISPs use as a password of sorts.
#d-i	netcfg/dhcp_hostname	string radish

#### Mirror settings.

d-i	mirror/country		string enter information manually
d-i	mirror/http/hostname	string http.at.debian.org
d-i	mirror/http/directory	string /debian
d-i	mirror/suite		string testing
d-i	mirror/http/proxy	string 

### Partitioning.

# If the system has free space you can choose to only partition that space.
#d-i	partman-auto/init_automatically_partition	select Use the largest continuous free space
# Alternatively, you can specify a disk to partition. The device name can
# be given in either devfs or traditional non-devfs format.
# For example, to use the first disk devfs knows of:
#d-i	partman-auto/disk	string /dev/discs/disc0/disc

# You can choose from any of the predefined partitioning recipes:
#d-i	partman-auto/choose_recipe	select All files in one partition (recommended for new users)
#d-i	partman-auto/choose_recipe	select Desktop machine
#d-i	partman-auto/choose_recipe	select Multi-user workstation
# Or provide a recipe of your own...
# The recipe format is documented in the file devel/partman-auto-recipe.txt.
# If you have a way to get a recipe file into the d-i environment, you can
# just point at it.
#d-i	partman-auto/expert_recipe_file	string /hd-media/recipe
# If not, you can put an entire recipe in one line. This example creates
# a small /boot partition, suitable swap, and uses the rest of the space
# for the root partition:
#d-i	partman-auto/expert_recipe	string boot-root :: 20 50 100 ext3 $primary{ } $bootable{ } method{ format } format{ } use_filesystem{ } filesystem{ ext3 } mountpoint{ /boot } .  500 10000 1000000000 ext3 method{ format } format{ } use_filesystem{ } filesystem{ ext3 } mountpoint{ / } .  64 512 300% linux-swap method{ swap } format{ } . 
# For reference, here is that same recipe in a more readable form:
# 	boot-root ::
# 	40 50 100 ext3
#		$primary{ } $bootable{ }
#		method{ format } format{ }
#		use_filesystem{ } filesystem{ ext3 }
#		mountpoint{ /boot }
#	.
# 	500 10000 1000000000 ext3
#		method{ format } format{ }
#		use_filesystem{ } filesystem{ ext3 }
#		mountpoint{ / }
#	.
# 	64 512 300% linux-swap
#		method{ swap } format{ }
#	.

# This makes partman automatically partition without confirmation.
#d-i	partman/confirm_write_new_label	boolean true
#d-i	partman/choose_partition	select Finish partitioning and write changes to disk
#d-i	partman/confirm			boolean	true

#### Boot loader installation.

# Grub is the default boot loader (for x86). If you want lilo installed
# instead, uncomment this:
d-i	grub-installer/skip		boolean true
d-i     lilo-installer/activate-part    boolean true
#d-i     lilo-installer/bootdev  select  /dev/hda: Master Boot Record

# This is fairly safe to set, it makes grub install automatically to the MBR
# if no other operating system is detected on the machine.
#d-i	grub-installer/only_debian	boolean true
# This one makes grub-installer install to the MBR if if finds some other OS
# too, which is less safe as it might not be able to boot that other OS.
#d-i	grub-installer/with_other_os	boolean true
# Alternatively, if you want to install to a location other than the mbr,
# uncomment and edit these lines:
#d-i	grub-installer/bootdev		string (hd0,0)
#d-i	grub-installer/only-debian	boolean false
#d-i	grub-installer/with_other_os	boolean false

##### Finishing up the first stage install.

# Avoid that last message about the install being complete.
d-i	prebaseconfig/reboot_in_progress	note 

##### Preseeding base-config.
# XXX: Note that most of this will not work right until base-config 2.40.4
# is available.

# Avoid the introductory message.
base-config	base-config/intro	note 

# Avoid the final message.
base-config	base-config/login	note 

# If you installed a display manager, but don't want to start it immediately
# after base-config finishes.
base-config	base-config/start-display-manager	boolean false

###### Time zone setup.

# Controls whether or not the hardware clock is set to GMT.
base-config	tzconfig/gmt		boolean true

# If you told the installer that you're in the United States, then you
# can set the time zone using this variable.
# (Choices are: Eastern, Central, Mountain, Pacific, Alaska, Hawaii,
# Aleutian, Arizona East-Indiana, Indiana-Starke, Michigan, Samoa, other)
#base-config	tzconfig/choose_country_zone/US	select Eastern

