Debian Installer Status Update - August 31th 2007

Hash: SHA1

New stuff
- ---------

 * New virtual package 'keyboard-setup' has been introduced to allow
   easy testing of console-setup. Previously, auto-install forced
   kbd-chooser to get in the image.

 * Default to not using a mirror if the user selected to not configure
   the network in netcfg.

 * Integrate win32-loader utility.

Resolved breakage in daily builds
- ---------------------------------

 * amd64 CD images had problems on boot script that has been fixed.

 * multiarch (i386, amd64) CD images failed to build due same boot
   script bug from amd64 CD images above and are now fixed too.

 * arm (ads_cf) had a build-failure has been resolved.
Currently broken daily builds
- -----------------------------

 * m68k has a build-failure on the floppy flavours due a full-disk.

 * mips and mipsel builds are still broken.

 * The installation problem due the missing symbols still exists in
   some architectures since the conflict between libc-dev and
   linux-libc-dev (IIUC) isn't resolved yet (#434040).

 * sparc lenny CD images are failing due a lack of image on the
   mirror. The cause of it is the sparc32 removal.

   still there.

 * Regressions in cleaning old LVM partitions (#425829) unfixed as

 * newt has issues with time changing (#436497) which has broken
   clock-setup when updating time during installation (#436340).

 * console-setup has problems with Esperanto language due a lack of
   unicore/PVA.pl module on perl-base (#437142).

Kernel status
- -------------

 * linux-modules-di-m68k-2.6 isn't uploaded due the lack of loop-aes
   and squashfs since linux-headers lack modules.lds files (#402061).

 * hppa has been switched to 2.6.21 but the kernel is currently
   affected by #431773, #427398, #433768 - all marked as pending.

 * sparc kernel seems to produces unkillable processes (#433187).

Installation Images
- -------------------

 * netinst images are huge due debian-cd inclusion of excluded packages
   dependencies (#410418).

 * weekly CD builds for sparc are broken.
