The partition alignment offset is now configurable (using the
PARTITION_ALIGNMENT configuration setting, in sectors) and the
distribution names and packages in the defaults file have been updated.
Furthermore, the grub example hook has been improved a bit:
- automatically uses the defined proxy, so that package installation
uses the same method as the main install
- debconf frontend set to non-interactive, to prevent an debconf
However, there still seem to be issues related to this hook (recent grub
versions fail to run correctly "grub-install" or "update-grub" and
complain about device mappings); help is welcome.
