Subject: module configuration needs to be smarter
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2.4
Severity: Wishlist

Dbootstrap needs to be smarter about installing modules.  It should only
install modules selected by the user during the modconf stage.  If no
modules are selected, then the dependency on drivers.tgz should be
bypassed.  In this case, the user should not be prompted for the drivers
disk(s).  Subsequent use of modconf should prompt for the drivers.tgz
disk(s) on a variety of medium in similar fasion as dbootstrap.

I'm closing all bug reports filed on the boot-floppies since this
codebase has reached its end of life. boot-floppies is only in Debian
oldstable now (and temporarily in unstable because of bug #224469).

The new installer for sarge and beyond is of course, the
debian-installer. It solves a great many issues present in the
boot-floppies.

If you believe that your boot-floppies bug is still present in
debian-installer somehow, then please reopen the bug report and reassign
it there, or perhaps better, file a new bug report.
