    it later on.
  * Update translation-status for the release.

  [ Adam Conrad ]
  * build/util/efi-image: Fix up FAT filesystem size calculation:
    - We appear to need 32k headroom, not 24k; this was masked
      by rounding errors and blind luck until grub grew 1.5kB.
    - Break out the magic headroom number into 32+31 to match
      the comment and make the arithmetic more obvious to read.
    - Round file sizes up, not down, so we don't break in future.

  [ Aurelien Jarno ]
  * Stop excluding libc{0.1,0.3,6,6.1} as we now use mklibs-copy for the
    reduction pass. This avoids dropping libnss libraries and also avoids a
    useless download of this udeb during the installation.

    correct one.

  * Build cdrom flavour for ARM64.

  [ Cyril Brulebois ]
  * Deal with even more incompatible changes on the syslinux side by
    adding a syslinux-utils build-dep (Closes: #751731), no thanks to its
    maintainer as far as cooperation is concerned (See: #751724, #759189).
  * Bump linux kernel version from 3.14-2 to 3.16-2.
  * Drop code snippet meant to ensure every checkout would get an updated
    sources.list.udeb (with [trusted=yes]), since that was meant to be
    temporary, and that was almost 2 years ago.
  * Replace ttf-kannada-fonts-udeb with fonts-knda-udeb.
  * Specify -j1 for the submake definition in build/Makefile; that's what

    additional modules in the grub-mkimage step: (Closes: #759686)
    - tftp: required since GRUB 2.02 otherwise PXE boot will crash/hang
    - gfxterm_background: required since GRUB 2.02 for the boot splash
      image functionality to be available
    - raise the grub-pc (and indirectly grub-common) build dependency to
      >= 2.02~beta2~ on these architectures, because module
      gfxterm_background did not exist in GRUB 2.00
    - raise the xorriso build dependency to >= 1.3.2-1~ on these
      architectures, for compatibility with grub-mkrescue in GRUB 2.02

  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Remove desktop selection from syslinux; now available in tasksel.

                (libcom32.c32, libutil.c32, and also ldlinux.c32).
  * Exclude .gitignore files in the dh_installdocs call to avoid spurious
    files when building from a git checkout.
  * Disable translation-status check when proposed-updates is enabled.
    This file isn't going to be updated during stable's lifecycle, so
    avoid pointless warning and sleeping.
  * Update translation-status for the release.

  [ Samuel Thibault ]
  * Add a separate Hurd boot option for CJK support in pseudo-graphical mode, so

  * Improve build/config/common to use target distribution from changelog to
    download the correct udebs.
  * Update syslinux setup to be (theoretically) compatible with syslinux 6 (as
    packaged by Kali... Debian experimental diverges a lot).
  * Use kernel 3.14-kali1.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Add SSL_CERTS variable, which can be used to build images with embedded
    SSL certificates with c_rehash run over them so that OpenSSL can see
    them (LP: #833994).

  [ Cyril Brulebois ]
  * build/Makefile: Use $(GZIP) instead of gzip, and prefer pigz over
    gzip if it's available, which can give a nice speed-up.
  * Update boot config/screens for the default desktop change (GNOME → Xfce)
    in tasksel 3.19 (Closes: #738602).
  * Update copyright years in boot screens.
  * Bump linux kernel version from 3.12-1 to 3.13-1.
  * build/config/{amd64,i386}.cfg: Remove old "video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr" option
    from VIDEO_MODE_GTK (See: #395040). DirectFB apparently needed those at
    some point. Let's see whether letting the kernel do its job just works.
  * build/Makefile: Add “| sort” after some find calls, to reduce entropy
    and notably to make build logs more easily post-processable.
  * build/Makefile: Move the drop_lang definition to the top of the file to
    deal with incompatible changes in make 3.82 leading to the following
    error: “recipe commences before first target” (Closes: #720719).
  * build/README: Mention USE_UDEBS_FROM in the recipe at the top, and add a
    pointer to debian/rules in its documentation (Closes: #653513).
  * Remove iop32x flavour on armel since support has been dropped from the
    linux package (in 3.13-1~exp1).
  * config/kfreebsd.cfg: Put xorriso's -J flag after “--” to work around
    grub-mkrescue's change in option handling (See: #741656).
  * Update translation-status for the release.

  * Bump kfreebsd-10 from unstable ABI to 10.0-1.

  [ Samuel Thibault ]
  * Upgrade hurd kernel to 1.4
  * Add usb key boot support for kfreebsd & hurd images. This needs another
    grub image, grub_embed, which has to be very small. Add x86-image script,
    similar to efi-image script, with factorized grub-cpmodules part, to build
    minimal grub images with iso9660 and biosdisk support, and put GRUB modules
    on the ISO image.  grub.cfg thus now has to explicitly load modules.
  * Also build initrd for hurd Xen target.
  * Add base infrastructure for kfreebsd Xen images.

  * Implement version 2.0 of syslinux framework for x86. Basically this
    backports the structure already implemented in debian-cd before the
    release of Lenny to D-I (allowing to simplify the code in debian-cd).
    Main changes:
    - enhance templates to support selecting a default desktop environment
    - support four types of syslinux configuration by setting SYSLINUX_CFG
    - allow to define alternative default desktop environment (DESKTOP)
    - split out rescue options as those are independent of desktop selection
    - simplify setting correct directory to kernel/initrd for debian-cd
  * Using the new framework, users can now also select an alternative desktop
    environments from the boot menu for netboot/miniiso-based installs.

  [ Frans Pop ]
  * Change default video mode for i386/amd64 to vga=788 for installations
    using the "newt" frontend. This forces the framebuffer to VESA and will
    thereby solve problems reported on various HP notebooks with the vga16fb
    driver. It also increases the screen size and thus allows more information
    to be displayed. Closes: #471505.

    Closes: #505750.
  * Rename syslinux adamd*.cfg files to amdad*.cfg.
  * Rename syslinux *text.cfg files to *txt.cfg. This is needed because
    adamdtext.cfg is one character too long which means it was never actually
    included in the menu for multi-arch images.

  [ Franklin Piat ]
  * Add help text for help option in graphical syslinux boot menu to indicate
    how to return to the menu from the help screens.
    The new configuration also improves editing the command line from the

  * Support coming cdebconf frontend changes.
  * Bump build dependency for mklibs.

