Bug#655438: installation-reports: nilfs2 support

Package: installation-reports
Severity: wishlist
Tags: d-i

Dear Maintainer,

It would be nice to support nilfs2 as a option during installation.  It seems
that there are only two things that need to be done: Add nilfs2 to the list of
kernel modules, and get partman to support nilfs2.  I presume the first thing
is easy, but I do not know how hard the second is.

I worked around it by using a Debian Squeeze Live CD.  That allowed me to run
gparted to create the partitions, and then mkfs.nilfs2 to make the filesystems.
Otherwise, I just followed the instructions in Appendix D.3 "Installing Debian
GNU/Linux from a Unix/Linux System".  The only thing I had to special was to


to the file


and then run "update-initramfs -u" in the chroot.
