Test of new 2.1.4 boot floppies
An install from the 8 floppies (resc1422.214.171.124.bin, drv14126.96.36.199.bin and the
six base floppies base 14-1 through 14-6 dated 29 December) has just succeeded.
The only flaw: I have a Creative CR-563 (old type 2x drive attached to a
SoundBlaster card). The module installed perfectly but the postinst
creates a link - that seemingly failed with an obscure error message about
back tick quoting.
When I attempted to access the CD-ROM, the link under /dev from cdrom ->
sbpcd0 existed but none of the sbpcd* devices existed.
Fixed with "mknod b 25 0 sbpcd0" in /dev
Other than that, no showstoppers and worked first time.
There are a lot more devices now: many of these (paride under the disks
menu, iso-8059-* under the fs menu) have no explanation beside them.
I don't know where this is configured, but it would be a nice finishing
touch to fill in a couple more before release if this is easy.
