Bug#686861: debian-installer: kfreebsd requires larger MFS_ROOT

Package: src:debian-installer
Version: 20120712
Severity: grave
Tags: wheezy sid
User: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org
Usertags: kfreebsd
X-Debbugs-Cc: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org


Graphical install of kfreebsd-amd64 fails when processing
netcfg.templates and/or writing to /var/lib/debconf/templates.dat, with
error "Failed to load installer component: netcfg".

The ramdisk has insufficient space for something, the main-menu process
then crashes, and also core dumps (absolutely exhausting all remaining
space) and gets stuck in a loop trying to restart itself.

The current limit for kfreebsd-amd64 is 64m;  I'm not sure yet how large
this will need to be, but probably no more than 128m.

I imagine the limit also needs increasing for kfreebsd-i386 (untested
yet).  I guess this problem has been triggered by new debconf
translations being added.
