Subject: debian-installer: kfreebsd-9 CD gtk install menuentries broken
Date: Thu, 06 Sep 2012 19:21:31 +0100
Package: src:debian-installer
Version: 20120327
Severity: important
Tags: wheezy sid patch
Usertags: kfreebsd


The GRUB menu entries for a graphical install with the GNU/kFreeBSD 9.0
kernel do not actually select the graphical mode.

Due to a typo or copy+pasto this has been broken since kfreebsd-9
support was first introduced, but is more noticable now that kfreebsd-9
became the default kernel and other bugs have been fixed.

Please kindly apply this correction:

Closes: 684473 686858 686861
 debian-installer (20120930) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Samuel Thibault ]
   * Drop outdated documentation about brltty.
   * Add console-setup-linux-fonts-udeb to speakup-enabled images
     (closes: #684473).
   * Document that new languages need to specify a console-setup font name to
     be loaded.
   * Pull netdde-udeb instead of nic-modules on hurd-i386, the former providing
     the latter does not seem enough.
   [ Cyril Brulebois ]
   * Apply patch from Paul Tagliamonte, updating the Joy pictures to use
     the correct brand; the Debian logo is now DFSG free.
   * When SPLASH_PNG is set, search for a matching SPLASH_SVG; if it's
     found, call rsvg-convert to generate the PNG file. Clean those on
     reallyclean. Add librsvg2-bin build-dep for rsvg-convert, restricted
     to any-{amd64,i386} (splash is used on x86, kfreebsd, and hurd).
   * Remove build/boot/{x86,kfreebsd,hurd}/pics/joy-hurd.png accordingly.
   * Fix broken kfreebsd-9 CD gtk install menuentry (add gtk/), thanks to
     Steven Chamberlain (Closes: #686858).
   * Bump MFSROOT_LIMIT from 64m to 128m for kfreebsd-amd64, thanks to Steven
     Chamberlain (Closes: #686861).
   * Add myself to Uploaders.
   [ Aurelien Jarno ]
   * Install wheezy by default instead of sid on armhf and s390x.
   [ Steve McIntyre ]
   * Add EFI support:
     - Add code to create bootable EFI images.
     - Add definitions for amd64 and i386 (disabled for the latter).
     - Add grub-efi.cfg
     - Add build-deps: grub-efi-{amd64,i386}-bin, grub-common, xorriso.
