Package: debian-installer
Version: lenny

I've been trying to get a reliable fully automatic netboot install.
The default value of netcfg/dhcp_timeout is rather too short for this
kind of application so I decided to increase it to 150.

Experimentation shows that values of greater than around 60 are
ineffective.  They affect the progress indication (which is based on %
of the specified timeout) but after about 60s it fails anyway (perhaps
with the progress indicator nowhere near 100%).

I've done tests with values of (unset), 5, 60, 150, and 500, timing
the results against a wall clock, and the effect seems to be
consistent with an upper effective value of a little more than 60s.

I conjecture that there are two parallel timeout mechanisms, one of
which is controlled by netcfg/dhcp_timeout, but the other of which is
fixed at 60 (or perhaps 65s - my timings are by eye so I'm not certain
of the exact value).

I don't have a record of the versions I downloaded but here are the
MD5 checksums:

If it would help to try a new version please let me know.

   * On Linux, feed the output of 'ip addr show' into /dev/random after the
     network is up to improve entropy. Idea picked up from Theodore Y. Ts'o,
   * Upgrade to debhelper v7.
   * Tell dhclient to wait for netcfg/dhcp_timeout seconds before exiting
     (closes: #566006, LP: #315231).
   [ Otavio Salvador ]
   * Use busybox' udhcpc by default but kfreebsd-amd64 and kfreebsd-i386