# If you told it you're in Canada.
# (Choices are: Newfoundland, Atlantic, Eastern, Central,
# East-Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan, Mountain, Pacific, Yukon, other)
#base-config	tzconfig/choose_country_zone/CA	select Eastern
# If you told it you're in Brazil. (Choices are: East, West, Acre,
# DeNoronha, other)
#base-config	tzconfig/choose_country_zone/BR	select East
# Many countries have only one time zone. If you told the installer you're
# in one of those countries, you can choose its standard time zone via this
# question.
#base-config	tzconfig/choose_country_zone_single boolean true
# This question is asked as a fallback for countries other than those
# listed above, which have more than one time zone. You can preseed one of
# the time zones, or "other".
#base-config	tzconfig/choose_country_zone_multiple select 
base-config     tzconfig/choose_country_zone_multiple   select  Europe/Vienna

###### Account setup.

# To preseed the root password, you have to put it in the clear in this
# file. That is not a very good idea, use caution!
#passwd		passwd/root-password		password r00tme
#passwd		passwd/root-password-again	password r00tme

# If you want to skip creation of a normal user account.
#passwd		passwd/make-user		boolean false
# Alternatively, you can preseed the user's name and login.
passwd		passwd/user-fullname		string maximilian attems
passwd		passwd/username			string mattems
# And their password, but use caution!
#passwd		passwd/user-password		password insecure
#passwd		passwd/user-password-again	password insecure

###### Apt setup.

# This question controls what source the second stage installation uses
# for packages. Choices are cdrom, http, ftp, filesystem, edit sources list
# by hand
base-config	apt-setup/uri_type	select http

# If you choose ftp or http, you'll be asked for a country and a mirror.
base-config	apt-setup/country	select enter information manually
base-config	apt-setup/hostname	string http.at.debian.org
base-config	apt-setup/directory	string /debian
# Stop after choosing one mirror.
base-config	apt-setup/another	boolean false

# You can choose to install non-free and contrib software.
base-config	apt-setup/non-free	boolean true
base-config	apt-setup/contrib	boolean true

# Do enable security updates.
base-config	apt-setup/security-updates	boolean true

###### Package selection.

# You can choose to install any combination of tasks that are available.
# Available tasks as of this writing include: Desktop environment,
# Web server, Print server, DNS server, File server, Mail server, 
# SQL database, manual package selection. The last of those will run
# aptitude. You can also choose to install no tasks, and force the
# installation of a set of packages in some other way.
# XXX: this will not work until tasksel 2.12 is available
#tasksel		tasksel/first	multiselect Desktop environment
#tasksel	tasksel/first	multiselect Web server, Mail server, DNS server
tasksel		tasksel/first	multiselect 

###### Mailer configuration.

# During a normal install, exim asks only two questions. Here's how to
# avoid even those. More complicated preseeding is possible.
# exim4-config	exim4/dc_eximconfig_configtype	select no configuration at this time
exim4-config    exim4/dc_eximconfig_configtype  select  internet site; mail is s
ent and received directly using SMTP
# It's a good idea to set this to whatever user account you choose to
# create. Leaving the value blank results in postmaster mail going to
# /var/mail/mail.
exim4-config	exim4/dc_postmaster		string 

###### X Configuration.

# Preseeding Debian's X config is possible, but you probably need to know
# some details about the video hardware of the machine, since Debian's X
# configurator does not do fully automatic configuration of everything.

# X can detect the right driver for some cards, but if you're preseeding,
# you override whatever it chooses. Still, vesa will work most places.
#xserver-xfree86	xserver-xfree86/config/device/driver	select vesa

# A caveat with mouse autodetection is that if it fails, X will retry it
# over and over. So if it's preseeded to be done, there is a possibility of
# an infinite loop if the mouse is not autodetected.
#xserver-xfree86	xserver-xfree86/autodetect_mouse	boolean true

# Monitor autodetection is recommended.
xserver-xfree86		xserver-xfree86/autodetect_monitor	boolean true
# Uncomment if you have a LCD display.
#xserver-xfree86	xserver-xfree86/config/monitor/lcd	boolean true
# X has three configuration paths for the monitor. Here's how to preseed
# the "medium" path, which is always available. The "simple" path may not
# be available, and the "advanced" path asks too many questions.
xserver-xfree86	xserver-xfree86/config/monitor/selection-method	select medium
xserver-xfree86	xserver-xfree86/config/monitor/mode-list	select 1024x768 @ 60 Hz

###### Everything else.

# Depending on what software you choose to install, or if things go wrong
# during the installation process, it's possible that other questions may
# be asked. You can preseed those too, of course. To get a list of every
# possible question that could be asked during an install, do an
# installation, and then run these commands:
#   debconf-get-selections --installer > file
#   debconf-get-selections >> file

