Slink CDs available
With the Bug count under 20 now, I figure it's time for some final
testing of Slink.
For CD beta testers I've put the 2 i386 binary and 2 source images up
on a server in Michigan (US), accessible via ftp, http, and rsync:
-rw-r--r-- 588021760 1999/02/02 20:17:16 slink1.raw
-rw-r--r-- 546574336 1999/02/02 20:20:57 slink2.raw
-rw-r--r-- 632743936 1999/02/02 20:25:00 slink3.raw
-rw-r--r-- 590200832 1999/02/02 20:29:00 slink4.raw
total size is 2357541044
Just the first 2 are necessary to test the install, and if you're
lucky you can get by with 1. :-) They're completely unofficial, but
made with Steve McIntyre's slink-cd deb, and so should approximate
what the final CDs will look like.
If you're just testing the 2.1 upgrade, and not the CDs themselves,
all you need is the APT deb in /debian/dists/slink/main/upgrade-i386
on any mirror. Put this in /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian frozen main contrib non-free
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US stable non-US
And then run "apt-get update" and "apt-get dist-upgrade".
The links for these images are on my site, http://netgod.net/ --
instructions on burning them are at http://cdimage.debian.org/ and in
cdrecord docs. Please let me know what problems remain, or if you
prefer pre-burned CDR.
BTW the vote for the next Debian Project Leader is almost over (17
hours to go) and I'll post the pic of the winner. :-) The nominees
are BenC, dark, Knghtbrd, and wichert.
See you on IRC.
