debian-cd (3.1.4) unstable; urgency=low
[ Frans Pop ]
* Cleanup of packages included for bootable CDs (generate_d-i+k_list):
- libsysfs2 workaround is no longer needed;
- discover is no longer used anywhere;
- include grub-legacy instead of grub;
- pcmcia-cs has been fully replaced with pcmciautils.
* Exclude udebs for X.Org-based version of the Graphical Installer.
* Excluding reiserfs4 udebs is not needed for Squeeze.
* Include pciutils on installation CDs.
* Only include a symlink for the suite actually specified in the
Release file. Closes: #590993
[ Karl Goetz ]
* Rename log.sort_deps* to sort_deps*.log for better consistency.
* Minor tweaks to Debian packaging to make lintian happy.
* Minor whitespace/wording fixes for the README file. Closes: #592933
* Change the default for NORECOMMENDS to 1 for consistency with
NOSUGGESTS. Closes: #598196
* Documentation patches
[ Steve McIntyre ]
* Rename log.add_packages to add_packages.log
* Add dependency on dpkg-dev for dpkg-architecture. Closes: #574879
* Add support for forcing firmware packages onto CD#1:
+ Add "FORCE_FIRMWARE=1" to CONF.sh to turn this on
+ Will pick up on packages in the "firmware" task and install them
+ Will also add sym-links to them in CD1/firmware so that new d-i code
can find them easily.
+ Will add a short sentence into README.html/README.txt
* Add top-level control of which checksums are desired for output images
see the CHECKSUMS setting in CONF.sh
* Fix some bashisms in tools/apt-selection.
* When generating both iso and jigdo files, make sure that the iso files
are at least as new as the jigdo files, as this helps people mirroring.
* On release builds, use the full version number including all the dots
(e.g. 6.0.0 for the squeeze release instead of 600).
* Update loadlin kernel parameters to match d-i values. Thanks to Samuel
Thibault for the patch. Closes: #594267
* Fix support for alternative boot splash images. Thanks to Tony Awtrey
for the patch. Closes: #537368
* Include the acpi package for all x86 media types. Closes: #475243
* Include the wpasupplicant package on netinsts and larger. Closes: #593914
* Include kbd on first CD rather than console-tools. Closes: #514654
* Added dedication to Frans Pop.
[ Ian Campbell ]
* boot-x86: detect duplicates in the extra images used for installation
and replace with hard links.
* CONF.sh: Don't reset the value of $VARIANTS by default.
[ Aurelien Jarno ]
* Add support for the kfreebsd ports. Closes: #593629
* Add debian-ports-archive-keyring-udeb and
emdebian-archive-keyring-udeb to the exclude list - they should be in
the initrd already.
* Don't exclude reiserfsprogs-udeb, as rescue-mode depends on it.
[ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
* Support replacing the g-i image with ones own image. Closes: #601189
[ Holger Levsen ]
* Start work on Debian Edu images.
[ Otavio Salvador ]
* squeeze: include zlib-modules for i386 images
