It also seems to be seriously broken now. If I eject the cd when it claims
I can eject the cd, then go through the menus and select reboot, instead
of rebooting it does this:
To return to the installer, quit this shell by typing 'exit' or ^D.
Shared object "libedit.so.3" not found
init: can't execinit: can't execinit: can't execinit: can't execinit: can't
execinit: can't execinit: can't execinit: can't execinit: can't execinit:
can't execinit: can't exec
I guess rather than actually calling reboot() the installer now relies
on external programs for some of this stuff? The interaction between
sysinst and the rest of the system now seems extremely fragile.
