Debian 2.0 Mac install feedback
I just completed the base installation process of beta 2.0 on my SE/30.
I had no serious problems with the install process, of concern to me was
that after configuring modules, dinstall told me that the base system had
been configured and suggested that I configure the network. Other issues
I'd like to see addressed:
* The dialog boxes and message files are expecting an 80 column console,
but some Macs only have 64 columns.
* The kernel knows I have a monochrome display. There's no need to ask
about mono vs. color.
* The non-Mac keymaps are superfluous to list as options.
* At a time when the only Linux native partition was already initialized,
dinstall suggested Initialize a Linux Partition with a higher preference
than Mount a Previously Initialized Partition.
* The search for locations of install disk image files should be pruned at
directories whose names begin with a dot (such as ".resource") or otherwise
managed so as to skip the special HFS directories.
* If kernel modules are not supported on the Mac, and none were installed,
there's no need to configure them.
* The system complained about hwclock errors when booting.
I guess that's it for installer-related issues. Like I said, no serious
problems, and things worked as expected. Great job!
