On a alubook 5,8, testing the
1: It boots correctly
2: Choose language/Country: Works (for German)
3: Choose keyboard: Does work with restrictions for a German one:
German umlauts are unavailable on the (ncurses) installer menu:
Umlauts work on the console.
4: The installer hung for minutes, giving me no messages whatsoever on
tty4 for the reason of this issue: Then, after - for my taste - a
much too long time it gave me back a crashed installerscreen to choose
the network card. At this point I couldn't even change to tty4 or
tty(2?). After a few minutes of waiting I pressed the power button
for a new try.
The reason for the crash *might* have been either that I chose the
wrong network card (eth1) or the fact that I tried umlauts on the "choose
hostname" screen: The latter meant I typed an umlaut which ended in
something like <F1> or <E4> and similarly wrong output. Then trying
the key on the right side of the "Apple" key then unexpectedly worked as an
<ENTER> key, thus setting the "Rechnername" (something like machine
name in English?) with these wrong umlaut substitutes.
5: The installer did not not recognise an attached SCSI disk, that was
connnected to the machine via Firewire 400. I expected the disk on
sda, and I tried to see it with mac-fdisk and with a simple
ls /dev/ and then typing <TAB> to see the optional devices ...
I chose "Festplatten erkennen", something like "detect hard discs,
to no avail ...
/dev/hda inside the machine, was detected correctly with all
partitions, as it seems ...
6: Network (Internet) connection, manually configured because I do not
use DHCP on the router, seems to work ....
After the partitioning screen I rebooted (just to be sure it didn't
change anything ... :)
More tests on the business card iso? Let me know if yes, please ..
