Bug#431285: linux-image-2.6.18-4-686: displays unnecessairy FUD during install

Package: linux-image-2.6.18-4-686
Version: 2.6.18.dfsg.1-12etch1
Severity: important

During installation, the package displays irrelevant and panicky 
information about needed changes in the LILO configuration files 
while grub is the standard debian boot loader.

Detecting if Grub or LILO is the boot loader is easy to do and 
should be done before this unnecessairy information screen is
displayed.

Further more the installer could check by itself if the 
needed changes is already included in the configuration file 
instead of requiring a user to do so.

Bug#431291: initramfs-tools: booting with root=UUID=... does not work with version 0.88

Package: initramfs-tools
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Booting with 'root=UUID=...' fails, it just hangs at "Waiting for
root file system..." and you can't boot your system anymore unless
you fall back to root=/dev/... syntax.

It's a problem of initramfs-tools 0.88.
It works fine with 0.87b.

regards,

another high probability error is vol_id,
i'll revert that change soon as i'm fed up of reports against it
and afair to your irc log you where using mdadm,
where it has trouble to recognize.

Because I don't have any more. ;) Booting with 0.87b works fine and
as soon as I run:

dpkg -i initramfs-tools_0.88_all.deb
update-initramfs -c -t -k $(uname -r)
reboot

the system fails to boot. When booting via grml live-cd, downgrading
to initramfs-tools_0.87b_all.deb, running update-initramfs and
rebooting again the system boots without any problems.

I'm Sorry, but what do you mean ? Is this message for the package maintainer, or for the 
problem reporter ?
