Package: debian-installer
Version: 20070308etch1
Severity: important

Our cluster nodes PXE boot with the following parameters:
	append initrd=debian/etch/DI/amd64/initrd.gz ramdisk_size=18000 root=/dev/rd/0 devfs=mount,dall rw console=ttyS0,57600n8 auto url= DEBIAN_FRONTEND=text locale=en_US priority=critical interface=auto netcfg/dhcp_timeout=60

The serial console works for the initial install but the generated
/boot/grub/menu.lst won't have a console line. Adding the older sarge-style d-i
boot parameters doesn't help, either:

debian-installer/console/type=serial debian-installer/console/serial/speed=57600

I've kludged around this in our preseed/late-command script:

chroot /target sed -i 's/kopt=.*$/& console=ttyS0,57600n8/g' /boot/grub/menu.lst

Although the effects are similar this doesn't appear to be related to #416310
since we're using the full serial console parameter.

Version: 1.22etch1

This bug has been fixed for etch in version 1.22etch1. 
grub-installer should now correctly handle "plain" options 
without parity/flow control parameters, and add the 
correct console= kernel options.
