|| ||D-I RC2 -- Call for testing|
|| ||Mon, 05 Feb 2007 22:35:10 +0100|
The second upload of the 2.6.18-4 kernel is now available and is used in
all  daily built images of Debian Installer.
We are not completely sure if there will be one more kernel upload for
Etch or not; if there is, it should only have relatively minor changes.
All D-I components have been uploaded as well, including the last
You can help the release of Etch by testing the current *daily built*
images for your favorite architecture(s); these are available from .
Please report any issues you find by filing an installation report .
Reports of successful installs, especially for non-English installs and
architectures other than i386/amd64 are welcome as well.
Note: please compress large attachments!
For installs in other languages than English, please check if the
localization of the installed system is correct.
Note that at the moment D-I will still install the "old" 2.6.18-3 kernel
to the new system. This will change automatically when the 2.6.18-4
kernel images and linux-latest migrate to testing.
We are currently waiting for the 2.6.18-4 kernel to migrate to testing
before we can start to also migrate D-I components, and build, upload
and release D-I RC2.
Thanks in advance,
 With one exception: arm currently still uses the 2.6.18.dfsg.1-9
upload; the latest upload should be available in arm images tomorrow.
