Subject: base-config: apt configuration problem
X-Mailer: bug 3.3.9
base-config is configured after a successful install of a Debian system.
Apt configuration is asked (and verified) at this point in time. As
networking may not yet be setup, the test can fail (with an apt failure
to resolve, if the resolv.conf file is missing nameservers). There is no
option to continue on without selecting an apt source (besides manual
editing), and no way to drop to a shell to maybe fix the problem (other than
through starting the editor and shelling out from it).
This will be very confusing for a new user. Base-config should probably
do some sort of networking setup, and at the very least allow the user to
continue and setup their apt sources later (if they configure the network

base-config (2.75) unstable; urgency=low
The "death march" release.
[ Joey Hess ]
* Adjust section to match overrides.
[ Colin Watson ]
* Exclude backup files and files under debian/ from the po build system,
and make sure executables are processed in a consistent order to avoid
lots of diff noise.
* Copy passwd/username, so that e.g. exim4-config still works after user
configuration moves to d-i (closes: #341130).
[ Joey Hess ]
* Remove the passwd reconfiguration code, user-setup handles this now in
* Clean up the intro message to not mention stuff that the ever-shrinking
base-config no longer does.
[ Translations ]
* add Bengali translations (Progga <progga@BengaLinux.Org>)
* Updated Brazilian Portuguese translation.
* Updated French translation.
* Updated Galician translation.
* Updated Spanish translation.
* Updated Czech translation.
* Updated Vietnamese translation. Closes: #343844
* Updated Swedish translation. Closes: #344055
[ Man pages translations ]
* Updated Spanish. Closes: #341456
[ Joey Hess ]
* Drop debconf/priority propigation from d-i as d-i no longer propigates it.
Closes: #228839, #245164
* Depends on debconf 1.4.61, since this is the first version to default
the priority to high, which is the priority we need with this change.
Closes: #228839, #245164
* Remove debconf-seed menu item, mostly, taken over by preseed 1.11.
NOTE NOTE NOTE: This means that base-config/early_command is removed.
* Remove base-config/late_command too, for consistency.
* pkgsel moved into a udeb. Closes: #240700, #242718, #256315, #259871
* MTA reconfiguration is not necessary with current debootstrap, since
no MTA is installed as part of the base system, so the user will see the
MTA question as usual if their task selection/whatever causes a MTA to be
* The pon menu item is not useful, since base-config no longer accesses the
net to install packages. Closes: #299554
* Remove GDM language fixup code, since bug #265101 got fixed.
* base-config no longer does anything with the network.
Closes: #106875, #265908, #267242
* Some other bugs that no longer apply due to removed code in base-config:
Closes: #246880, #275543
* Remove d-i debconf variable copying code, now handled by pkgsel.
* base-config program left in for compatability with old d-i's and such for
now, but it's essentially a no-op and everything has moved into d-i.
(d-i also still uses validlocale from this package for now.)
Next step will be removing this package entirely...
