http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/13237 : This one is new:
If you choose to configure network manually (by entering IP, net mask, broadcast IP, ...) and then you choose to use that settings in the installed system, the setup script may not update correctly the broadcast IP and even give an invalid one. This happens when use any IP with at least one of the bytes different from the default one (e.g. 192.168.8.2, which would give an incorrect broadcast IP) or with more than 8 digits (e.g. 192.168.0.27, would give an invalid broadcast IP). I attach a patch to the setup script to solve it.
Your patch looks good to me. I don't want to delay the release for another week just for this though. see ticket.
- If the release is going to be numbered 2009.02 the isolinux images
have to be rebuilded for consistency, 2009.01 appears in the boot screen.
Nice, a token that will always remind us of the great time we had building this thing and eventually doing the (bit delayed) release. Let's keep this :)
- Now in rc.conf if you use local time it appears
HARDWARECLOCK="local" instead of HARDWARECLOCK="localtime". Just if you didn't realized, in case "localtime" is needed for something. I know rc.sysinit uses it, but it's always in an "else" branch, so no problems there.
Can you report this bug please?
PS: to all testers, if you can confirm that things are fixed, please say so in the appropriate ticket. (and for the 64bit/usb things please mention you have tested it on the appriopriate platform)
