AFAICT from the current manpage, when this option is not specified, WWID are used instead, so there's no need to keep the [0-9] part in the check, right? This seems confirmed by my reading of #806900 so I think I'll push the patch to master right away. > On the people/cyphermox/mpath-detect branch in the d-i/hw-detect > repository, there is already a patch for the same problem.

Unfortunately lack of manpower means patches are sometimes not reviewed or merged for a long time. :( > Apart from the disk-detect package, the partman-multipath package is > also affected by mpath naming change. I will open a separate bug report > and attach a patch to solve the naming there. I'll try and look at the various patches after Mathieu's reply in #806900. I might even propose them through proposed-updates if the next RC looks good for multipath support. KiBi.
