There are now two images available for testing. Both images will reformat your harddrive, consider yourself warned.
The first one is almost the same as the regular reinstall image but based on Debian Etch.
The big differences from the old one besides the Etch part is that this one does partition the harddrive with one system and one data partition.
Further more we are trying out a new repository setup that at least for now have all sources enabled. Which means that you no longer should have to fiddle with apt sources for install and upgrade of packages from the debian repos. To achieve this we have however disabled all debconf questions which results in that all newly installed packages will have default settings.
Known issues at this point.
Upload in the filemanager does not work.
Disk size and usage is reported wrong in the web-ui.
Further more we have not had any time to test mailhandling thoroughly.

The pure Etch install image
The other image is a pure minimal Debian Etch install image. It contains only the bare essentials to boot the system and a running ssh-server.
This install creates three partitions on the disk. One root partition with the OS. One unformatted partition and last on the disk a 1GB swap file. The size of the root partition is adjustable by adding a file on the USB install medium called bubba.cfg
Add a line something like this:
Code: Select all
The system is further more configured with a static IP address of 192.168.0.50 and has a root account with the normal password of excito

If you find any bugs etc in any of the images. Please add your comment here. Or email email@example.com. We will look into the possibilities on setting up a bughandling system, most likely flyspray, later if needed.
