Re: mangle error using Shorewall v 1.4.5 on kernel 2.4.18-bf2.4-sun4u
Huh? I'm guessing you installed the latest stable version (though it's
hard to know, since you never mention what version gave you trouble).
It says right near the top of the release notes:
"At install time, the kernel used is 2.2.20, however a 2.4 kernel, the
latest stable branch is included for those who wish to benefit from it."
If you were expecting it to install with a 2.4 kernel, that's got
nothing to do with Debian "looking unprofessional," "losing
credibility," or being "stupid," and everything to do with your not
paying attention to what you were getting before you installed it, and
assuming it was something it isn't.
If you were expecting the latest and greatest... well, Debian stable
isn't it, and never will be -- check out the "testing" or "unstable"
branches, but don't flame the Debian maintainers when you didn't even
take the time to glance at the release notes.

In short I think it was stupid that the new CD images did not install
the newest kernel. I would hope that in the future these PR issues
would be looked at.
