Re: D-I update for Sparc (daily builds)

The default kernel for sparc64 installations is now 2.6.12, with 2.4.27 as alternative. For sparc32 support for 2.6 based installations has been dropped as there is no 2.6.12 kernel available (yet?); the 2.4.27 kernel will be supported as long as no decision is made to drop it.

NOTE: As the changes for building CDs still have to be implemented, the
     switch may mean that CD installations may be broken the next days.

If you boot a mini.iso or CD image, you can select the following options:
- install : default installation
- expert  : installation with debconf/priority=low
- rescue  : use the installer for rescue

For sparc64 CD images these options will boot the 2.6.12 kernel, to boot the alternative 2.4.27 kernel, use install24, expert24 or rescue24.

The official images for Sarge are of course not affected by this, only the daily builds are.

What is the address where the daily builds are available? Also, does this imply that there is a *working* bootable image for people having the Fast MMU Access error with any/all CD's they've tried thus far? If it doesn't fix this problem, when can we expect a working image? Also, is there a direct link to an image that *does* work... the only one I've found to be reported as working around this bug, was a daily image from a few months ago, that is no longer on any archives/sites/mirrors that I can find.
