Re: Questions about Netinst and Live CD

Hi Samuel,

thanks a lot for your answer.

Why can't the beep be integrated into the daily builds? This way, the 
function could be tested before the release of the official Lenny 
version. I had assumed that all changes would appear in the Lenny 
version first and would not be found as late as in the official release.

In your Wiki article, you do not address the condition in the Lenny CD. 
Here, one does not directly end up on the line for the boot prompt, but 
one has to press the TAB key first. Then, one can enter the parameter 
for the Braille display. It would be great, if you could also integrate 
this small hint for Lenny.

About the Live CD: maybe we are lucky and the CD contains orca. This 
way, on could press Alt+F2 after the boot of the CD and call orca. 
Unfortunately, I have not been able so far to test this due to problems 
with burning the CD.
