Re: New HURD CDs!

There have been big changes in the Hurd archive since the F2 images.
It is important that people run /cdrom/upgrade/initial.sh as soon as the
cdrom is mounted.  This upgrades the tarball.  There is a typo in

/cdrom/upgrade/second.sh will install a series of important packages.  I
am experimenting with apt.  dselect still works.

Unfortunately there were problems which delayed the production of this CD
set.  The Hurd sub-mirror was frozen on 3 July.

Please remember that these images are an alpha production of a developing
operating system and that suitable precautions should be taken before
using them.

Comments are welcome.

Have fun.