  * Stop using the system status file; generate a dummy status file for apt
    containing libc6 and libnewt (the only two debs udebs still depend on).
  * dhcp3-client-udeb is for some reason Standard priority, so gets included
    in monolithic image builds (and breaks the build). Exclude it from the
    monolithic images until its priority is fixed.
  * The i386 boot floppy will be too big with the 2.6.18 kernel, so drop
    usb input modules from it. USB keyboard support didn't work before
    anyway AFAICS, since usb-discover was not included.
  * With 2.6.18, nic-extra-modules gets too big to fit on the i386
    net-drivers-1 floppy with nic-modules. Move nic-extra-modules to
    net-drivers-2 and reorg to fit.

  [ Frans Pop ]
  * Switch amd64, hppa, sparc and s/390 to 2.6.18-3.
  * On amd64 we temporarily need to include /lib/ in g-i initrds
    to work around #373253 until upstream can remove pthread_cancel() calls in
    directfb. Because of the Etch release this is implemented for now by
    setting EXTRAFILES in the relevant files under config/amd64.

    on Altix systems, though it cannot be used with 2.4 kernels

  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Remove udev-udeb from the ADS cf image.
  * Rename gtk-miniiso targets to netboot-gtk, and place the resulting files
    under the netboot/gtk/ directory. Add full set of netboot files for the
    gtk image, not just the mini.iso. The gtk-miniiso directories are kept
    working via symlinks for now, so that we won't have to update the docs so
    late in the release process. Closes: #408535

  * Add support for armel. Symlink most arm configs to avoid duplication.
  * Add libgcc1 to the udeb exclude list, and add a dummy item for it to the
    status file. This supports armel, which already uses glibc 2.5, and will
    be needed later when other arches switch to it.

    will choose the correct device depending on whether the NPE microcode
    is available.

  * Make amd64 consitently use initramfs images.
  * Drop 2.4 support for i386.
  * Merge most differences between i386 and amd64 configs. Only remaining
    difference is that floppy support is still desirable (though not
    present) for i386.
  * Build gtk isolinux initrd as part of the build process for the
    regular isolinux image, so that it will be included properly in the
    isolinux files.
  * Switch i386 to 2.6.17-2.
  * Remove root=/dev/ram from syslinux configs, turns out not to be needed for
    the kernel to find initramfs.
  * Remove ramdisk_size= and "rw" settings, also not needed.
  * Which means that ramdisk-size-subst is not needed for x86; removed
    calls to it.

  * Switch powerpc 2.6 images to initramfs (closes: #385175).

  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Switch KERNELMAJOR to 2.6 for ads images, since that the most likely
    kernel used.
  * Include pcmciautils on ads cf image, but keep pcmcia-cs on there too, on
    the off chance that a 2.4 kernel is used with it.

  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Split off PRESEED_SUITE from PRESEED, use this for the suite setting
    for development builds, and no longer unset PRESEED for release builds.
    Should fix cobalt issues.
  * Audited the x86 kernel parameter docs in the boot screens vs the 2.6.15
    kernel. Removed documentation for parameters that are not listed in the
    kernel's kernel-parameters.txt, and to a certian extent read the source
    to find places where kernel-parameters.txt is wrong, and removed those
    too. It's probably better to not document things than to document them
  * Modified kernel parameter docs to use the module.param=value syntax
    for all parameters that are owned by a loadable kernel module. The old
    param=value at the boot line won't work, since d-i doesn't pass kernel
    command line to modules. The new syntax requires rootskel 1.30 to work.
    (Not sure what module(s) own hd=, didn't change it yet.)
  * Remove docs for how to disable gdth, which harks back to a non-modular

  * Rename all needed-character files to *.utf to simplify Makefile.
  * Remove 2.6 references from hppa config as 2.6 is now default; keep
    EXTRANAME=2.6/ for now in order to not break debian-cd.

  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Remove build dep on libdebian-installer4 now that all udeb deps are fixed
  * Update i386 to 2.6.16.
  * Copy library .so links from library-providing udebs into the udeblib
    directory along with the library files, otherwise mklibs doesn't see them.
    (Crossing fingers that this change, which has been tried once before,
    doesn't break something..)
  * Remove build dep on libdebconfclient0 since all relevant udeb deps are
  * Remove libdebconfclient0 from pkg-list/exclude too.
  * Remove build dep on libdiscover1 now that there's a libdiscover1-udeb
    and proper deps. Remove it from pkg-list/exclude too.
  * Correct comment for libbogl-dev build dep.
  * Add mips mipsel arm and armeb to arch list for the module-init-tools build
    dep since they all use 2.6 kernels now.
  * Limit modutils build dep to the arches that still use 2.4 [arm i386 mips
    mipsel powerpc s390 sparc].

  [ Frans Pop ]
  * Update sparc to 2.6.16; re-enable 2.6 for sparc32.
  * kbd-chooser 1.25 will no longer use usb-mac keymaps for 2.6 based
    installations if AT keymaps are defined; therefore, no longer include
    usb-mac keymaps in images using a 2.6 kernel. Not touching pkg-lists files
    for mips(el) sb1-bcm91250a as they currently don't include AT keymaps.

    those directories from pkg-lists.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Update powerpc to 2.6.16.
  * Pass -r $(KERNELVERSION) to mkvmlinuz rather than -r $(KERNELMAJOR), so
    that it can tell the difference between 2.6.16 and earlier releases.
  * Build chrp initrds for powerpc64.
  * Restore usb-discover on 2.6 images; according to Martin-Éric Racine it's
    still needed to load usbhid et al on some systems. Plus, it's tiny.
  * Add support for OS-specific pkg-lists entries: use lines like
    "gnumach-udeb [hurd]".

  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Comment out nano-udeb and save-logs in the access floppy list to try to
    save space.
  * New usb-serial-modules package added to access floppy, although that
    floppy will now be well oversize.
  * Add kfreebsd and some missing hurd stuff to build dependency info.
    Closes: #363661
  * Remove ide stuff from access floppy, fixing its size problem. Don't know
    why ide stuff was ever on there.
  * Remove USB floppy and keychain support from boot floppy as it was out of

  [ Kyle McMartin ]
  * Update hppa to 2.6.16.

  * Also include libs named *.so.* when calling mklibs. Not including those
    results in missing symbols when building the graphical installer.
    Closes: #366441.

