Bug Description

gfxboot-theme-ubuntu does not read the menu item titles from syslinux/syslinux.cfg. A workaround is to place the configuration file in syslinux/syslinux.cfg as well as the root of the filesystem.

This makes it more difficult to construct USB images based on Ubuntu, and is an easy one-liner to clear up for 8.04.1. Any regressions for regular CDs will be obvious because the boot menu will not be constructed correctly.

This bug was fixed in the package gfxboot-theme-ubuntu - 0.6.0

---------------
gfxboot-theme-ubuntu (0.6.0) intrepid; urgency=low

  * Evan tells me that /syslinux/syslinux.cfg is a valid syslinux
    configuration file path too (LP: #234005).

I verified that the 8.04.1 test CDs have a working gfxboot, so this patch/the build did not cause a regression. The bug does not have sufficient "TEST CASE" information to verify this bug fix, but the patch is pretty obvious. Thus I consider this verified now and will copy to hardy-updates. If you still have trouble with the 8.04.1 CDs, please report back here and I will reopen this. Thank you!
