yep, that's correct: after etch r0, something has changed in gcc and

think the EXTRAFILES workaround should be applied to i386 and ppc in
the etch branch of the installer (see my yesterday's reply to #427657)
Why should it be applied in the Etch branch if the issue only affects
daily images? Or am I missing something here?
It has already been fixed for daily images.
As i reported yesterday, i built a miniiso from the "etch" branch in svn
and, everytime i switched to VTn, the installer crashed.
The workaround was adding the EXTRAFILES=/lib/libgcc.so.1 to i386
configuration files in etch branch, like you previously did for the
installer in trunk (and, infact, if you build from trunk, you won't get
the crash at VT switch).
Isn't the "etch" branch the one Etch next pointrelease is going to be
One more thing: ihavent tested the g-i on PPC, but i suspect we may need
to add the EXTRAFILES=/lib/libgcc.so.1 thing to PowerPc configuration
files in both trunk and etch branch.
It would be nice if someone could build from both trunk and etch branch
and test on PPC and report whether the workaround is needed or not.