  * Patch from Samuel Thibault to support testing CD-ROM images in qemu.
    Closes: #367068
  * Add documentation for brltty= boot parameter (hope I got it right).
  * Apply Samuel Thibault's patch to add brltty-udeb to the cdrom, netboot,
    nativehd, and hd-media images. Closes: #355851
  * Mark usb-serial-modules added by brltty patch as optional, since they're
    not yet available on all arches.
  * Increase size of the hd-media images from 128 mb to 256 mb to make more
    room for the netinst.
  * Put modutils udebs back on 2.4/2.2 images since new busybox has dropped
    all support for that.
  * Stop building el-torito i386 image, it's too big due to above busybox
  * i386 floppy is full due to above busybox change, moved half the network
    stuff the the net-drivers floppy, which now must be used for all network
  * i386 bootfloppy is broken:
    mount: Couldn't setup loop device
    No idea why. Disabled i386 root and boot floppies. :-(
  * Add EXTRAUDEBS variable which can be used to pull in extra udebs for
    library reduction that are not on boot images.
  * Include cdebconf-newt-entropy in EXTRAUDEBS so that its symbols are in the
    boot images; since it is linked into cdebconf which uses the reduced libc.
  * No more parted build dep; those udeb deps are fixed.

  * Integrate graphical installer on powerpc.

  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Workaround syslinux weirdness on hd-media images; when asked to boot
    2.6/linux, it tries to boot "2.6/l". Rename files out of directories to
    avoid this; the gtk initrd has the unappetizing name "initrdg.gz".
  * Fix amd64 gtk miniiso build.

    included yet.
  * Switch hppa to 2.6.16-2.
  * Switch ia64 to 2.6.16-2.

    consistently using priority=low to boot to expert mode. Needs preseed
  * Change x86 help screen to document fb=false alias.
  * Remove libtextwrap1 from build deps and pkg-lists/exclude; cdebconf
    now uses the library udeb.

  [ Christian Perrier ]
  * Remove all *.prospective files as all these languages are only used in
    the graphical installer.

  * Remove mountfloppy from netboot/common list, add it to only arches that
    support floppies.
  * Don't include brltty on the netboot image for nslu2 machines,
    which uses network-console. Actually, I removed it from images for arches
    except for alpha, amd64, i386, ia64, and powerpc, since the other netboot

  [ Frans Pop ]
  * Switch to 2.6.14 kernel for i386 and sparc64.
  * Run with udev by default (2.6 kernels only). This is now required for i386
    and should also work with 2.6.12 kernels for other arches.

  * Only generate /etc/lsb-release if a udeb hasn't already provided it.
  * Move "main/debian-installer" (for sources.list.udeb) to a
    UDEB_COMPONENTS variable in build/config/common, so that people can more
    easily build with e.g. non-free udebs.
  * Include module-init-tools-udeb when using udev; busybox modprobe doesn't
    seem to support enough of newer kernel features like aliases and
    blacklisting to be usable there yet.
  * Use [2.6] for udev pkg-lists instead of kernel_specific.

  * Back to managing localudebs with apt. To support secure apt,
    authentication is disabled and a warning printed if there are any udebs
    in the localudebs directory. During an official build there will not be
    any and the downloaded udebs will be properly authenticated.

  * Use cramfs images on mipsel. Current mipsel binaries compress very well.
    Needs newest mipsel kernel udebs.
  * Drop EXTRALIBS. Use EXTRAFILES, code was the same, and it's not used
  * Copy in EXTRAFILES before depmod so modules can be included if necessary.
  * Remove libiw udeb from netboot-minimal/powerpc.cfg, will be pulled in by
    mklibs/deps as needed.
  * During library reduction, copy in libraries from driver disks same as
    other libraries so mklibs knows where to find them. This is a hack to
    let mklibs work if building a root floppy with driver disks that include
    libraries that are not on the root floppy. It's not ideal, since the
    library gets added to the root floppy by mklibs now. (This issue currently
    only occurs because netcfg, on the root floppies, is linked statically
    and wireless-tools, on some the driver disks, is not.)

  * Add preseed-common to all initrds, split out from file/network-preseed.
  * Add initrd-preseed too.
  * Add a PRESEED variable, which can be used to specify a preseed file to
    add to the initrd in the location initrd-preseed expects to find one
  * Default PRESEED to unstable.cfg, which sets mirror/udeb/suite, which
    means that all d-i developmental and daily builds that download udebs
    will download them from unstable, not testing.
  * However, in release builds of the package, this is unset, so those will
    pull udebs from testing as previously.
  * Try adding root=/dev/fd0 to the silo.floppy.conf since at least the 2.4
    kernel floppies are reported to not boot without it. This change may
    also affect the 2.6 kernel floppies, which need to be tested.

  * Make syslinux configs use "install" as the label to install, in
    preparation for rescue mode. "linux" continues to work for

    preparation for making i386 use 2.6 by default.
  * Turn on dependency resolution for nic-extra-modules, especially useful
    since it has a new dependency in 2.6.11.
  * Turn on dependency resolution for standard-udebs and
    kernel-module-udebs. This allos most of the mess in monolithic/common
    to be removed as the dependencies pull most of it in, except where
    they're still broken.
  * When preseeding mirror/suite, don't make it be seen, so user can
    override from the default.
  * Recent additions (initrd-preseed) made the el-torito image too big on
    i386, drop usb CD support from it to make it build again.
    Stop abusing the build system in sparc.cfg by pretending that cdrom
    and miniiso are subarches. Add a "combined" subarch for these images
    that really contain both sparc64 and sparc32 support.
  * Included 2.6.8 kernel for amd64. Closes: #307306
  * Add support for creating initramfs initrd images (needs rootskel 1.12).
  * Move /unifont.bgf into lib. Needs rootskel 1.12.
  * Resisted the urge to drop i386 el-torito images, which filled up again
    once 2.6 fb-modules was fixed, and instead just dropped all translations
    from these (unused) images.
  * Add rescue-check to all images.
  * Add rescue, rescue24, and rescue26 boot options in syslinux.
  * To document these in syslinux, removed the old, useless f9.txt, and
    shifted f4 through f8 up one; the new f4 documents rescue mode.
  * Updated one place in the manual that referred to fn documents to reflect
    above change.
  * Document rescue mode in ia64 boot screens, but don't add stanzas for it
    since that would go over the limit of 16. Users will have to type
  * Add stanzas for rescue mode and document in sparc boot screen.
  * Remove devfs=mount from syslinux.cfg. Needs rootskel-bootfloppy 1.13.
  * Use dependency resolution for floppy-retriever, since mountfloppy has
    been split off of it and into a dependency.
  * Add bugreporter-udeb to the i386 root floppy, to cdrom images, and even
    to netboot images, so users can use it to report bugs earlier. Add
    commented out versions to other images on which it won't be very useful,
    since it currently required floppy support.
  * Update the manual for the /var/log/debian-installer ->
    /var/log/installer move.
  * Update the manual for the bugreporter-udeb rename, and for its
    new capailities.
  * Add an /etc/lsb-release file to the initrd, which includes the image
    build date. Useful for determining the provenance of an image.
    Closes: #250321
  * bugreporter-udeb got renamed and is now on more images.
  * Remove redundant rootskel entry from access floppy's package list.
  * Add mountfloppy to each initrd that contains save-logs, except for the
    s390 generic one. save-logs can now drop its dependency on mountfloppy.
  * Make the image tarball be listed as raw-installer in the changes file.
  * Switch to localechooser.
  * Drop all translations from the m68k floppy, which filled up when
    localechooser was added to it, since it didn't have countrychooser on it

