Installed system ok:    [O]


Initial boot:
Systems will not boot off the CD image, because the ISO image is not built
with the correct directory structure.  The proper directory layout (and
needed mkisofs option) are detailed at this URL:

I was able to make a bootable CD using Debian's kernel/initrd/yaboot by
following those instructions detailed in the URL above.

Partition Hard drives:

After selecting the partition type of "PReP boot" in the partitioner, it
gave a weird message box ("???? ????"), and wouldn't start back up.  I had
to do the partitioning by hand in order to get this to work.

   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Merge from Ubuntu:
     - Document new $default_filesystem substitution and
       $default_filesystem{ } internal specifier in partman recipes.
   * Initial changes to target squeeze (see
     http://lists.debian.org/debian-release/2009/01/msg00682.html for its
     version number).
   * Add cdebconf-newt-terminal to most images that include
     cdebconf-newt-udeb (although not floppies).
   * Introduce *_SUPPORTED_EXTRA variables, which can be used to define
     "optional" supported targets. Use this to allow monolithic to be built
     without having to edit configuration files and without bloating official
   * Use os-prober-udeb rather than os-prober for powerpc monolithic target
     (thanks, Wartan Hachaturow).
   * Filter udeb dependencies based on Kernel-Version and Subarchitecture
     (closes: #490634).
   * Filter out packages that don't match KERNELVERSION from downloaded
     Packages files. Despite the above change, apt still seems to want to
     pull in multiple providers of virtual packages, which causes problems
   * Clear Dir::Etc::sourceparts in build/util/pkg-list, to match
   * Fix spelling of mdcfg in menu-item-numbers.txt.
   * Update menu-item-numbers.txt to account for architectures moving towards
     partman, and the merge of lvmcfg and mdcfg into partman-lvm and
     partman-md respectively.
   * Remove mention of autopartkit, removed in r52272.
   * Update design.txt to account for base-config's removal (!).
   * Add some notes on recommended use of debhelper in d-i, based on my
     conversion of most packages to dh(1).
   * Update porting.txt for partman changes (default_disk_label moved to
   * Update references to svn.d-i.alioth.debian.org to refer to
     svn.debian.org instead.
   * cdebconf has had the PROGRESS extension nearly forever; update
     retriever.txt to mention it.
   [ Martin Michlmayr ]
   * Remove support for the old arm port.
   * Convert the Thecus N2100 image to an initramfs.
   * Include minix-modules on the orion5x image for the D-Link DNS-323,
     thanks Matt Palmer.
   * Generate images for the D-Link DNS-323 and Conceptronic CH3SNAS,
     thanks Matt Palmer.  Closes: #503040.
   * Use the 2.6.29 kernel on armel, mips and mipsel.
   * Use the 2.6.30-2 kernel on armel.
   * Add images for the Marvell Kirkwood platform, including support for:
     - QNAP TS-119, TS-219 and TS-219P
     - Marvell OpenRD-Base and OpenRD-Client
     - Marvell SheevaPlug
   * Change the MAC address stored in the u-boot environment on the QNAP
     TS-119, TS-219 and TS-219P.
   * Remove Broadcom SWARM (sb1-bcm91250a) support since since few devices
     remain out there and debian-installer support is likely broken anyway.
   * Remove Broadcom Bigsur (sb1a-bcm91480b) support since debian-installer
     support never worked.
   [ Wartan Hachaturow ]
   * Add CHRP boot structure on ISO images, Closes: #411728, #411203.
   * Add monolithic support for powerpc64.
   * Use 2.6.29 kernel on powerpc/powerpc64.
   [ Otavio Salvador ]
   * Bump kernels to use new 2.6.26-2 kernels.
   [ Christian Perrier ]
   * Add needed characters for Kirghiz.
   * Take care to drop System.map after moving the kernel to the top of the
     tree and before removing the /boot directory there.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Drop support for the ppc64 architecture.
   [ Stephen R. Marenka ]
   * Move m68k to 2.6.29-1.
   [ dann frazier ]
   * Use 2.6.29-2 kernel on ia64.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Switch to 2.6.29-2 kernel for hppa.
   [ Ian Campbell ]
   * Add netboot-xen images for amd64.
   * Add cdrom-xen images for i386 and amd64.
   [ Otavio Salvador ]
   * Switch to 2.6.29-2 kernel for amd64 and i386.
   [ Aurelien Jarno ]
   * Use back mklibs instead of mklibs-copy on mips and mipsel now that
     they work again.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Implement version 2.0 of syslinux framework for x86. Basically this
     backports the structure already implemented in debian-cd before the
     release of Lenny to D-I (allowing to simplify the code in debian-cd).
     Main changes:
     - enhance templates to support selecting a default desktop environment
     - support four types of syslinux configuration by setting SYSLINUX_CFG
     - allow to define alternative default desktop environment (DESKTOP)
     - split out rescue options as those are independent of desktop selection
     - simplify setting correct directory to kernel/initrd for debian-cd
   * Using the new framework, users can now also select an alternative desktop
     environments from the boot menu for netboot/miniiso-based installs.
   * sparc: display message for unsupported subarchitectures (mini.iso).
   [ Otavio Salvador ]
   * Update alpha, amd64, armel, hppa, i386, mips, mipsel, powerpc and sparc
     to 2.6.30-1.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Update s390 to 2.6.30-1 using -s390x (64-bits) kernel.
   * Use printf instead of 'echo -en' to create win32-loader.ini.
     Closes: #539933.
   [ Max Vozeler ]
   * build/Makefile: Support ROOTCMD with fallback to fakeroot unless
     overriden or already running as root.
   [ Luca Favatella ]
   * Handle libc0.1 (GNU/kFreeBSD) and libc0.3 (GNU/Hurd) as libc6/libc6.1.
   * Add ufs1 initrd support. Thanks to Robert Millan and Thorsten Glaser.
   * Add kfreebsd-i386 monolithic config files. Thanks to Robert Millan.
   * Use arch independent code for LSB_DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION.
   * Use grub to boot kfreebsd-* d-i CD. Thanks to Robert Millan.
   * Use makefs to generate the image. Thanks to Thorsten Glaser.
   [ Aurelien Jarno ]
   * Add kfreebsd-i386 netboot config files.
   * Add kfreebsd-amd64 config files.
   * Share code between kfreebsd-*
   * Add a splash screen for kfreebsd-*.
   [ Otavio Salvador ]
   * Move hppa, i386, amd64, alpha, mipsel, s390, ia64, mips, powerpc
     and sparc to Linux kernel 2.6.31-2 ABI.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Change default video mode for i386/amd64 to vga=788 for installations
     using the "newt" frontend. This forces the framebuffer to VESA and will
     thereby solve problems reported on various HP notebooks with the vga16fb
     driver. It also increases the screen size and thus allows more information
     to be displayed. Closes: #471505.
   * [s390] Add localechooser to initrd for generic target (see #316006).
   * Implement clean method to include udebs from proposed-updates for builds
     for stable and testing.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Remove upx from build-deps, has not been used for over a year.
   [ Otavio Salvador ]
   * Disable GTK+ based images due #557387. This ought to be reverted
     once GTK+ DFB backend is fixed.
