-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 It is here, apparently ... the new debian-installer to replace to infamous and archaic boot-floppies... (and sorry for the poorly wrapped message, it should still be readable) Begin forwarded message: Date: Sun, 9 Nov 2003 19:02:33 -0500 From: Joey Hess <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: debian-installer beta 1 We are pleased to announce the first beta release of debian-installer, the new installation system for sarge. This first beta is for the following architectures only: * i386. * PowerPC, with support for the subarchitectures Apple Newworld, Pegasus PPC and IBM RS/6000 (PrEP, CHREP). More architectures will follow in later betas. There are still some problems and rough edges (see the TODO  if you want to help out), but in general, what we need most now is broad testing. That is why we want users to help us by testing this beta. How to try out the beta: * Download one of the available CD or floppy images from the d-i website, at http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/ * Read the debian-installer HOWTO  and install on whatever hardware you can. All testing is valuable, but unusual hardware setups are of course more likely to trigger unknown bugs. Also see the errata  for known bugs and workarounds. * File an install report as a bug against the pseudo-package `installation-reports' in the BTS. Your install report should say whether the install was successful or not, what problems you encountered during the installation, etc. If your installation was sucessful, there will be a template for install reports in /root/install-report.template -- this template is also available on the web . Please use this template when filing install reports. Good luck with testing debian-installer!