  * Turn of dpkg logging during image building. Need to depend on new dpkg
    for this.
  * Add support for virtual packages to pkg-lists.
  * Set DEBIAN_VERSION to etch.
  * Switch from hw-detect-full to disk-detect.
  * Updates for libiw28. Remove libiw27 from build deps and from exclude
    list, since the udeb is in fact used now to provide the library and
    netcfg's dependencies have been fixes. Enable dependency resolution
    for netcfg. Now no more updates should be needed here when libiw
  * Temporarily disable nano from all images, as it's linked to slang2 and
    the rest of d-i is not, and library reduction cannot cope with two
  * Change udeb list format to match file format expected by katie (add
    arch field).
  * Make update-manifest also manage a MANIFEST.udeb file listing the udebs
    inside each file in the manifest, and pass prameters to update-manifest
    calls to provide this information.
  * Include a udeb.list, based on the MANIFEST.udeb, but munged so katie can
    read it natively, inside the images tarball. This will be used to
    ensure that sources for d-i images do not fall out of the archive.

  * Switch to slang2.
  * Switch from busybox-cvs to busybox.
  * New busybox supports 2.6 modules, so the hack with modutils-udeb is not
    needed anymore.
  * Add isolinux.cfg files to the debian-cd-into tarball, so that we
    don't have to maintain the same stuff in debian-cd.
  * Switch i386 images that contain a 2.6 kernel to boot 2.6 by default,
    install24 etc boot 2.4.

    cached a Release.gpg.

  * Remove devfs=mount from yaboot configuration files. It shouldn't be
    needed any more.
  * Don't remove modules.*map from the initrd if we're using real hotplug.
  * Use the kernel-specific discover and isa-pnp-modules include files
    rather than explicitly listing those udebs throughout pkg-lists.
  * Make a note about another possible cause for 'locale charmap' being
    wrong during font generation, since it confused me for days ...
  * Document new-style timezone preseeding, available from base-config
  * Document rescue mode in the manual.
  * Remove historic manual files from (variously) woody and the old build
  * Copy KEYRING into the initrd, as /usr/share/keyrings/archive.gpg. I'm
    relying on the keyring being small here, although we should really have
    a keyring udeb instead.
  * Build-depend on gnupg; apt requires it to verify signatures.
  * Add udev pkg-lists files (including both udev and hotplug); not used by
    default yet.
  * Add real alternatives for virtual glibc-pic build-dependency.
  * Remove and corresponding bzip2
    build-dependency on powerpc; we use mkvmlinuz everywhere now.

    is no 2.6.12. kernel available.
  * Update silo configurations to properly support install, expert and rescue.
  * Enable building both 2.4 and 2.6 images for sparc CDs.
  * Split preseeding example in manual into seperate files for Sarge and Etch;
    the differences were getting too great for a single file.

  * Switch i386 to 2.6.11 kernel.
  * Add file-preseed to netboot image so file-based preseeding can be used on
    netboot mini iso.
  * Remove file-preseed from netboot; that won't work since netboot never
    mounts a CD, duh.
  * Enable text frontend for netboot on all arches.
  * Aribitrarily increased sparc ramdisk_size to 9000 from 8192, since
    it's at least 8230 big now due to added languages.
  * Build-depend on newest libdebian-installer as some udebs have a versioned
    dependency on it.
  * Switch i386 to 2.6.12 kernel.
  * Add support for running upx on binaries inside the initrd, and turn it
    on for a marginal space gain in the (full) i386 boot floppy.
  * Remove usb floppy support from speakup boot floppy since it's terminally
    low on space.
  * Add comments to control file about build deps and add genbuilddeps which
    generates the build dep line based on the comments.
  * As part of the review, removed ncurses-base (not used since we got the
    terminfo udeb), and libnewt0.51 (pulled in by a dep from libnewt-dev)
    and cpio (WTF?)

  * Switch ia64 to 2.6.12 kernel.

  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Turned on dependency resolution by default for udebs in pkg-lists.
  * Add libnss-files-udeb to exclude list to work around bug #322506
    (removed again as #322506 was fixed and the exclusion broke
     network-console for S/390 - FJP).
  * Optimise pkg-lists a bit.
  * rootskel-locale renamed to installation-locale.
  * Move md5sums and udeb.list generation into "release" target of
    build/Makefile and run these as part of the daily build too.
  * Cleaned up various userdevfs cruft, goes along with a reworked
    userdevfs udeb.
  * As part of userdevfs cleanup, removed m68k initrd22 images,
    the regular initrds should work wih 2.2 kernels.
  * Add ads subarch for arm, with a "cf" image flavour used to boot
    various ADS arm boards from compact flash. There is not yet a kernel for
    these boards in Debian, so the images do not include a kernel and must be
    used with a monolithic kernel (from ADS).
  * The stats targets no longer build any images. If the image is not built,
    it just won't display stats for it. This is mainly to work around a bug
    that affected the daily builds, where running stats in a separate fakeroot
    after the build would run build again, and rebuild initrds based on the
    trees in tmp, messing up permissions and devices. It also removes a lot of
    unnucessary work in stats, and allows simpler invocation of stats by
    the daily-build script.
  * Don't regenerate the list of udebs in an image in stats, this was
    redundant info and was slow and ugly to generate there.
  * Remove config/local from svn and add a comment to config/common about
    making the file.
  * Add an evil workaround for bug #329733.

      powerpc-extra-modules that only belong on certain images. This removes
      cdrom-core-modules and fs-common-modules from netboot images, and adds
      parport-modules to apus/cdrom (I think it was missing by mistake).
    - Add support for kernel-specific pkg-lists entries: use lines like
      "package [2.2 2.4]" or "package * [2.6]". Should eventually form a
      simpler replacement for the kernel_specific directory.
    - Include initrd.list on amd64/i386 images.

