Subject: dpkg: dselect doesnt show describtion for obsolete packages
To: submit@bugs.debian.org
X-Mailer: bug 3.1.2

Package: dpkg

dselect is showing for obsolete packages (non-us, some older ones, local
installed) the line "package - no describtion available" and in the info
window, and in the select window the <Description> is empty. But if I press
'i' i get the Package-file Entries, including a Describtion.

If it is intentional that dselct doesnt display Describtion for obsolete
PAckages, it would be better to print something like "Obsolete PAckage,
press 'i' for Describtion"

Hello, a while ago you reported a problem with the Debian Installer. I
think that your problem is fixed in the just released beta 3 of the
installer. If you're still able to install to the hardware you tried it on,
please download it from http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/, and
try it again. Feel free to file another installation report.

A few of the new features of beta 3 include:

  - new easy to use partitioner that supports automatic partitioning and LVM
  - grub as the default boot loader on i386
  - wireless networking support
  - 2.4.25 kernel, with SATA support and security fixes
  - support for the XFS filesystem

Note that your original installation report may have been split up into
multiple individual bug reports. If so this message closes only one bug,
and not other issues you reported.
