I tested this ISO in the last few days on real hardware, and it mostly
installs a working system (this mail is written on it), but with more
or less annoying quirks:
- the ISO, when burnt to a blank, does not boot. Checked with three
different blanks burnt on two different writers, tried to boot it on
three different drives (SATA or PATA). Checksum of the file was OK.
- the ISO, when dd'ed to an USB stick, boots fine, but then does not
find "the CDrom drive". Manualling entereing "no module" and
"drive /dev/da0" however lets the installation proceed. Inserting a
CD into a drive works too, only at the end of the installation the
installer hangs when trying to eject it (no problem if only the USB
stick is used).
- with the graphical installer, my Logitech USB-Mouse is not
recognized. On the installed system, that mouse works just fine.
- GRUB gave "/dev/sda" as an example where to write the bootloader to.
It had better offered /dev/ada0 ;-)
- I got a working graphical desktop with XFCE, RazorQT or LXDE, but in
all of them the keyboard mapping was US instead of DE. The virtual
terminals were OK, and in XFCE, I could correct the keyboard setting.
- K3B and XFburn did not recognize any CDwriter drive (SATA or PATA).
Hardware support (ATI graphics, Realtek RTL-8110, Sound) was OK except
for the CD writer. Applications tested were: Claws Mail, Konqueror +
Iceweasel, Gimp, Libre office, Gnome Player, all with no problems.
Only VLC had issues with mp4 videos.
Thanks for the great work!
