Bug#389881: RC-ness of this bug


I urge you to reconsider severity of this problem.  There's another situation
that makes it much worse:

  - User boots off USB stick
  - sda is USB, sdb is SCSI or SATA
  - GRUB install on (hd0) (i.e. sda) fails.
  - Manual repairing is not possible, because if you boot a rescue system
    off USB stick, root disk will still be sdb.

This makes USB sticks unusable for any computer using SATA or SCSI (i.e.,
almost every modern x86).  I would rather not ship any USB images at all
than shipping them in this state.

As for finding a solution, I'm not sure what can be done.  Perhaps d-i could
tell udev in some way that device node names need to be reordered, right
after disks have been detected ?
