Re: Etch 1/2 CD images for test


Would it be helpful if I did an Etch install then "aptitude dist- upgrade" on as many Mac architectures as I can? I don't have any non- Mac PowerPC machines, so I can't try the oddball kernel versions anyway. Is there anybody else out there who does?

Hi Rick,

Technically I could, but I'm not sure that I want to.

First, it is quite a lot of work because of all the different kernel flavors
PowerPC has.

Next, all this image really tests is that the selection of the etchnhalf
kernel works, which has already been verified.

And finally, we currently don't plan to create an etchnhalf installation CD
for PowerPC [1], so there's not that much point in testing one either.
