There should be no changes needed on the d-i side. libc6-udeb has a new dependency on libcrypt1-udeb. When packages get rebuilt against libxcrypt, they'll have a direct dependency on libcrypt1-udeb. There is a small impact on size (~100kB) as libxcrypt provides a bit more functionality. Aurelien -- Aurelien Jarno GPG: 4096R/1DDD8C9B aurel...@aurel32.net http://www.aurel32.net
