Re: Unofficial Squeeze NetInst CDs: call for testers


Very nice to have an almost official iso!

Does this include the amiga partition map renumbering fix? (I'm just
making sure you noticed it)

Don't know what they're for. Oh, well…

I tested the 1.3.16 one and report a successful install on a
Powerbook6,8! Thanks for your work.

BTW, does anyone sometime have a "black screen" problem during install
(particularly when I'm idle), i.e. backlight goes off and there's no way
of getting it back on? I'm asking because my powerbook also seems to
have hardware difficulties power-wise (look like it's going off when
it's pumping too much current; it can't charge anymore while being on,
etc) and I wondered if it was a software issue.

I didn't follow that thread. Nice to know it's going forward, but I'll
have to add something regarding Milan's work on sysfs-enabled ofpath:
your work is great on this Milan, but is far more intrusive than the
1.3.16 upgrade, and as I see people more scared of the 1.3.16 transition
as your patched 1.3.13a version, I'm a bit puzzled.
Basically, you wiped away all the old SCSI/SATA detection code. It
didn't work anymore because of /proc/scsi missing, but still, this is
quite a change! Furthermore, you didn't push it upstream, and you wanted
an upload without communicating with anyone here. And the way you
introduced it in your answer to Aurélien was (to me) not the best one.
OTOH, Aurélien, your lack of presence, to say the least, during the
previous years didn't help.
But it'd be very nice if you two could work together to get Milan's
patch into 1.3.16 so that we get best of both words for squeeze. And I
think everyone here would support any special request to get it accepted
into squeeze, if there's people from release team wondering what's going
on with this sudden version change.
