Steve, any chance we could do that soonish? Since linux's ABI bump migrated to testing I chose to reupload d-i with that change, and reinstate block-udeb * until the release. I've just asked ftpmasters to dak copy-installer 20150911, which is what we should be using for d-i Stretch Alpha 3. > In the long term, we might want to add bootable support for the > remaining flavours, but I have no idea if they support booting over > a CD-ROM or USB image. Does someone known if we can do so on a > Loongson 3 or Octeon machine? (Leaving that part to mips porters.) Mraw, KiBi.
