Sysinstalls and isos


The daily snapshots mentioned earlier at http://chlamydia.fs.ei.tum.de/ were garbled if you downloaded them via the web before today. (FTP downloads worked dandy.) It’s now fixed.

Robert Garret is working on a new system installation method. The consensus so far seems to be that the installation CD should be a “live CD”, meaning that it boots and runs a full system, whether or not it can see the installation system’s hard drive.

He’s also decoupling the start of installation – booting, partitioning, base system, etc. – from the third-party software installation, which will be nice for anyone who’s endured complete reinstallations because something in the XFree86 setup process got all mangled. My personal record is 4 reinstalls.
