* Graphical installer
   Device files for input devices created in {{{/dev}}} instead of {{{/dev/input}}} which makes starting directfb fail. Creating symlinks in {{{/dev/input}}} fixes this. Probably a simple issue in udev-udeb.

This page describe the progress of removing usage of the obsolete devfs in the DebianInstaller.

  • Busybox
    • [http://packages.qa.debian.org/busybox busybox] is currently built with CONFIG_FEATURE_DEVFS activated. It needs to be deactivated in debian/config-udeb.

      We should not have any problems in uploading this change without any specific changes in the DebianInstaller. Testing might be desirable though. Current d-i works correctly with modified busybox on i386.

  • Remove devfs.rules and compat-full.rules in [http://packages.qa.debian.org/udev udev]

    • Works with modified busybox on i386, text d-i.
