Package: cdimage.debian.org
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable


Hi,

while trying to install Debian Lenny on a Pegasos2 box, i needed to find out
that it is missing the grub-of package on the CD, which leaves me without a
boot-loader after the installation. :(

Greetings,
Martin

Hmmm. I can add it, but it's quite a large package along with
grub-ieee1275 that it depends on. That'll end up pushing other stuff
off CD#1, which is already full of important packages AFAICS. I
understand it breaks the pegasos2 installation for you; how is it
likely to affect other powerpc machines? Are they all going to be
broken?

Just for the record: wheezy installs fine on Pegasos II machines,
without grub.

  Getting a SCSI chain working is perfectly simple if you remember that there
  must be exactly three terminations: one on one end of the cable, one on the
  far end, and the goat, terminated over the SCSI chain with a silver-handled
  knife whilst burning *black* candles. --- Anthony DeBoer
