Debian-Installer beta 1 released

November 9th, 2003

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:

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:

If your installation was successful, 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!
