Package: debian-installer
Version: daily build 2023-06-28T05:19Z
Severity: grave
Tags: d-i
Justification: renders package unusable

Hello Debian-installer maintainers,

On openQA [1] the installation tests with the latest netinst image [2] fail,
because GRUB cannot install.
I've tried to look a bit deeper into the issue, but I cannot proceed, because
/var/log/syslog is empty. So effectively there are possibly two issues in this
1) Failure in grub
2) No logging to /var/log/syslog

My findings so far:
* The command line arguments of syslogd and klogd (both from Busybox) have not
changed between Bookworm and Trixie.
* At the moment of the failure, the /var/log folder contains only 3 files [3]:
syslog (a single line, stating that syslog was started from Busybox [4]),
partman and Xorg.0.log
* When running `logger`, an entry should have been created in /var/log/syslog,
but that doesn't happen. The netinst image from Bookworm works correctly.
* Possibly relevant packages that have been updated: busybox, libc, linux-
image, bsdutils

With kind regards,
Roland Clobus
