Re: potato was Re: infomagic



With all the talk of release critical bugs, I am wondering if anyone has tried
just doing a base install, and checking how stable THAT is, without
being TOO concerned about problems with X, and all the other packages.  Does
anyone know?  The way I figure it, once the base install is fairly solid, it may
make it easier to trace some of the other problems.
