Package: anna
Version: +N/A; reported 2003-01-30
Severity: normal

I'm only just acquainting myself with the sarge installer CD which was
announced in this week's DWN. Sorry if I'm reporting a bug against the
wrong package; I am under the impression that anna is responsible for
the actual prompts I see (and the bugs reported against it/her seem to
confirm this) but I only just started to try to understand the new
installer and I apologize if I have jumped to incorrect conclusions.

I burned the larger variant (83 meg image downloaded this morning from
which has a size of 87064576 bytes and is dated Jan 25 04:48) and
managed to boot it (which was tricky because I am using an old laptop
with only *either* a floppy or a CD drive -- but I digress :-)

When I get to Load installer modules (fetch from CD), I am presented
with a listing of 40 entries. This is impossible to view because the
screen is only 24 lines and each entry takes up at least one line.

There seem to be duplicates which only differ in their minor version
number, could they be collapsed to one entry somehow perhaps? (Also it
would be nice if these were adjacent in the listing so it's easier to
spot the duplicates, if you can't collapse them into one entry, that

The lack of a more(1) or similar makes it challenging to look at
what's on the system -- I have been doing sed -n 1,24p etc on files
that look interesting but if I happen to look at a binary file,
chances are it will shift the console's character set into graphics
mode and then I will have to reboot in order to proceed (or drive
blind, which is of course also an alternative). I guess I'll file a
wishlist bug about this.

Thanks for the installer, it looks rather promising already.
