Bug#675391: crosshurd doesn't install gnumach kernel, maybe because of changed package names
I ran crosshurd from Debian Squeeze. It didn't install the gnumach kernel under /boot/gnumach.gz in the target
partition, as it should. Therefore crosshurd fails to install a working GNU/Hurd system.
I think it has something to do with the fact, that the package "gnumach" is now a dummy transitional package,
while the current package for GNU Mach is now "gnumach-image-1.3.99-486". Actually this package was downloaded but not
A similar problem with package names, which has been reported in bugreport #670828 (package "diff" is now "diffutils"),
also appears in this version of crosshurd.
