Sending from my phone, so I apologize for the top posting.

Last night I did a real install on a spare laptop using this ISO. It was
ordinary and vanilla, but everything was happy and nice.

My biggest issues were with regard to wireless.

A) There's nothing for wireless networking in the network section. That'd be
B) wpa_supplicant.conf would be a good config to add to the list,
considering we're trying to enforce using that
C) Auto configuring of rc.conf treats wireless interfaces as ethernet.

None of these are really bugs. More like feature requests, I guess.

And one other thing unrelated to wireless:
If I didn't edit mkinitcpio.conf, there's no need to generate the initramfs
again in the config section. Perhaps md5sum the config files before and
after editing to see if a given action is necessary?

Cheers, and sorry again for the top post,

Hello all,
please find new testing images @ http://build.archlinux.org/isos/

This time, there are no big known issues! [1]
I just did an installation myself and it worked, but of course images
require a lot more testing, especially for the exotic things (lvm,
encryption, automatic installs, all new features such as pxe booting,
So please give these images a spin.  They can't be much worse then the
last official release ;-)
If you tested the image and it worked fine, be sure to let us know and
briefly describe which special thingies (if any) worked fine for you.


The more feedback I get from the community, the faster a new official
release will happen.


[1] (I did not figure out the issue i had earlier -
but I re-setup the build chroots and now it's magically fixed.
