Bug#758924: linux-image-3.14-2-amd64: Need to explicitly set proto option for psmouse to work with gpm

Package: src:linux
Version: 3.14.15-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

  I am using a Dell Latitude E5540 laptop, the touchpad is working fine 
  on X. Yet on the console UI, I wasn't able to use gpm with the mouse, 
  after some searching I found a bug on Launchpad [1] that suggested setting 
  the 'proto' option for psmouse module [2].

  So when I set proto=exps, I was able to use the touchpad with gpm. The 
  gpm command line was:

  gpm -m /dev/input/mice -t exps2

  I think that what I've done is a workaround rather than a 
  configuration, especially that according to 'modinfo psmouse', this 
  option is useful for KVM switches (which is not my case here)

This bug is still active in 3.10-3-686-pae on Intel. The messages spam the consoles, making them all unusable.

Am upgrading now to see if the latest kernel will solve this and another problem.

Bug#643954: please enable ntpd debugging

I’m in agreement here.

I created a local fork without debugging disabled and installed this across many systems for testing.

Bug#758921: debian-installer I18N: "partitioning iSCSI targets" not localized

Package: debian-installer


I just noticed something in the Jessie beta1 netinst image, that confused
my translator's mind:
in the partitioning step, there is a menu entry "Configure iSCSI volumes",
which appears in English, while I chosed German as language, and I have
German fully translated AFAIK.
Also the rest of that topic is not translated, as
	"This menu allows you to configure iSCSI volumes"
	"Log into iSCSI targets"
	"Enter an IP address to scan for iSCSI targets. To use a
	port other than the default of 3260, use "IP:port" notation ..."
Everything in english.

It seems there is something not marked as translatable.

Bug#752970: srtp: FTBFS confirmed, and patch to fix


I can confirm that this package fails to build in jessie, and that the
cause is the same as for bug #751355 which Michael referred to.

I've found that the solution is the same as well, namely to add our own
definition of \+ in our custom latex header.  Please accept the attached
patch which fixes the problem.

Many thanks,

Bug#758917: reboot should not return shell prompt

Package: systemd
Version: 208-8
File: /lib/systemd/system/rescue.service

I notice when typing "reboot" from the rescue (etc.?) shell that one
gets the shell prompt back right away, and thinks 'well that didn't
work,' and goes on typing commands... and then after a few seconds,
mid-command, finds it really did work.

Therefore it would be best to just print some dots and sleep, else the
user might do things when it is best 'to just stop playing on the train
tracks as here it comes.'
