I have sucessfully installed BLAG29999.00004.iso on a virtual machine.

"It Works"

I did a text install. Graphical install untested so far.

Available at:
ftp://ftp.blagblagblag.org/pub/BLAG/lin ... .00004.iso

MD5SUM:
1b0a4ebb6959c80d00cd86cf345a0d31

Have fun,

-Jeff

You can't do an "Everything" install though, as it tries to install *anaconda*, which I'm trying to leave off the CD to save space.

A personal workstation install works, and the graphical installer appears to work fine too.

I'm working on blagging things out a bit though... anaconda has changed how it does it's graphics.

Rebuilding a more blagified .00005 ...

It still has fedora all over it though... Anyway the automagick (kickstart) installs are there.

To wipe ERASE your system, at the boot: prompt type one of:
miniblag (smallest install)
serverblag (server install)
deskblag (smallist GUI install)
blagblagblag (install everything on CD)

Pretty useful. ;)

I tested "blagblagblag" with 29k, and it's busted as of .00005 though. I didn't test the others yet.

Jeff,

I've been running BLAG29999.00004 for the past couple of days without
any noticeable problem. I did have to install many of the packages
manually though. In general, things seem faster :lol:

Thanks for a great job, as always!

BLAG 30k gonna be based on FC3.

Ya, you can install it without erasing if you have a free partition. Or you can add a hard drive and install it on there.

Installed blag 29999.00034:

Anaconda crashed on workstation text install while reading packages to install. Some unhandled errors. Might be an anaconda bug rather than a blag issue. If I have time later I'll repeat the same kind of install and see what happens.

Graphical install of personal desktop worked fine. Recognized all hardware. No browsers at all got installed, though the browser icon appeared. Maybe this is related to jebba's long post on slimming down 30k? Anyway, apt-get update dist-upgrade installed firefox 1.02.

I've booted up cleanly a bunch of times, and things look great. Haven't poked around too much yet. Did see that abiword is version 2.0.12. I think the newest release is 2.2.3. Will packages still be updated before the 30k release?

This test box has never run so fast. It's like a new machine. Blag/FC3 rule.

P II 350 mhz
384 mb pc-100
ati mach 64 4 mb
maxtor 9gb

Hmm. Not sure why FC3 is using an old version like that. I'll look into it.
