comment How can I receive syslog logs from a networked system?
Heh, well that can be complicated. There's no reason a package name can't start with a two digit number, and .d/${package}-.conf are all reserved to the packages (although one is unlikely to have conflict for e.g. 72-local-myconf.conf). Secondly, it's important to try to write configuration files such that the order isn't critical. For example, a configuration file provided by 0access.conf from the hypothetical "0access" package would be applied before most configuration files starting with a two digit number.

comment How to create debuginfo package?
For ubuntu build chroots, installing pkg-create-dbgsym will cause packages built in that chroot to also output -dbgsym packages when stripped. This works for pbuilder, sbuild, cowbuilder, etc. and is how the "automatic" -dbgsym packages are generated in Soyuz.

comment Weird looking screen after Ubuntu Server 11.04 boot
The kernel now has KMS (kernel mode setting), that uses the in-kernel graphics drivers to attempt to initialise any discovered graphics hardware. If your device has a graphics adaptor (likely, as you've attached it to the monitor), the kernel will try to do something (although it may not select the optimal driver, or may be hopelessly confused).

comment How can I customize my kernel configuration?
If it works without it, as you describe, you don't need to do it (11.04 is two releases newer than 10.04). Some people may have more heavily customised systems, and may find that they are not generating an initramfs automatically, preventing boot. In this case, they may need to force the generation through a manual script.

comment How can I customize my kernel configuration?
From wha I can tell, if you have the right other packages installed, you don't need these entries, because they will be provided by the other packages (e.g. initramfs-tools adds scripts for creation/removal of initramfs, for properly installed kernels). On the other hand, if you're constructing a system from almost nothing, this may not be the case, and you'd need extra scripts.
