Package: debian-cd Version: 3.0.2 Severity: minor The boot-hppa script currently has: add_mkisofs_opt $CDROOT/../$1.mkisofs_opts "-hppa-cmdline '0/vmlinux,root=/dev/ram,initrd=0/ramdisk,ramdisk_size=$RSIZE"' During interaction with the HPPA bootloader this results in the following being displayed: '0/vmlinux root=/dev/ram initrd=0/ramdisk ramdisk_size=13890' console=ttyS0 TERM=vt102 0: '0/vmlinux 1: root=/dev/ram 2: initrd=0/ramdisk 3: ramdisk_size=13890' 4: console=ttyS0 5: TERM=vt102 Note the quotes in lines 0 and 3. After the installer has been booted we get this: # cat /proc/cmdline root=/dev/ram ramdisk_size=13890' console=ttyS0 TERM=vt102 palo_kernel=0'0/vmlinux I currently don't see any bad effects from this, but would like to add support for KERNEL_PARAMS, which could result in for example: # cat /proc/cmdline root=/dev/ram ramdisk_size=13890 desktop=xfce' ... Which in turn results in the following in the cdebconf database: Name: tasksel/desktop Template: debian-installer/dummy Value: xfce'"' Which _is_ likely to break things. Not sure how this could be solved. Possibly this is a mkisofs bug rather than a debian-cd one.
