resume current unoff (3rd March) debian-cd (kando.hu)
i just finished my "test"-installation from the unofficial iso images
on kando.hu (3rd March) on my Thinkpad 390E. Some things still dont
work as expected.
- After complete installation (Which worked flawlessly with even detecting
pcmcia + DHCP etc) the "Reboot system" doesnt work - The "dialog" disappears
and reappears after some seconds "reboot" on a second console gives no
output and no reboot - Pressing the "Three-finger-salute" causes the
filesystems to be checked on boot.
- After rebooting the first time into the base installation the PCMCIA
works but the configured DHCP doesnt. I end up having a 192.168.1.1
on the eth0 (Xircom Realport PCMCIA) - a pump -i eth0 solves the situation.
- There seems to be no "clean" way of doing a installation of additional
packages afterwards - Selecting a couple of "tasks" and letting apt
do its work causes the installation to break when apt tries to start
debconf (i suppose), with "Getopt::Long" missing due to an "unconfigured"
or not completely installed perl-5.005.
- After the first try with tasksel i tried dselect with selecting the
xserver-svga (NeoMagic NM2200) etc - xserver-svga gets installed
and gets configure with xf86config but the "test"-run of the Xserver
afterwards fails because "xfonts-base" is not installed and the default
"fixed" font is missing (Could not open default font "fixed"). Installing
xfonts-base afterwards doesnt help because the "Path" to
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc is commented out in the XF86Config due to
non existance during installation i suppose - There should be a
dependency from the xserver-common on xfonts-base i would say.
That far - good work - Installation takes ~2-3 Minutes from a "normal"
CD Rom and is really comfortable (Except the Location/Timezone selection).
