Default Bug#573249: Fails to configure with dosfslabel failed

Package: linux-base
Version: 2.6.33-1~experimental.2
Severity: serious

Setting up linux-base (2.6.33-1~experimental.2) ...
open: No such file or directory
dosfslabel failed: 1536 at /var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-base.postinst line 1087, <STDIN> line 10.
dpkg: error processing linux-base (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit
status 9

The line in the postinst reads,

system('dosfslabel', $bdev, $label) == 0 or die "dosfslabel failed: $?";;

Commenting out this line fixes the problem. The configure proceeds and
warns that /dev/hda label may change, or similar. Of course, /dev/hda
is a cdrom device so not sure why configure would even try touching

Running `dosfslabel` on /dev/hda1 results in the same error as from the
postinst script.

$ sudo dosfslabel /dev/hda
Logical sector size is zero.
$ sudo dosfslabel /dev/hda1
open: No such file or directory

Now, /dev/hda1 is not listed in any configfile... :/
