The 10th June deadline of our vaporware competitor is approaching.
I've built another Debian CD set yesterday, which fixes a few things,
and... tadam! has a working graphical installer! The remaining bugs I am
aware of:

- when installing desktop things, postinst scripts get stuck in lpstat
  -r. Kill it from VT2 when that happens.
- I haven't checked whether multiple partition installation works. I've
  added code for it but it's completely untested.
- after installation, /dev/*random entries don't exist for random-egd,
  you need to run dpkg-reconfigure random-egd by hand.
- gnome is unfortunately uninstallable. But xorg is and works with
  almost no configuration (enabling the console repeaters, start it, and
  voilĂ ).

I've only built the 3 first CDs and the first DVD of the lengthy series
of 42 CDs. I don't know if there's real use for the whole series. I
don't know whether I can afford hosting them on people, we'd have to ask
for debian-ports or an official upload.
