Comments/Problems:

I hit the following problems:

As well as #392858, the ppp-udeb.postinst script has a number of
other bugs. (ppp-udeb 2.4.4rel-2)

On line 34, the $P needs to be somewhere other than directly between
the -I and the $1, as when $P has the value -U, pppoe-discovery
tries to use the ethernet device -U, which fails.

Also on line 34, the file stderr is redirected to is /tmp/ppp-errors
but for the rest of the file this is referred to as /tmp/ppp-error,
causing detection of the timeouts to fail.

I suspect the rm -f /tmp/probe-finished on line 31 probably should be
a rm -f /tmp/probe-finished /tmp/ppp-error and moved to before line 34
so the script doesn't detect timeouts from a previous loop iteration.

There's a typo on line 39 "Timout".

Line 51 (log probe-finished) prolly should be outside the while [ ! -f /tmp/probe-finished ]

It'd be nice if pppoe-discovery returned immediately on detection of
any PPPoE Access Concentrator, rather than continuing to listen for
further reponses, as it is being used only to determine if any access
concentrators are out there.

This'd reduce false timeout logs.

Anyway, with these fixes, it seems to work OK, although the resolv.conf test on
line 196 also seemed to fail for me after the pppoe detection had succeeded but
ppp failed to dial up, so I suspect that -e is the wrong test. (I'm guessing
it's returning false for a dangling symlink) or the ln -s should be ln -sf.

Even though the script returned failure, the link came up and things worked.

==

The HPT370 problem comes up because GRUB uses a hard disk sector which the
HPT370 BIOS uses for its own purposes.

The hard solution is to have the stage1_5 file (or the equivalent under grub2,
both suffer this problem) write to a later sector.

The easy solution would be to detect if we're installing grub onto a HPT370
disk, and use the Debian MBR with grub installed onto the /boot partition as
when doing multiboot.

Details of the grub/HPT370 conflict at [1], and the hard fix at [2]. I couldn't
see an obvious way to do the hard fix using the install-grub scripts, nor how
it all works under grub2.

There's also a relevant thread at [3]... Apparently RedHat has patched their
grub to detect and work around this... I haven't confirmed this, and I think
the "easy solution" above is prolly a cleaner fix in this case.

This bug manifests as an Error 17 (for me) or error 21 (seen on google) on
rebooting, after everything appears to be working fine.  If someone has a RAID
array set up, it'll prolly manifest as the array losing it's 'nana. ^_^

[3] http://www.mail-archive.com/bug-grub@gnu.org/msg09759.html

Yes, this bug has been open but uncommented on since 2003... -_-

==

I didn't format the xfs partition with d-i, as the wiki
suggested that was broken, and I'd already had to reinstall
once due to changing from another board to the HPT370 board.

Hi,

similar to the installation-reports bugs, I'm closing the grub-installer reports 
below.

These are reports for Debian 4 / 6 / 7 / 9 where grub-installer fails (for 
various reasons).


There have been numerous changes/improvements on this topics in the past, and 
also because of the age of the reports we should consider these problems as 
being fixed (or it is even reported in the bugs that they are fixed).
They are most likely of no use anymore for recent releases.

If you know, that the issue you reported (and gets closed here) is still 
existing in recent installation images, please file a new report for that with 
up-to-date details!

Thank you for filing these bug reports, they have been very useful at the time 
they were filed!
