Cool. So it's not worth testing the latest image yet? I've got the machine to play with for a few days. Final notes: - I selected "Database Server" in the tasksel and got postgres-7.4. Version 8.1 will be in etch. - I don't remember being asked about timezone/clock settings, but that may be my bad memory. - Also had some difficulty with the keyboard selection. In retrospect selecting a "US" keyboard was the right thing, but it was confusing at the time. Though I think I remember some discussion about making it easier (asking the user to type @";:\ and using that to narrow down the possible types). Other than that it went pretty good. Keep up the good work. Have a ncie day, -- Martijn van Oosterhout <firstname.lastname@example.org> http://svana.org/kleptog/ > From each according to his ability.
