Bug Description

ubiquity on dove currently has a partman-auto action which causes /boot partition to exist and be formatted as ext2, but unfortunately a separate check script is needed for the existence of this partition to be enforced by partman. This package needs to be created, and to be properly installed on live system.

1. Start an armel+dove image
2. Run ubiquity to the partitioning screen
3. Create any partition layout with / not being ext2, and /boot not existing

1. ubiquity throws a warning that their is no /boot

Michael, could you look into this dove-specific package?


Subscribing ubuntu-release for feature freeze exception:

Justification for FFE:
partman-uboot is a armel+dove specific installer component required for proper behavior in the partitioner due to the requirements needed to bring up the system form the uboot bootloader.

I've accepted the package into universe. It'll need a MIR presumably.
