There's no UDEB for hfsprogs which would allow handling HFS from the

Please file a bug against hfsprogs if we need a udeb although it could be
that this bug report gets rejected because powerpc and ppc64 are not
release architectures.

But during your installation the hfsprogs package couldn't be located,
making `mk-hfs-bootstrap` unable to perform its task which also makes
`d-i/grub-installer` exiting before finishing the GRUB installation.

hfsprogs should be in /target or grub-installer should install it there
if it's not in /target yet. But again, grub-ofpathname needs to be fixed
but I don't have the time.


Anyone know what was the last working Debian installer for ppc64? I mean
the network installer which John Paul Adrian Glaubitz crafted for us. I
would just use that and then set it aside with a big label on it that
says "works as expected".  Then be real careful when running any sort of
update and avoid hfsprogs and grub entirely.  At least for a while.  Two
years or so maybe.