      The safe version to use, 1.91, is in testing. Closes: #275378
    - Make image builds run as root (as part of the binary-arch step),
      rather than as fakeroot, since fakeroot is broken on mips and mipsel.

    - Bump genext2fs build dep to avoid building images with broken versions.
    - Remove the ugly and no longer needed genext2fs size hack.
    - Remove the last uses of load-installer, replacing them with
    - i386 updated to 2.6.8 and 2.4.27 kernels.
    - Add acpi-modules to i386 2.6 initrds so the fan can be turned on.
      Closes: #264584.
    - Remove function key descriptions from the bottom of the ia64 help
      screens, as in my experience the function keys only work from the
      menu screen.
    - Make ia64 boot screens somewhat more generic so they can be used for
      netboot or other image types besides CD.
    - Use only one elilo.conf for netboot and CD.
    - Revamp the ia64 netboot, provide a netboot.tar.gz image that contains
      a fully preconfigured netboot setup with boot menus for 2.6 and 2.4.
      Make the dest tree have the same layout.
    - Add -- markers to elilo.cfg boot options.
    - Update i386 and amd64 netboot to follow ia64. Note that the tarballs
      have been renamed.
    - Fix ia64 miniiso support to not hardcode use of specific boot image,
      remove the miniiso type, and generate a netboot miniiso instead.
    - Simplify bootscreen-subst parameters.
    - Based on a patch from Alex Owen, make syslinux help screens explain
      on serial consoles how to press function keys there, and add a pxelinux
      config file for 9600 baud serial consoles, available by changing the
      pxelinux.cfg link.
    - Comment out the "NewWorld MacOS Installation Files" section of the
      install manual as it's out of date and has broken links. Closes: #269526
    - Add support for depenency resolution to pkg-lists. For now it has to be
      turned on on a per-package basis by appending an asterisk to the line,
      since many udebs have messed up dependencies and inter-image
      dependencies are not accounted for.
    - Make pkg-list warn about unsatisfied dependencies.
    - Use dependency resolution for the nic-modules package, as its
      dependencies vary from arch to arch and kernel to kernel. Fixes various
      missing deps on i386 and ia64.
    - Use dependency resolution for scsi-modules to get rid of the
      kernel_specific hack.
    - Drop scsi-modules and usb-storage-modules from ia64 netboot image.
    - Put efi-reader on ia64 cdrom image.
    - Remove ia64-extra-modules hack, not needed thanks to nic-modules and
      scsi-modules dependency resolution.
    - Add dependencies of nic-usb-modules to net-drivers floppy (usb-modules
      was missing).
    - Remove useless (and missing dependencies) usb-storage-modules from
      cd-drivers floppy. This made space to add back full pcmcia support on
      this floppy.
    - Add options to elilo boot menu for serial console installs, as I tire
      of typing them.
    - Split access-drivers floppy into net and cd drivers and updated these
      floppies to 2.4.27.
    - Remove ide and scsi modules from various arches netboot images.
    - Move some files to a doc/devel subdirectory.
    - Moved partman docs over from packages/partman, and build them as part
      of the doc build process. Add build dep on debiandoc-sgml.
    - Also moved in partman-auto recipe documentation.
    - Added example preseed file for automated installs.
    - Rewrote design.txt.
    - Use text frontend for ia64 installs via serial console by default,
      since the default ia64 serial console is 9600 baud.
    - Add English to i386 root floppies. Closes: #269971
    - Set build date to the version date from the changelog when doing
      official builds, so all builds of a given version claim the same date.
    - Add a dummy entry to the status file for that gives the overall version
      of the installer image.
    - Build-Depend on syslinux 2.11-0.1 to get fix for parameter bug.
    - Drop all languages from root floppy. Drop all other localised versions
      of root floppy. Document how to make a custom root floppy containing
      the language(s) you need.
      (PC 101: If you can't satisfy everyone, satisfy no-one.)
    - Move countrychooser back to the root floppy.
    - Add wireless-tools-udeb and nic-usb-modules to the root floppy because
      we have the space, so why not?
    - Update hppa to 2.4.27 kernel. Without testing it, but the 2.4.25 kernel
      udebs are no longer available. We need hppa developers..
    - Patch from Jö Fahlke to consistently refer to DEBCONF_FRONTEND in docs.
      debconf/frontend doesn't work everywhere yet, and it's better to only
      support one option.

    - Put a SiByl TFTP boot configuration script to sb1-swarm-bn/netboot.
    - Put the SiByl boot loader to sb1-swarm-bn/netboot.
    - Update the Cobalt manifest descriptions to reflect reality
      (the config now uses NFS, not TFTP).
    - Create an nfsroot tar file for Cobalt which can easily be extracted
      (containing all files including proper symlinks).
    - Switch mips and mipsel over to 2.4.27.
    - Put USB and input modules on the sb1-swarm-bn/netboot initrd to allow
      "desktop like" installations with framebuffer and USB keyboards.
    - Make sure that the serial console on Cobalt gets turned on.
    - Update installation menu for mips and mipsel.
    - Cleanup the ARM config files: declare most variables in one place and
      use them in various other configs.  This makes it easier to switch
      kernels and makes the code easier to maintain.
    - Switch ARM over to 2.4.27.

    - Move socket-modules from powerpc root-2 to root, otherwise syslogging
      won't work.
    - Remove serial-modules from root-2. It's only needed for strange PPP
      stuff which is not needed on the floppies.
    - Remove PCMCIA support and wireless tools from root-2. The floppies are
      only needed on OldWorld, which probably either won't have PCMCIA or
      will have built-in networking. In the rare cases where this might be
      needed, you can always throw the udeb on a floppy.
    - Remove nic-extra-modules from powerpc net-drivers. We've changed the
      module udebs so that all drivers likely to be needed on OldWorld are
      in nic-modules.
    - Move everything else from root-2 to net-drivers, and remove root-2.

