Package: base-installer Severity: minor This is actually an issue in/with kernel-package, but we may need/want to work around it in base-installer. Suppose base-installer has already been run, but we start it again, accepting the fact that target is non-clean. When a kernel image package is installed for a kernel that is already installed, kernel-package will show a dialog warning that the module directory already exists. It asks whether it should stop, with a default of true. Because the default is true and base-installer is working non-interactive, the kernel install gets aborted and base-installer fails. The template is named: linux-image-<ver>-<abi>-<flav>/preinst/overwriting-modules-<ver>-<abi>-<flav> Complication is of course that in most cases we're installing the linux-image-2.6 meta package and not the package with the actual kernel. Hmmm. This issue should solve itself with my multi CD changes as that will make apt-install interactive and will thus just show the dialog :-)
