Re: Official 2009.08-RC1 snapshot images for public testing

just installed here using the net-install iso. timezone/utc set the correct time after using the ntp option.

btw... i think you should choose a simpler approach on the 'fs mountpoint' the way is now its a bit hard too understand

thanks for the new iso smile

PXE: IMHO this is not possible out-of-the-box. Cause the underlying system is different against for ex. tpowa's archboot (which keep everything in initrd image, definetely an advantage for this case).
So it's neccassary to export the squashfs/aufs via something like nbd/vblade/iSCSI or similar.
I will look at this next weeks to find a solution or workflow...
Otherwise (cause AIF could be obtained as a package) installation is always possible from a PXE-booted Arch system.

actually, pxe-booting and better cooperation/integration-with-archboot-proposal was one of my post-2009.08 ideas.  (so much for the suprise effect lol)

Hmm it would be nice if you could PXE boot  a netbook from your Desktop Arch install.

But i am not expierenced with either PXE or devlopping it. For servers this would be nice , for netbooks /tops you could also use the usb image

We will remove soon the torrent files of 2009.08-RC1 from the tracker. So here is no need to seed or feed
them anymore...

Also this thread could be closed and get unsticked...

The release date is planned latest on 09. August 2009, but we like to
have pacman 3.3 on the snapshots if possible.

Will be soon.
