Package: debian-installer
Version: 4.0r1

When installing from hd-media boot image on a USB stick which has been
partitioned, the ISO image is not found.

I tracked the problem down to the interaction between iso-scan.postinst
and list-devices. 'list-devices partition' will not find partitions on
USB sticks that detect as floppies, and 'list-devices floppy' will only
show the USB stick device, not any partitions it may have.

My workaround was to cause 'list-devices partition' to also list
partitions on USB floppies. This got the job done, but it's probably not
suitable for release as it confused the partitioner and slowed it down
quite a bit. Someone more familiar with the various interactions with
list-devices should come up with a better idea.

 debian-installer-utils (1.50) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * register-module: remove support for obsolete modutils and for no longer
     used type chandev.
   * apt-install: support CD/DVD changing by using debconf-apt-progress.
     To make media changing possible, the installation CD is unmounted in the
     D-I environment and reloaded after the package installation is finished.
     This change also makes apt-install use the passthrough instead of the
     noninteractive frontend.
     Requires debconf (1.5.16).
   * chroot-setup.sh: unconditionally check for and mount /target/sys.
   [ Otavio Salvador ]
   * list-devices: use pendrive as floppy workaround while probing
     partitions. Closes: #440301.
   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Just test whether /etc/apt/sources.list exists, not whether it's a file.
     I got a bug report involving a package that made /etc/apt/sources.list
     be a symlink to an absolute path which of course doesn't exist in the
     installer environment...
