Hey there, tested another install iso:
source: netinstall in virtualbox using eth0 with dhcp
time: chicago, with utc hwclock
partitions: /boot 200mb; swap 200mb; / rest
filesystems: /boot ext2; swap swap; / ext4
package selection: default base group with sudo
installation: failed to download grub, didn't move on, retried
selecting install, only had to grab the package that failed to
download. Everything continued as expected. NICE!
configs: left them vanilla except changing the hostname
package selection still suffers from
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/22428 FS#22428 - [test iso 2011.01.09]
aif package selection should be sorted more naturally.
I didn't try btrfs so I can't comment on FS#22427 - [test iso
2011.01.09] aif fails to ask for mountpoint when creating btrfs
Overall this installation went without a hitch and I would say that
this iso is ready for an audience who doesn't use btrfs. The only
usability annoyance I encountered was again, FS#22428 which made it
rather difficult to find something like sudo.
Thanks for the great work to Dieter and everyone involved! Hope this
feedback helps you guys.
