f2fs requires crc32 module

Just an FYI but, I've been messing around with the installer on a spare laptop (UEFI & elilo) and if I make the root filesystem use f2fs, the system fails to boot because it is missing the crc32 module. If I do "modprobe --show-depends f2fs" nothing shows up (other than f2fs).

This Debian change mentions "crc32 as hidden dependency module for f2fs" so I rebuilt the initrd.gz to include crc32 (mkinitrd_command_generator.sh --run -m crc32) and the system boots OK.

I have been using the f2fs as a root filesystem for quite a while (in fact, have even sent a patch to the kernel so that the xattrs feature is build by default with f2fs, which is required for properly using it on the root).

But I do that using a "huge" kernel, which is by far a much safer option in every respect, since _a single file_ is the only thing that you need to have to make the system boot up to a survivable state, so I definitely recommend just using the "huge" kernel.

(If you search the forum, there I have also posted a report on building a kernel with an initrd appended to it. I wish I had time to finish this.)

Could we have

Code:
"\e\C-f":shell-forward-word
"\e\C-b":shell-backward-word
added to /etc/inputrc ? It is a relatively (a few years old) new addition to readline, but I find it cool.
This binding is also in accord with Emacs's backward-sexp/forward-sexp.

Avian,
Many thanks for the updated WireGuard packages!
Greatly appreciated!

Legacy boot is the only way I've been able to make it work.

Anyway, none of that has to do with the problem I'm reporting. Section 3.5.1.1 of the UEFI spec says BOOTIA32.EFI is the conventional file name for a 32-bit loader with PE executable machine type 0x14c. The 32-bit usbboot.img has 32-bit elilo (with the 0x14c machine type) installed as BOOTX64.EFI, not BOOTIA32.EFI.
Well, this might pretty much explain why either UEFI install fails then?

Syslinux as a project is in a comatose state. The best downstream patches are Debian's. But a lot of patches have been suggested to upstream over the years and never even looked at. Dr Ady is trying hard to keep the patient alive but he is not a developer (that's what he says, anyway).

Just cosmetic but

Error when install 'cups-filters' package:

Pre-installing package cups-filters-1.27.4-x86_64-1...
mv: impossible d'évaluer 'etc/fonts/conf.d/99pdftoopvp.conf.new': Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type

due to 'config etc/fonts/conf.d/99pdftoopvp.conf.new in the 'doinst.sh'

probably inherited from an older version of 'cups-filters'
