I've added a check to make sure this is only done for lenny and not for eg, squeeze. I now see the user help in this feature, but I dislike that the user is not asked. But being able to use the hardware is a feature many people defnitly want ;-) But I've got some more comments: > > + aptitude -t lenny-backports install debian-backports-keyring does this work non-interactivly? (installing a package from a new repo) in general, what happens if backports.org is down or the latest kernel package breaks installation, the code should make sure not to make the installation fail. "|| true" at least. also, if the installation of the kernel fails (because it's on another Debian arch or whatever) backports.org should be removed from sources.list. and i would really prefer a question using the debconf interface if this should be done at all. some people prefer staying close to Debian, because they dont use that feature of the hardware (for example, a mediapc with unused wlan hw being used as server where a more stable kernel is more important). > I think this is a way too far reaching change at this stage of the release > process, even if it _should_ only run on specific machines. I'm still thinking about this. What do you think? cheers, Holger
