Bug#293506: Debian sarge RC2 NewWorld PowerMac installation report


I'll give it another try on Monday or Tuesday -- next time I have access
to the subject computer.

I figured it was a typescript.  Is there some magic command in vim that
will turn a typescript of a curses program into readable text? All the
screen manipulation escape sequences make it difficult to read.

Certainly "cat" will reproduce on the screen what I saw as I was running
the program -- minus the pauses for reading stuff as it flies past.  But
that's not really much better.

Just a thought.  Obviously you were able to extract useful information
from it.  How did you do that?
