Re: New Debian-Edu/Skolelinux test CD image 1 (test01)

Congratulation and a big thanks from me, i will try my best to test !

After months of hard work, a new Skolelinux CD image is ready. This is
the first test CD preparing for a debian/etch based release. It is
available from FTP, HTTP and rsync. The image size is 695 MiB.

There are a lot of changes since the last CD release based on Sarge.
Here are some highlights

    * Ported the installer to etch using d-i beta3
    * Linux kernel 2.6.17
    * KDE 3.5.4
    * New versions of educational software and improvements in the
      package choice
    * LTSP 0.93debian1
    * Now support resizing of LVM volumes without umounting
    * Improved laptop support (hybernate, extra keys, wireless
    * The installer now support encrypted file systems
    * New debian-edu-expert mode with new profile and manual
      partitioning to enable a bare-bone system without any services,
      for single-service installs
    * Debian-Edu bootsplash during the boot process
    * Custom kdm and kde artwork

Some features are still not working as they should. We are aware of
these at the moment:

    * LTSP server is not set up during installation. It can be set up
      manually after the installation.
    * LVM partitioning fail if an existing LVM partition is found on the
      hard drive. A workaround is to boot with boot param 'linux
      debian-edu-expert' to get the manuall partitioning. This will be
      fixed in the next version of debian-installer.
    * Clock sync config with NTP client/server is not correct.

To download it, use either of these methods:

  rsync ftp.skolelinux.org::skolelinux-cd/debian-edu_etch-i386-test01.iso

The next developer meeting is tomorrow. More information available
