[Mike Gabriel]How about pre-selecting a more common installation profile for the squeeze release? My preference would be: Standalone Workstation.I like the idea so much I implemented it in the summer of 2010. When installing on a non-laptop computer in a network without a main-server present, the default will be like you describe it. When doing the same in a network with a main-server present, the default will be workstation for non-laptop machines with only one network interface, and thin-client-server for non-laptop machines with more than one network interface. For laptops, the default is standalone when installing without a main-server present, and roaming workstation when a main-server is present. I welcome input on how the dynamic selection of default values is working. To see how it work in detail check out debian-edu-install/debian-edu-profile.
That is really really awesome stuff! What is the default for VirtualBox installation? The profile that gets pre-selected is
main-server workstation ltsp-serverIs that coincidence? Or does it happen non-deliberately? Should we detect VirtualBox installations and offer some other default than the above?
