You mist the most important part in that phrase: 'for all stable architectures'. For example, nobody's started to port d-i to s390; as a result, it's not a usable installer for s390 yet. However, it certainly is a usable installer for i386 and powerpc, although there certainly are some issues left. > sounds like a pretty good rationale for moving to anaconda, to me. That wouldn't help, since we'd need to port anaconda to other architectures as well... -- Wouter Verhelst Debian GNU/Linux -- http://www.debian.org Nederlandstalige Linux-documentatie -- http://nl.linux.org "Stop breathing down my neck."
