Package: network-preseed
Version 1.01

Actually more general (are comma separated lists allowed above? the
docs (http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting) say nothing on this):

Package: Binary packages file-preseed and network-preseed from source
package preseed and/or whatever system decides which binary packages
get included on the root floppy initrd vs which packages get fetched by

Versions: both 1.01 (Nov 18 2004 sarge install floppy images) and 1.02
(Mar 11 2005 current source code and Mar 2 2005 "current" floppy

network-preseed and file-preseed packages are only added to the install
system by download-installer, which is run by main-menu at
XB-Installer-Menu-Item: 23, but they themselves have
XB-Installer-Menu-Item: 21 (network-preseed) and 14 (file-preseed), and
so get sorted into the menu before download and are not executed any

This bug is somewhat similar in nature (but not identical) to #288053.
In #288053 the XB-Installer-Menu-Item numbers need correcting (run ssh
config after download), while here the XB-Installer-Menu-Item numbers
seem to be sensible (so that one can preseed mirrors before
downloading!). So here the 2 packages network-preseed and file-preseed
need to be available before downloading, i.e. come from the root floppy

Cheap and nasty fix: Resequence these 2 packages to after 23

Better but possibly more involved fix: Include these 2 packages on the
root floppy initrd. As they are each only 10k and their only dependency
(preseed-common) is already there, this should have an acceptable space

Thanks for your report.
Closing as it's an installation report from Sarge which isn't supported
Feel free to test and report any issues against the current debian
installer release (Squeeze RC1) which supports more hardware and also
it's improved.


Melhores cumprimentos/Best regards,

Miguel Figueiredo