# If you like, you can include other preseed files into this one.
# Any settings in those files will override pre-existing settings from this
# file. More that one file can be listed, separated by spaces; all will be
# loaded. The included files can have preseed/include directives of their
# own as well. Note that if the filenames are relative, they are taken from
# the same directory as the preseed file that includes them.
#d-i	preseed/include	string x.cfg
# More flexably, this runs a shell command and if it outputs the names of
# preseed files, includes those files. For example, to switch configs based
# on a particular usb storage device (in this case, a built-in card reader):
#d-i	preseed/include_command	string if $(grep -q "GUID: 0aec3050aec305000001a003"  /proc/scsi/usb-storage-*/*); then echo kraken.cfg; else echo otherusb.cfg; fi

 debian-installer (20051005) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Bdale Garbee ]
   * updates for hppa support of 2.6.12 kernels
   [ Sylvain Ferriol ]
   * When ONLINE=n, APT must not cleanup lists directory.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Add preseed-common to all initrds, split out from file/network-preseed.
   * Add initrd-preseed too.
   * Add a PRESEED variable, which can be used to specify a preseed file to
     add to the initrd in the location initrd-preseed expects to find one
   * Default PRESEED to unstable.cfg, which sets mirror/udeb/suite, which
     means that all d-i developmental and daily builds that download udebs
     will download them from unstable, not testing.
   * However, in release builds of the package, this is unset, so those will
     pull udebs from testing as previously.
   * Try adding root=/dev/fd0 to the silo.floppy.conf since at least the 2.4
     kernel floppies are reported to not boot without it. This change may
     also affect the 2.6 kernel floppies, which need to be tested.
     Closes: #301374
   * Make syslinux configs use "install" as the label to install, in
     preparation for rescue mode. "linux" continues to work for
   * Add "install24" and "expert24" labels to syslinux configs, in
     preparation for making i386 use 2.6 by default.
   * Turn on dependency resolution for nic-extra-modules, especially useful
     since it has a new dependency in 2.6.11.
   * Turn on dependency resolution for standard-udebs and
     kernel-module-udebs. This allos most of the mess in monolithic/common
     to be removed as the dependencies pull most of it in, except where
     they're still broken.
   * When preseeding mirror/suite, don't make it be seen, so user can
     override from the default.
   * Recent additions (initrd-preseed) made the el-torito image too big on
     i386, drop usb CD support from it to make it build again.
     Stop abusing the build system in sparc.cfg by pretending that cdrom
     and miniiso are subarches. Add a "combined" subarch for these images
     that really contain both sparc64 and sparc32 support.
   * Included 2.6.8 kernel for amd64. Closes: #307306
   * Add support for creating initramfs initrd images (needs rootskel 1.12).
   * Move /unifont.bgf into lib. Needs rootskel 1.12.
   * Resisted the urge to drop i386 el-torito images, which filled up again
     once 2.6 fb-modules was fixed, and instead just dropped all translations
     from these (unused) images.
   * Add rescue-check to all images.
   * Add rescue, rescue24, and rescue26 boot options in syslinux.
   * To document these in syslinux, removed the old, useless f9.txt, and
     shifted f4 through f8 up one; the new f4 documents rescue mode.
   * Updated one place in the manual that referred to fn documents to reflect
     above change.
   * Document rescue mode in ia64 boot screens, but don't add stanzas for it
     since that would go over the limit of 16. Users will have to type