    - Add firewire-core-modules to the 2.6 kernel_specific nic-modules list, as
      used by i386, amd64, and powerpc, all of which were just changed so that
      nic-modules depend on firewire-modules for 2.6 kernels.
    - Remove ipv6-modules and wireless-tools-udeb from the i386 net-drivers
      floppy to get back under the floppy size limit. Closes: #261625

      improved docs on PXE booting for i386 (Closes: #232252),
      rewritten section of downloading files that avoids bad links and
      outdated image names (Closes: #246890), document ramdisk_size for lilo
      and grub booting better (Closes: #255821).
    - i386 kernel no longer support rarp, disable that in install manual.

      left for now until we update all links and docs to point to the new one.
    - Full package builds build the manual in official build mode.

    - Document 'install video=ofonly' instead of 'install-safe', which is
      going away (it caused combinatorial explosion in the yaboot prompt on
      full CDs).

      scsi-core-modules to the powerpc 2.6 cdrom initrds. Should actually
      work now.
    - Add pcmcia udebs to powerpc net_drivers floppy and netboot images.
    - Move $(TREE)/usr/lib/kernel-image-$(KERNELVERSION) out of the way to
      $(TEMP)/lib when building boot images. powerpc subarchitectures that
      need to use mkvmlinuz should now be able to do so.
    - For every initrd, output an initrd.list file containing the packages
      and their versions used to construct it.
    - debootstrap-udeb is now priority optional. Add it back into monolithic
    - Drop G5 images; power4 works on G5s as of linux-kernel-di-powerpc-2.6
      0.62. Build power4 netboot 2.6 images.
    - Remove install-safe and expert-safe targets, advising people to add
      'video=ofonly' instead. The -safe targets have got rather out of hand
      on full CDs, so I'd like to think about removing them there.
    - daily-build copies the previous build before rsyncing up the new one.
      This saved 82MB of upload for my powerpc build.

    - Change netcfg/use_dhcp to netcfg/disable_dhcp in syslinux boot screens
      and elsewhere.
    - Update i386 to the 2.6.7 kernel.
    - Add firmware-modules to i386 images that have either nic-modules or
      scsi-modules on them. Make this happen only for the 2.6 kernel, using a
      nasty pkg-lists/kernel_specific technique since we lack dependency
      resolution in pkg-lists.
    - Go back to pulling udebs from unstable when building official images.
    - Produce a single hd-media boot image that includes both kernels.
    - Parameterise filenames and paths in the syslinux.cfg files so that
      files can have different names or locations.
    - Provide a pxeboot.tar.gz on i386 that can just be untarred into a
      tftpserver file space for easy PXE boot setup, and update

      have ppp-udeb on them.
    - Pull udebs from testing when building official images.

      yet so it's still not bootable ...

    - Add a pkg-lists/kernel_specific, for 2.4 and 2.6, currently
      discover varies depending on the kernel major version, and there is a
      hack to use module-init-tools over busybox for 2.6.

    - sparc: debian.txt - update to reflect new expert mode
  * Stephen R. Marenka
    - m68k: mac build fixes.
    - m68k: add build support for amiga.
    - m68k: demo build.
    - m68k: add initial subarch support for atari and vme's.
    - m68k: add m68k to floppy pkg-lists.
  * Joey Hess
    - add support for pkg-lists/*/local files (not in CVS), for building
      test images
    - di-utils is now part of base
    - fix pcmcia-config-reduce call
    - set the syslinux timeout to 0 on floppys, to match the CD
    - put syslinux boot screens back on boot floppy and hd-media
    - copy to $(TEMP) instead of deleting it, I understand sparc
      needs this
    - add the libiw27-udeb to every list that includes netcfg
    - add libdebconfclient to pkg-lists/base; it is marginally smaller than
      having mklibs copy in the system one. Remove build-dep.
    - same for libdebian-installer-4-udeb, although it is not currently any
    - before running mklibs, copy all the libs from lib and usr/lib in the
      initrd to a temporary directory, and add that to mklib's search path
      with -L. This will make it avoid copying in large versions of libs from
      the build system if there is already a small version available in the
    - removed the slow, buggy code that added unneccessary and often wrong
      "-reduced" entries to the status file
  * Sylvain Ferriol
    - Add plip-modules to the net_drivers floppy.

debian-installer (20040209) unstable; urgency=low

  * Steve Langasek
    - Use -di flavored kernels for alpha
    - build-depend on aboot for alpha (needed for making
      floppies/CDs bootable)
    - include srm-modules and socket-modules in the alpha initrd
    - tell d-i that alpha CDROMs don't use a floppy image, just an
      initrd and kernel
    - upgrade to 2.4.24 for alpha kernels
  * Thiemo Seufer
    - Remove dead apt-get code in the Makefile.
    - Redesigned build system. Major changes to the configuration
      handling for all architectures. Closes: #215508
    - Remove arhcdetect from m68k config, it is already in the generic
    - Fix broken alpha build, input-modules isn't created for -di
      kernel flavour.
    - Adjust daily-build script for the new build system.
    - Remove special handling for "default", it was broken anyway.
    - Switch back sparc kernel handling in to the old value.
    - Add support for MANIFEST files. Closes: #231767
    - Fix genromfs invocation, found by Thomas Poindessous.
  * Thomas Poindessous
    - Remove redundant kbd-chooser from netboot pkg-list.
    - Add discover, discover-data to sparc netboot image. Closes: #227853
    - Correct netboot image building on sparc. Closes: #228519
  * Joey Hess
    - Copyright date updates.
    - Add wireless-tools to the net_drivers floppy and the netboot initrd.
    - Switch the kernel to 2.4.24 for i386.
    - Document vga=771 option for laptops with display problems.
      Closes: #229904
    - Add syslinux splash image by Matthew A. Nicholson, and another by
      Klowner, and still another by Volkan YAZICI.
    - Make all the syslinux help screens leave graphics mode when displayed.
    - Hack syslinux.txt so it all fits on one line, the same line as the boot:
    - Add ${BOOTPROMPT} expansion to bootscreen-subst, to make it easy
      to make the last line in a syslinux screen not have a newline at EOF
      on the image, while still being easily editable.
    - Switch cdroms from load-installer to load-cdrom. This is to work around
      limitations in main-menu (see #218774). Driver floppy loading will now
      be started by cdrom-detect if it fails to find a CD.
    - Version the mtools build-dep. Closes: #225584
    - Let HOST, BASEDIR, or DIR be set in the environment before running
      daily-build, to override the defaults.
    - Fix up miniiso creation to fit into the new build system better.
    - Turn on miniiso creation for netboot, so there is a
      dest/netboot/mini.iso that behaves the same as a netboot would.
    - Add a dest/cdrom/debian-cd_info.tar.gz with the syslinux screens
      and splash image, for eventual use by debian-cd.
    - Convert the miniiso to use isolinux, to support any size initrd.
    - Improvements to manifest generation and formatting.
  * Richard Hirst
    - ia64: Fix cdrom to autoboot, and tidy up kernel params.  Partial
      fix for 227114.
    - ia64: Change to 2.4.22 -di kernel, and include usb storage modules,
      and ide/scsi core modules.  Partial fix for 227114.
    - Increase ia64 'floppy' image to 10MB, and initrd to 24MB
    - hppa: Add config/type/netboot-hppa, so TYPE=netboot generates a lifimage
    - hppa: include fdisk-udeb in pkglists so we can partition.
    - hppa: include text frontend, as it is useful for debugging.
    - hppa: fix up palo cmdline for netboot lifimage
  * Stephen R. Marenka
    - m68k: update/create pkg-lists/cdrom/m68k pkg-lists/netboot/m68k.
    - m68k: add some more devices to help support 2.2.25.
  * Jeff Bailey
    - sparc: Update config/arch/linux-sparc to show 2.4.24 and di flavour
    - sparc: Remove ide-modules and scsi-modules - they're built in.
    - sparc: Update kernel version in mirror-udeb list.
    - sparc: Update config/sparc.cfg to show 2.4.24 and di flavour

