Greetings fellow DSLers.
Just noticed that DSL 4.2.4 is available - been playing with dsl-n and 3.2.3/3.2.5 for a whilie now. Since I had just done an hdinstall a few hours earlier for 3.2.3, I know this works fine, but under 4.2.4 the hd-install hangs at
> setting up /home/dsl
> tar: removing leading '/' from member names.
A quick check of the script shows it probably made it as far as line 215 (mkdir $TR/mnt/floppy) but doesnt get past that to create $TR/mnt/hd. I'm guessing that the automounter is somewhat touchy about manipulating it's mount point since dmesg is showing a mount for /dev/fd0 onto /mnt/auto/floppy. The mount naturally fails and hangs since there's no floppy on this laptop. There's also no 'auto' anything in 'ps' so I'm guessing this functionality has been moved to the kernel ? (lsmod doesnt show anything auto'ish either). I tried to edit the fstab and commenting out the auto stuff before starting the hdinstall, but to no avail.
Any ideas or suggestions ? not a bother if I backup to 3.2.3 but this new 4.2.4 releases looks really nice ! Nice Job !
