Bibit Paket - Boot

Kernels and Bootloaders

The default kernels and bootloaders are not to be installed by debootstrap, and *-minimal metapackages should not depend on them; however, they do need to end up on CD images and in live filesystems. We therefore put them in a separate seed.

We seed both linux- and linux-image- so that it's easier to build CD images without the restricted component. The linux-* kernels include restricted modules.

  • Kernel-Stem: linux linux-image == i386 ==
  • grub [amd64 i386] # lilo will be in supported
  • ${Kernel-Stem}-generic [i386] # our chosen default install kernel
