Re: Hows Alphadebian doing?
I don't really want to use another distribution or operating system on my
alpha. But at the moment it's not okay for me...
there is no stable debian cd which boots correctly. The installation disks
are only avialable for some webpage and not from the debian mirrors...
and you have to do many things... looks very alpha (not the processor ;) )
ARC console doesn't seem very good supported at the moment... and the whole
installation procedure seems to be very unstable..
And there is not much traffic on this mailing list...
If I have missed something please _tell_ me and I'll help the deibna-alpha
project as much as I can... But at the moment I'm not able to see someone
working on it!! (???) why???
