Bug#775322: Bootloader code issues and improvements

Control: tags -1 + patch

Update + additional issues!

Additional issues:
#25) Old LB_UNION_FILESYSTEM code needs removing
#26) Use of the syslinux HDT tool is broken, with missing file errors.
I'm not certain whether this was already broken before I started this
work, or whether I broke it somehow, possibly only in my test
environment. I will investigate...
#27) I believe syslinux is checking for the existence of a wrong
directory when LB_BUILD_WITH_CHROOT=false, specifically
/usr/share/{bootloader} instead of /usr/lib/{bootloader}. I sent an
email to Daniel for confirmation, but I am fairly certain this is a
genuine mistake.
#28) Grub2 is not designed to work with LB_BUILD_WITH_CHROOT=false.

This update, building on top of the previous work:
 - Addresses issues #9, #19 and #25
 - Introduces a grub2 theme
 - Adds additional misc. improvements

This now leaves the following outstanding issues: #25, #26 and #27.
And the following additional todo's:
 - Switch grub2 to use svg like syslinux
 - Possibly reduce redundant duplication of syslinux files
 - Implement partial config replacement capability
 - Possibly add ability to execute a 'customise' script from within the
set of bootloader files, enhancing user/derivative bootloader
customisation capabilities (one benefit of this is that doing so in

Bug#776597: rng-tools: No systemd .service file.

Package: rng-tools
Version: 2-unofficial-mt.14-1
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

rng-tools works in sysV compatibility mode. No native systemd .service file.

One problem is that the the sysV version uses bash computing to search
a list of random file names. I have created a bash file that does this
then execs rngd. I have tested this on my raspberry PI which runs
systemd version 44. Changes may be required to upgrade to current version.

Bug#776595: gnome-menus: Two folders with the same name in the Dutch translation

Package: gnome-menus
Version: 3.13.3-5
Severity: important
Tags: l10n

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
Using the menu of "Gnome Classic".

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
I opened the "Applications" menu item. In Dutch this is called "Toepassingen".

   * What was the outcome of this action?
I saw two folders called "Hulpmiddelen". I found out that both "Accesoiries"
and "Utitlities" where translated into "Hulpmiddelen".

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
Folders with different names, this is very confusing.

Bug#776593: libreoffice suggests non-existent gstreamer1.0-ffmpeg (should be gstreamer1.0-libav instead)

Source: libreoffice
Version: 1:4.4.0~rc3-1
Severity: minor

Hi, Rene.

First of all, thanks for maintaining libreoffice. I just noticed one minor
issue with the packaging of libreoffice: it currently suggests the
non-existent package gstreamer1.0-ffmpeg, which does not exist.

The name of the package (regardless of if it is implemented by libav or
ffmpeg as the libraries) should be gstreamer1.0-libav instead.


Rogério Brito.

Bug#776592: xsane no longer respects "Wait for button" on Epson 1640SLI

Package: xsane
Version: 0.998-6+b1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I have been using xsane with an Epson 1640SU scanner with xsane with
excellent results for many years.

However, the "Wait for Button" control now no longer works when
scanning. It *does* seem to work on an initial preview, but then
even that fails. It is as if the first time it is used, something
happens to disable subsequent attempts.

Bug#776591: python-markdown: calls logging.captureWarnings on import

Package: python-markdown
Version: 2.5.1-2
Severity: important


python-markdown in jessie calls logging.captureWarnings(True) on import,
unconditionally.  For a library, this is unbelievably antisocial.
Logging should be left in control of the application.
