Subject: live-build: bootparameters can't accept | chars
Date: Thu, 29 Nov 2012 15:26:50 +0100
Package: live-build
Version: 3.0~a67-1
Severity: normal

Hash: SHA256

In the boot parameter arguments we can include multiple hooks to run
using the | character as seen in the file 9990-hooks in live-config
package, but when this option is passed from --bootappend-live in
live-build, the build fails in the binary-grub* steps because there's a
sed command using something like:

sed "s|foo|bar|"

error message in live-build building the iso is:

sed: -e expresión #1, carácter 195: opción desconocida para `s'
