Bug#688247: Bugs in template handling

Steve McIntyre
Package: yaboot-installer
Version: 1.1.22
Severity: minor
Tags: d-i

Two clear issues here, both relating to the mountvirtfs() helper
function in postinst and use of a template there:

 * If mounting of /target/sys fails, then the template
   yaboot-installer/mounterr will be used. That includes the text
   "Mounting the proc file system on /target/proc failed." Should we
   have a more generic message here for a failure to mount, or move to
   a separate template for /target/sys ?

 * We have exactly the same template in use in quik-installer,
   yaboot-installer, nobootloader and (soon) grub-installer. Can we
   please move these into a common place?

yaboot-installer is no longer used, powerpc and ppc64 ports have moved to grub.

So closing related bugs.
