Wow, that's great news!
Glad, that we seem to get live images for bookworm!
Thanks Roland and Steve!!!
I have started some testing with debian-live-testing-amd64-lxde.iso image
in a VM, and I'm happy to see that it does not look that bad:
- Testing of the menu entries of live-installer boot menu:
Looks good, as far as I tested.
- Starting the debian-installer from the boot menu:
d-i starts as we know it; after some screens we get the message,
that no kernel modules are found.
Well, that's not a problem of the live system I guess, we know
that the daily/weekly builds tend to get outdated quite fast
I think this will settle down soon, at the latest with the next
- Start-up the live system (LXDE environment):
Works fine. Good performance! (Well, that depends on hardware,
sure, and LXDE is lightweight, but hey, live system is fast, so what?
- Testing some applications in the live system, adding a keyboard layout
for German and switching between English and German; installing additional
packages within the live system:
- Starting the Calamares installer:
Works fine all together.
First got the message, that not enough RAM is available.
Then, installed one more chip into the VM, and here it goes :-)
Installation succeeds, system boots fine!
So, AFAICS: good job guys!!!