   * Add stanzas for rescue mode and document in sparc boot screen.
   * Remove devfs=mount from syslinux.cfg. Needs rootskel-bootfloppy 1.13.
   * Use dependency resolution for floppy-retriever, since mountfloppy has
     been split off of it and into a dependency.
   * Add bugreporter-udeb to the i386 root floppy, to cdrom images, and even
     to netboot images, so users can use it to report bugs earlier. Add
     commented out versions to other images on which it won't be very useful,
     since it currently required floppy support.
   * Update the manual for the /var/log/debian-installer ->
     /var/log/installer move.
   * Update the manual for the bugreporter-udeb rename, and for its
     new capailities.
   * Add an /etc/lsb-release file to the initrd, which includes the image
     build date. Useful for determining the provenance of an image.
     Closes: #250321
   * bugreporter-udeb got renamed and is now on more images.
   * Remove redundant rootskel entry from access floppy's package list.
   * Add mountfloppy to each initrd that contains save-logs, except for the
     s390 generic one. save-logs can now drop its dependency on mountfloppy.
   * Make the image tarball be listed as raw-installer in the changes file.
   * Switch to localechooser.
   * Drop all translations from the m68k floppy, which filled up when
     localechooser was added to it, since it didn't have countrychooser on it
   * Add new env-preseed to base pkg-list.
   * Turn of dpkg logging during image building. Need to depend on new dpkg
     for this.
   * Add support for virtual packages to pkg-lists.
   * Set DEBIAN_VERSION to etch.
   * Switch from hw-detect-full to disk-detect.
   * Updates for libiw28. Remove libiw27 from build deps and from exclude
     list, since the udeb is in fact used now to provide the library and
     netcfg's dependencies have been fixes. Enable dependency resolution
     for netcfg. Now no more updates should be needed here when libiw
   * Temporarily disable nano from all images, as it's linked to slang2 and
     the rest of d-i is not, and library reduction cannot cope with two
   * Change udeb list format to match file format expected by katie (add
     arch field).
   * Make update-manifest also manage a MANIFEST.udeb file listing the udebs
     inside each file in the manifest, and pass prameters to update-manifest
     calls to provide this information.
   * Include a udeb.list, based on the MANIFEST.udeb, but munged so katie can
     read it natively, inside the images tarball. This will be used to
     ensure that sources for d-i images do not fall out of the archive.
   * Copyright file updates for 2005.
   * Fix manual to note that linux supports HFS+. Closes: #313488
   * Unset LANG in chroot call in chroot-install section of manual.
     Closes: #311704
   * ia64 does not support rarp, remove from manual. Closes: #250028
   * Document deconf-set-selections -c to check preseed files. Closes: #284289
   * Try to pass appropriate manual_release when building the manual in rules
   * Switch to slang2.
   * Switch from busybox-cvs to busybox.
   * New busybox supports 2.6 modules, so the hack with modutils-udeb is not
     needed anymore.
   * Add isolinux.cfg files to the debian-cd-into tarball, so that we
     don't have to maintain the same stuff in debian-cd.
   * Switch i386 images that contain a 2.6 kernel to boot 2.6 by default,
     install24 etc boot 2.4.
   * Allow apt to run unauthenticated in offline mode since it may not have
     cached a Release.gpg.
   * di-utils-bootfloppy removed, pipe_progress moved to busybox.
   [ Kurt Roeckx ]
   * Changed libdevmapper1.00-udeb to libdevmapper1.01-udeb in the monolithic
     package list. Closes: #306976
   * Change amd64 kernel from 2.6.8-10 to 2.6.8-11.
   * Do not install nano in the monolithic target.
   * Change amd64 kernel from 2.6.8-11 to 2.6.12-1.

