  1. Bug#445507: not working on mipsel - initrd not starting

    If d-i is working on mips* right now using mklibs-copy, is there any reason
    left to treat this bug as RC for lenny? It really does not appear to be
    blocking anything for release in practice.

    I don't think it should be RC. I believe Frans disagrees but I'm not
    sure why.

    IMO it is a serious issue as using mklibs on mips/mipsel will result in a
    non-working system. I'm still rather disappointed (and even somewhat
    pissed off) that the mips/mipsel porters have not managed to solve it in
    over a year time now. The fact that we can work around it for D-I using
    mklibs-copy does not change its severity.

    I intended to tag it lenny-ignore last week, but made a mistake with the
    bug number. It should now be tagged correctly.