  * Another day, another build. This one has updated busybox in it.

debian-installer (20040101) unstable; urgency=low

  * Giuseppe Sacco
    - Corrected a small error in make/arch/linux-powerpc about
    - the creation of a boot.msg
  * Joey Hess
    - Minor consistency fix in f10.txt.

debian-installer (20031230) unstable; urgency=low

  * Giuseppe Sacco
    - Changed the KERNEL_FLAVOUR for powerpc to -di
  * Joey Hess
    - i386 will work on 32 mb now, update system requirements in syslinux help
    - Remove the encoding grep, all non-utf8 encodings should be fixed now.
    - Fix make dependency loop on hppa and sparc where FLOPPY_SIZE is not set.
      Closes: #225389
    - Add expert and expert-safe boot modes to yaboot.
    - Pass devfs=mount,dall in yaboot.conf for new powerpc kernel.
    - Add build date to yaboot boot.msg.
  * Thiemo Seufer
    - Sanitize mips/mipsel image creation.
  * Vincent Sanders
    - Initial ARM port

debian-installer (20031226) unstable; urgency=low

  * Thiemo Seufer
    - "make reallyclean" should really clean.
    - Fix build failure, images/ wasn't created.
  * Joey Hess
    - Add fakeroot to build-depends, as the debian/rules uses it in the build
      target. Should fix FTBFS on mips.
    - Don't put docs under images/, so debian-cd will find them.

debian-installer (20031223) unstable; urgency=low

  * Joey Hess
    - Generate bootable hd-media images, not just the initrd.
      These can be written directly the usb memory stick, then mounted
      and a d-i iso copied in. As they're quite big (and sparse),
      they are gzipped.
    - NB: The above change means you need 128+ mb more free space to
      build this package on i386.
    - If is included in the kernel image udeb, pass it to depmod
      via -F and delete it when done. This is to support building on systems
      running 2.6.
    - Remove ide modules stuff from net drivers floppy. I don't know why it
      was there, but its deps were not met and this could cause ugly messages
      during install.
    - Remove the same ide modules from i386 netboot.
    - Document the bootkbd boot parameter in syslinux f7.txt.
    - Add "expert" mode boot to syslinux, which sets DEBCONF_PRIORITY=low.
    - Include a doc/index.en.html in the install-images tarball, so
      debian-cd will find some documentation and not include the boot floppies
    - Include INSTALLATION-HOWTO there too, by way of a gross, gross hack.
    - netcfg reorg
    - scsi-common-modules reorg
    - Grep out several encodings that confuse reduce-font:
      ISO-8859-*, EUC-JP, CP1251. This is a temporary hackaround to get it
      building again.
    - Access floppy filled up, so move the network stuff to the access_drivers
      floppy. That filled up access_drivers, so comment out SCSI support at
      least for now.
    - Turn ia64 back on, let's see if it builds now.
  * Thiemo Seufer
    - Build the demo tree only for architectures which support it.
    - Don't build images for the demo target.
    - Ensure TYPE=demo for the Makefile's demo target.
    - Remove stamp files for tree and get_udebs at the begin of their rule,
      create them at the rule's end.
    - Ignore errors for the all_clean target.
    - Don't use USERDEVFS for linux-mips.
    - Fix 'make clean' if type demo is unsupported.
  * Marco d'Itri
    - Add preliminary support for .ko kernel modules.

