What scripts are being run to generate that log? It doesn't appear to
be an svn version of debian-cd, or any released version of debian-cd. I
don't know what is generating the error messages at the end of the log,
so I can't suggest how to fix it. It looks like whatever script is
being used needs changing to cope with the hppa kernel rename.
In the same directory is a "1etchhppa" which does appear to be generated
by an svn version of debian-cd (or a newer than 2.2.23 version, anyway).
