My current install and upgrade
Well, over here in modem-by-night land, things go a bit slow. However,
I've got my two systems doing their thing (alternating with the one phone
line) to help out.
System a: Doing an install from 2.1.4 disks, looking good.
System b: Doing an upgrade from an out of date slink, wait and see time.
Big problems now are with mirrors. Non-us is pretty bad, but (was is
Hammish that posted it?) I've got another mirror to try. Also, I can't
get a good download of Branden's latest X packages. However, I'm guessing
he'll get another set before I finish downloading this set. Anyone feel
like mirroring Branden's directory on master? I'm also trying the
2.2.0-pre3 kernel. I can't get ppp running (that's why I'm upgrading my
main system today, hopefully it's an old package), but it looks like an
interesting road ahead. That was the first time I tried to make a kernel
as modular as I could.
Anyway, I'm testing what I can as fast as possible because things are
getting close. Keep an eye out for the next set of X packages, check out
those docs that APH is working on, and don't forget that we are looking at
a release by the end of the month.
Keep those test reports coming!