   * Add the list of needed characters for Kazakh
   * Add the list of needed characters for Vietnamese
   * Add the list of needed characters for Wolof
   * Add the list of needed characters for Bengali
   * Add the list of needed characters for Kurdish
   * Add the list of needed characters for Georgian
   * Add the list of needed characters for Icelandic
   * Add the list of needed characters for Hebrew

     Arash Bizanjadeh and Eugenyi Meshcheryakov
   * build/Makefile: include xx_YY files from needed-characters to all.utf
     and not only xx files
   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Force HOME=$(TEMP) for hfsutils calls throughout powerpc
     hd_media_common target.
   * Ship yaboot with powerpc hd-media images.
   * Add rescue stanzas to yaboot configuration files.
   * Document raised kernel command-line limits in 2.6.9.
   * Remove devfs=mount from yaboot configuration files. It shouldn't be
     needed any more.
   * Don't remove modules.*map from the initrd if we're using real hotplug.
   * Use the kernel-specific discover and isa-pnp-modules include files
     rather than explicitly listing those udebs throughout pkg-lists.
   * Make a note about another possible cause for 'locale charmap' being
     wrong during font generation, since it confused me for days ...
   * Document new-style timezone preseeding, available from base-config
   * Document rescue mode in the manual.
   * Remove historic manual files from (variously) woody and the old build
   * Copy KEYRING into the initrd, as /usr/share/keyrings/archive.gpg. I'm
     relying on the keyring being small here, although we should really have
     a keyring udeb instead.
   * Build-depend on gnupg; apt requires it to verify signatures.
   * Add udev pkg-lists files (including both udev and hotplug); not used by
     default yet.
   * Add real alternatives for virtual glibc-pic build-dependency.
   * Remove powerpc-builtin-initrd.sh and corresponding bzip2
     build-dependency on powerpc; we use mkvmlinuz everywhere now.
   * Keep modules.alias in udev/hotplug builds; new coldplug udev needs it.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Fix logic error in build/util/pkg-list to get rid of incorrect warnings
     about missing lists.
   * Add build dependencies needed to build PDF/TXT versions of the manual.
   * Make main build script for the manual fail on errors.
   * Introduce cascading stylesheet for the HTML version of the manual.
   * Modify build depends to allow openjade1.3 as well as openjade.
   * Add appendix on installing over plip, contributed by Sylvain Ferriol;
     edited by Frans Pop.
   * Document network-console in manual.
   * Switch sparc to 2.6.12 kernel, dropping 2.6 support for sparc32 as there
     is no 2.6.12. kernel available.
   * Update silo configurations to properly support install, expert and rescue.
   * Enable building both 2.4 and 2.6 images for sparc CDs.
   * Split preseeding example in manual into seperate files for Sarge and Etch;
     the differences were getting too great for a single file.
   [ Martin Michlmayr ]
   * Add support for rescue mode to mipsel/cobalt.
   * Rename the default target of {mips,mipsel}/sb1-swarm-bn from
     'installer' to 'install' in compliance with other arches.
   * Add support for rescue mode to {mips,mipsel}/sb1-swarm-bn.
   [ Stephen R. Marenka ]
   * m68k tools rework.
   * incorporate boot/m68k/amiga scripts in tools.
   * initial support for future penguin and amiboot packages.
   * drop 2.2 kernel support for everything but macs.
   [ Eddy Petrisor ]
   * Removed ASCII characters from needed-characters/vi
   [ David Nusinow ]
   * Add attribution to Karsten M. Self for chroot-install section of the
     manual. Closes: #316487
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Switch i386 to 2.6.11 kernel.
   * Add file-preseed to netboot image so file-based preseeding can be used on
     netboot mini iso.
   * Remove file-preseed from netboot; that won't work since netboot never
     mounts a CD, duh.
   * Enable text frontend for netboot on all arches.
   * Aribitrarily increased sparc ramdisk_size to 9000 from 8192, since
     it's at least 8230 big now due to added languages.
   * Build-depend on newest libdebian-installer as some udebs have a versioned
     dependency on it.
   * Switch i386 to 2.6.12 kernel.
   * Add support for running upx on binaries inside the initrd, and turn it
     on for a marginal space gain in the (full) i386 boot floppy.
   * Remove usb floppy support from speakup boot floppy since it's terminally
     low on space.
   * Add comments to control file about build deps and add genbuilddeps which
     generates the build dep line based on the comments.
   * As part of the review, removed ncurses-base (not used since we got the
     terminfo udeb), and libnewt0.51 (pulled in by a dep from libnewt-dev)
     and cpio (WTF?)
   [ dann frazier ]
   * Switch ia64 to 2.6.12 kernel.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Turned on dependency resolution by default for udebs in pkg-lists.
   * Add libnss-files-udeb to exclude list to work around bug #322506
     (removed again as #322506 was fixed and the exclusion broke
      network-console for S/390 - FJP).
   * Optimise pkg-lists a bit.
   * rootskel-locale renamed to installation-locale.
   * Move md5sums and udeb.list generation into "release" target of
     build/Makefile and run these as part of the daily build too.
   * Cleaned up various userdevfs cruft, goes along with a reworked
     userdevfs udeb.
   * As part of userdevfs cleanup, removed m68k initrd22 images,
     the regular initrds should work wih 2.2 kernels.
   * Add ads subarch for arm, with a "cf" image flavour used to boot
     various ADS arm boards from compact flash. There is not yet a kernel for
     these boards in Debian, so the images do not include a kernel and must be
     used with a monolithic kernel (from ADS).
   * The stats targets no longer build any images. If the image is not built,
     it just won't display stats for it. This is mainly to work around a bug
     that affected the daily builds, where running stats in a separate fakeroot
     after the build would run build again, and rebuild initrds based on the
     trees in tmp, messing up permissions and devices. It also removes a lot of
     unnucessary work in stats, and allows simpler invocation of stats by
     the daily-build script.
   * Don't regenerate the list of udebs in an image in stats, this was
     redundant info and was slow and ugly to generate there.
   * Remove config/local from svn and add a comment to config/common about
     making the file.
   * Add an evil workaround for bug #329733.
   [ Sven Luther ]
   * Enabled powerpc64 support.
   * Killed all 2.4 powerpc kernels except apus.
   * Upgraded to 2.6.12 powerpc kernels.
   [ Otavio Salvador ]
   * Change dependency to libparted1.6-13 due a new soname change on parted
   [ Dann Frazier ]
   * Drop the Linux 2.4 support for ia64.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Temporarily disabled powerpc floppy builds since they depend on miboot
     kernel udebs that are not in the archive.
   * Temporarily made it build against udebs in sid when releasing this
     package, since it's taking too long to get udebs into etch for a release.
