Bug#647211: Mini image uses old kernel

Package: cdimage.debian.org


I've just installed testing on a laptop with a very recent Ethernet
chipset, only supported by Linux 2.6.38 and later.

I started with the "mini" image, and failed, being unable to use the
Ethernet interface.  It turned out that the mini image uses the older
kernel (the same as in Sarge), rather than the more recent image found
int he "netboot" image (which is what I finally used).

I'm not objecting to the fact that "mini" uses an older kernel; but
I object rather strongly to this being completely undocumented.  It took
me the best part of two hours to work out what the issue was, and that
a netboot image would solve my problem.