debian-installer (20031212) unstable; urgency=low

  * Joey Hess
    - Switch i386 to using dhcp-client rather than pump for netboot.
      Left it using pump on other arches that did not already use dhcp-client,
      at least for now.
    - Switch i386, hppa, and ia64 to dhcp-client rather than udhcp
      on the root floppy.
    - Switch powerpc to pump on the root floppy.
    - Switch i386 to dhcp-client rather than udhcp on the access floppy.
    - Switch from pump to dhcp-client on powerpc.
    - Add disk labels to the i386 floppy images, for use by the bootfloppy
      initrd, and maybe later by the floppy retreiver, etc.
    - In debian/rules, if the changelog is unreleased, use unstable as the
    - makelabel takes the build date as its second parameter. Calculating
      BUILD_DATE once at the start to avoid inconsistencies during
      long/midnight builds.
    - Add MEDIA_TYPE to configs for bootable image types.
    - Add DEBIAN_VERSION to config.
    - Add bootscreen-subst to substitute these variables into boot screens.
    - Make a syslinux help screen, for all i386 syslinuxed boot media.
      Includes the build date, debian version, and media type, and is derived
      from isolinux help texts on the sarge cds, but modified to actually
      match d-i:
        - remove boot flavor docs, as we currently have no flavors
        - remove rescue stuff, as d-i is not currently also a rescue disk
        - reduce number of colors used for cleaner look
        - remove mention of non-free
        - try to make the prerequisites documentation somewhere close to
          reality -- 64 mb ram and 256 mb disk.
        - make every boot message screen 22 lines long, followed by a blank
          line (which is in turn followed by the boot: prompt), for consistent
        - remove references in f4.txt to a nonexistant table
        - remove documentation of mono and vga16:off, as they do not work with
        - remove keytimer hack documentation, that was for boot-floppies
        - add documentation of d-i's boot time parameters, including the new
        - remove the mailing list subscription info; boot time is not the
          time to tell the user about this. In its place, make f9.txt be
          about Debian.
      - Remove DEBCONF_DEBUG setting from syslinux.cfg.
      - Use bootscreen-subst on powerpc's boot.msg, too.
      - Comment out the udeb apt status file stuff in get-packages, now is not
        the time to be breaking the build with that.
      - Build depend on elilo on ia64. This had better be the last one.
  * Goswin von Brederlow
    - Moved fetching of (u)debs into get-packages shell script.
    - Changed sources.list to sources.list.udeb, added sources.list.deb.
    - Allowed "deb file:/..." urls in /etc/apt/sources.list, (Closes: #221031)
      simplified sed expression and change file to copy urls.
    - Add explaining error message when apt-get update fails
    - get-packages: Only seed dpkg status with libs when getting udebs
    - pkg-lists/cdrom/alpha: missing input-modules-${kernel:Version}
    - pkg-lists/mirror_udeb: lists for a partial mirror suitable for the CDs
    - Drop pump-udeb (netboot on alpha, s390 and sparc) in favour of
    - debain/control: added Build-Depends: mkisofs
    - daily-build: changed to copy last days images and rsync new ones
    - daily-build: don't let the builder wait for logs, use tee
    - No discover for mips/mipsel
    - Added arch mips to the debian-installer.deb (Closes: #221534)
  * Thiemo Seufer
    - Fix error handling in
  * Chris Tillman
    - Add DEBCONF_PRIORITY note to powerpc boot message.
    - Add MacRISC3 & 4 to ofboot.b for compatibility with G4/G5 powerpcs
  * Mario Lang
    - Add new boot floppy flavour "speakup" which uses a speakup-enabled
      kernel version.
    - Update the access flavour to use the same kernel version as the
      speakup flavour.
    - Update the access_drivers common and i386 pkg-list.
  * Thiemo Seufer
    - Sanitize It aborts now on errors and won't move/copy
      files around without good reason. Changed mipsel image generation
      to t-rex.
    - Add pkg-lists/netboot/mips.
    - Add fdisk to the mips/mipsel CD images, add AT keyboard support
      to mips image.
    - Add AT keyboard support to mips demo image.
    - Polish make/arch/linux-mips{,el} a bit.
    - Switch config/arch/linux-mips to kernel 2.4.22 with -di flavour.

debian-installer (20031113) unstable; urgency=low

  * Joey Hess
    - Add new loop-modules to bootfloppy, hd-media.
    - Move input-modules from root floppy to bootfloppy, as the new
      rootskel-bootfloppy prompts for the user to hit enter.
    - Remove redundant usb-discover and usb-modules from root floppy;
      the boot floppy takes care of that.
    - Remove fat-modules and floppy-modules from the root floppy; they
      boot floppy loads them.
    - Create DEST before copying in DEST_KERNEL.
    - ia64 build-depends on dosfstools. Closes: #219919
    - sparc build-depends on genromfs. Closes: #220208
    - remove brltty from everything except access. It is causing problems
      (#219928) on sparc at least.
    - add nic-extra-modules to netboot for i386, as it fits and netboot
      should support as much as it can
    - try to get full UTF-8 going on netboot
    - add nano to netboot
  * Richard Hirst
    - Add mtools as a build-dep for ia64

debian-installer (20031109) unstable; urgency=low

  * Richard Hirst
    - Remove efi-reader from ia64 cdrom pkglist for now; the one in the
      archive is linked against libdebian-installer3 which is no longer
    - Stop including debootstrap-udeb in cdrom pkg-list for ia64.

debian-installer (20031106.1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Enable ia64 in control file. (Build report from Jeff Bailey)
  * Idempotency fix in debian/rules install.
  * Put in some stuff to allow for more than one release per day.

debian-installer (20031106) unstable; urgency=low

  * Improved the copyright file, decided not to try to list the copyright
    of every component of the images.
  * Uppercased the md5sums filename.
  * New retriever menu setup:
    - add load-floppy and download-installer to floppy
    - add load-installer to cdrom, netboot
    - add load-iso to hd-media
    - add load-cdrom, hw-detect-full, ide-core-modules, and cdrom-detect
      to cd_drivers, which is actually usable now
  * Remove pcmcia-udeb from pkg-lists, hw-detect took over.
  * Make d-i-demo catch SIGINT, clean up properly.
  * Fix kernel module package names in udeb_include for driver floppies.
  * Alastair McKinstry:
    - Add additional shade characters to fix the scroll bar in the newt
    - The terminfo entries are now provided by di-utils-terminfo, not
      the Makefile.
  * Richard Hirst:
    - Misc ia64 fixes - define KERNEL_FLAVOUR, clean up pkglists, etc
  * Improved the description of debian-installer-demo. Closes: #219255
  * Build includes new cdebconf, fixed partconf, fixed bogl-bterm redraw
    problems, etc, etc. Many other fixes and improvements.

debian-installer (20031029) unstable; urgency=low

  * Initial release.
  * This includes a deb that lets a demo of the installer be run
    (and triggers autobuilders), but the main payload is the
    debian-installer-images tarball, which is designed to be unpacked
    by ftp-master into the ftp site.
  * Set architecture to i386, powerpc for now. More will be added
    once d-i works on them well enough to distribute images.

This directory provides installer images in the form of a device-specific
part (containing the partition table and the system firmware) and a
device-independent part (containing the actual installer), which can be
unpacked and concatenated together to build a complete installer image.
The device-specific part is named firmware.<board_name>.img.gz
and the device-independent part is named partition.img.gz.
In addition to providing several firmware.<board_name>.img.gz files for
a number of devices with device-specific system firmware, we also
provide a firmware.none.img.gz file (containing the partition table but
without any system firmware) to provide generic installer images for
devices for which no firmware.<board_name>.img.gz file is provided.
To create a complete image from the two parts on Linux systems, you can
use zcat as follows:
