Package: debian-installer

When booting d-i and press F2 at the boot prompt, there
is a note:

"You need at least 24MB of RAM to use this installer."

This is not exactly true:

There should be a requirement for the graphical installer,
too, as it needs more ram.

And in #401889 is mentioned, that on powerpc the installer
needs more ram at all.

Please change this to prevent users coming in trouble because
having not enough ram.

Kind regards

 debian-installer (20070308) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Thiemo Seufer ]
   * Add Qemu mips/mipsel images, thanks Aurelien Jarno.
   [ Sylvain Ferriol ]
   * Add keyboard usb packages in i386 root floppy and move all net packages
     to i386 net-drivers-1 floppy.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Switch font used for Dzongkha in g-i to ttf-tmuni.
   [ Martin Michlmayr ]
   * Provide a properly encrypted firmware image for Thecus N2100 so the
     firmware upgrade process will recognize it.  Thanks to Kurt Roeckx
     for help with OpenSSL.
   * Remove incomplete armeb support.
   * Remove obsolete arm/nslu2 config files.
   * Switch arm, mips and mipsel to 2.6.18-2.
   * Switch arm, mips and mipsel to 2.6.18-3.
   * n2100: Add support for Evesham's M-Box.
   * Put in a workaround to support building with both apex 1.4.7 and the
     new 1.4.14 which changes the name of the apex binary; closes: #409747
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Stop using the system status file; generate a dummy status file for apt
     containing libc6 and libnewt (the only two debs udebs still depend on).
   * dhcp3-client-udeb is for some reason Standard priority, so gets included
     in monolithic image builds (and breaks the build). Exclude it from the
     monolithic images until its priority is fixed.
   * The i386 boot floppy will be too big with the 2.6.18 kernel, so drop
     usb input modules from it. USB keyboard support didn't work before
     anyway AFAICS, since usb-discover was not included.
   * With 2.6.18, nic-extra-modules gets too big to fit on the i386
     net-drivers-1 floppy with nic-modules. Move nic-extra-modules to
     net-drivers-2 and reorg to fit.
   * Don't exclude usb drivers from driver floppies; the root floppy does not
     currently load them.
   [ Sven Luther ]
   * Switch powerpc to 2.6.18-2.
   * Add a prep flavour.
   * Add fancontrol modules to cdrom and netboot images for powerpc64.
   [ Thiemo Seufer ]
   * Fix tftpboot.sh for mips/r5k-ip32.
   [ dann frazier ]
   * Switch ia64 to initramfs.
   * Make the default boot option on ia64 "Install" for consistency with x86.
   * Add rescue boot option on ia64.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Switch i386 to 2.6.18-3.
   * Apply patch from Alex Owen to fix serial console support for grub in the
     installed system (#224641).
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Add time to image build date, and set build date to UTC (was local
     time before).
   * Etch will be Debian 4.0.
   [ Stephen R. Marenka ]
   * Add preliminary network-console support to m68k.
   * Switch m68k to 2.6.18-3.
   * Add back the atari subarch and the floppy initrd.
   * Add emile to build-deps.
   [ Steve Langasek ]
   * Switch alpha to 2.6.18-3.  Now with support for TITAN systems, huzzah!
   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Switch powerpc to 2.6.18-3.
   * Document new GET_MAX_PRIMARY command in partman-base 99.
   [ Dann Frazier ]
   * Switch ia64 to 2.6.18-3.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Switch amd64, hppa, sparc and s/390 to 2.6.18-3.
   * On amd64 we temporarily need to include /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 in g-i initrds
     to work around #373253 until upstream can remove pthread_cancel() calls in
     directfb. Because of the Etch release this is implemented for now by
     setting EXTRAFILES in the relevant files under config/amd64.
   * daily-build: keep file attributes between build targets if fakeroot is
     used. Closes: #401603.
   * Raise minimal memory requirement in boot help screens on x86 to 32MB.
     Closes: #402276.
   * Makefile: don't strip "Choices-C" fields from templates if DROP_LANG is set
     (see #400263).
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Copy the keyring from debian-archive-keyring into images (was using the
     old keyring from apt). Build-depend on a current version of
     debian-archive-keyring for good measure.
   * Fix stripping of kernel modules by Makefile, was broken due to bogus find
   * /etc/apt/trusted.gpg can't be guaranteed to be readable, and the udeb
     download will fail to verify if it's not. Avoid this by making apt use
   [ dann frazier ]
   * Add scsi-common-modules to pkg-lists/cdrom/ia64.cfg. sym53c8xx.ko is in
     this package, which is needed for scsi cd-roms in machines like the
     HP rx7620 (closes: #403895)
   * Add relocatable flag to elilo.conf for ia64 - this is required when booting
     on Altix systems, though it cannot be used with 2.4 kernels
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Remove udev-udeb from the ADS cf image.
   * Rename gtk-miniiso targets to netboot-gtk, and place the resulting files
     under the netboot/gtk/ directory. Add full set of netboot files for the
     gtk image, not just the mini.iso. The gtk-miniiso directories are kept
     working via symlinks for now, so that we won't have to update the docs so
     late in the release process. Closes: #408535
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Update general copyright notices for Debian and Debian Installer to 2007.
   * Switch all architectures to 2.6.18-4.
   [ Martin Michlmayr ]
   * Update mips/mipsel boot configs to refer to 2.6.18-4.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Add support for armel. Symlink most arm configs to avoid duplication.
   * Add libgcc1 to the udeb exclude list, and add a dummy item for it to the
     status file. This supports armel, which already uses glibc 2.5, and will
     be needed later when other arches switch to it.
   [ Gordon Farquharson ]
   * Enable users to select a timezone on arm/ixp4xx, arm/iop32, and
     mipsel/cobalt. Closes: #403195.
   * Include the IXP4xx Ethernet driver on the initrd now that oldsys-preseed
     will choose the correct device depending on whether the NPE microcode
     is available.
   [ Steve Langasek ]
   * Add fb-modules to the initrds on alpha, now that matroxfb has been
     moved to a separate udeb; fixes support for installs on TGA-using
     systems.  Closes: #404485.
   [ dann frazier ]
   * [ia64] Fix elilo boot screen formatting - the addition of the time
     to the $BUILD_DATE variable was causing an ugly line wrap
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Document use of generic.all_generic_ide=1 in f6.txt.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Set default suite to etch (etch branch only).
