Package: tails-installer
Version: 4.4.7+dfsg-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Running 'tails-installer-launcher' starts the GUI installer. I chose
tails-i386-2.0.iso. The installation failed with error message:

    Could not find the 'ifcpu64.c32' COM32 module

The missing module in question is actually provided by 'syslinux-common'
package. I apt-get install'ed it and Tails installation successfully completed.

The bug is that 'syslinux-common' is not in Depends list of 'tails-installer'.
I'm not sure whether this was intentional or not, but at least it should be in

Thanks and regards,
