Grab it while it's hot!
I'm installing it on my Pegasos right now. First experiences:
Network configuration at the beginning of installation is pretty much broken (due to missing curl binary).
gnash (the GNU flash player mentioned in another topic) is not included on the DVD. For that you will need to use factory, or download it from factory and install on your alpha release.
XFCE is not included on the DVD, so those who want to install EFIKA need to fine another light weight window manager (there are numerous others, like fvwm, etc.)
Did not test Alpha5 with EFIKA yet, but factory got a lot more easy to to install:
- improved speed
- swap file creation
- better (but still not complete) hardware detection
One more note: the installer has pata_via as default for the Pegasos IDE controller, which is broken. Please use:
as boot parameter to work around this and load the old IDE driver automagically.
Have a lot of fun!
