Bug#238601: about your Debian installation report

Joey Hess wrote:
Hello, I'm writing you because you filed an installation report a while ago
on an old version of the debian installer. Your installation report was #238601
and can be viewed online at <http://bugs.debian.org/238601>.

Since you filed that report, we have released several much improved
versions of the installer, including our first Release Candidate. We are in
the final stages of preparing our second Release Candidate. I suspect that
most or all of the problems you reported are fixed in the latest version of
the installer, but we currently lack the manpower to check every
installation report. So, I'd appreciate your help.
If you can, please go to <http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer> and
download the latest release of the installer. Try another install and see
if the problem you reported is still present. If you're able to test this,
please send a mail to 238601@bugs.debian.org and report whether the problems
you reported are fixed, or still present.

If you're unable to do this test for whatever reason, please send a mail to
238601@bugs.debian.org and let us know, and we will try to look at your report
in more detail.

Thanks for your installation report and for your time.

See also Bug #268792, that is my second installation attempt on m68k, and so is a followup on this one. Both reports are of installations with the same machine. So #268792 provides new information that is also valid for #238601, but with a newer version of the installer. Because this bug (#238601) is a success-report, and the second attempt had more failures I opened another bug (#268792) to descibe those. Maybe these bugs should be joined/merged? But as I don't know if that should be done, and if so how to acheive that, I'll leave that up to you.

I will try and take a day off in the weeks to come, to test the newest installer on my m68k machine. I'll update #268792 when I've done that, because the error described therein makes it very hard to install Debian on my machine.

HTH, Erik.
