 Paldo-Installer now in testing
Hi there,

good news. We managed to put the new paldo-installer to the testing branch. Now everybody can test it with the live-cd in 32 and 64 bit.



Features of the installer 0.1.3

  • language selection
  • you can install it on 4 partitions (boot/root/home/swap)
  • add one user account (we will add an option to add more than one later)
  • autoformat unformated partitions
  • it has a nice gtk-gui and is easy to use


What we need you for

We want to add the installer to the next stable release of paldo so we need you as beta-testers. Tell us what went wrong. What we missed. What is not so good. etc.

Here are some examples what you can test

1-set: paldo on one partition (root)
2-set: paldo on two partitions (root+home, root+swap, root+boot)
3-set: paldo on three partitions (root+home+swap, root+boot+swap, root+home+boot)
4-set: paldo on four partitions (root+home+swap+boot)

We are working hard to get it done the way we all like it.

regards

Philip M

The ISOs before 2007-10-16 20:53 GMT where buggy. It should now be fixed. x86 needs still a final test on a real PC but for x86_64 it is all fine.
