 kernel-package - A utility for building Linux kernel related Debian packages.
Closes: 115884 247782
 kernel-package (10.004) experimental; urgency=low
   * Bug fix: "using debconf", thanks to Robert Millan      (Closes: #115884)
   * Bug fix: "does not install non-interactively", thanks to Matt Kraai
                                                            (Closes: #247782)
   * This fine tunes the dependencies between targets. All of the package
     building targets are ones that insert themselves into the normal flow
     of policy specified targets, so they must hook themselves into the
     stream. That means, in essence, that they must depend on the configure
     and  corresponding build targets (with stamps) and ensure that the
     prep work is all done before they are invoked. The advantage is that
     nothing is going to be remade more often than it needs to. It also
     means we do not need to produce as many stamp files. So, the only
     dependencies on any of the intermediate targets are targets that have
     not been registered into the ladder created in rulesets/common/targets.mk
   * The kernel image maintainer scripts have been greatly
     changed. Firstly, they now use  debconf; and a number of questions
     have been moved to the config file (create-kimage-link-$version,
     old-initrd-link, old-dir-initrd-link, old-system-map-link) while
     others are asked conditionally in the postinst (depmod-error,
     depmod-error-initrd, bootloader-test-error, bootloader-error). The
     postinst has also become far less verbose; the users are far better
     educated a decade after this was written, and there are other sources
     of information about booting than the postinst of a kernel image.
   * The preinst also uses debconf. All the questions asked are still here
     -- we just use debconf to ask the user. Also, the priority, and need
     to break non-interactive installs was re-evaluated, and the preinst
     breaks in far fewer cases than it did before.
   * Second, the postinst gets rid of the code that generated boot floppies
     and created lilo.conf (that latter was probably illegal under current
     policy anyway). The do_boot_enable and do_boot_floppy configuration
     variables in /etc/kernel-img.conf are now invalid.
   * Also, the source tree is not automatically cleaned; the do_clean
     configuration variable, and the environment variable CLEAN_SOURCE are
     now control if the source tree is optionally cleaned after the kernel
     image package is built.
