Release 0.02:

Bugs in this release that you should know about.

expat parser support not in python package

The expat parser support was missed when building the python package, causing some software that uses the python's expat interface to not compile.

findutils-4.1 directory out of place

A 'findutils-4.1' directory has gone astray in '/usr'. Just another silly bug.

version.h and autoconf.h missing

The two files, version.h and autoconf.h are missing in /usr/include/linux/ resulting in some software to not compile cleanly or not compile at all. To fix this run the 'make include/version.h' command in /usr/src/linux/ after having the linux-sources package installed and the /usr/src/linux symlink made. For autoconf.h, run 'make menuconfig' in /usr/src/linux/ and save the kernel configuration, this will generate the /usr/include/linux/autoconf.h file according to the kernel configuration.

Emacs problem

There is a silly bug in the installer, libpng doesn't install if GNOME wasn't chosen. So, if your emacs doesn't work, try installing the libpng package.

No PS/2 mouse support

PS/2 mice are not known to work in X. Although serial mice work just fine.

loopback block device problem

After unmounting a filesystem image from a loop device, it doesn't get freed properly resulting in an unclean unmounting of "/". Note that this bug doesn't appear to cause any harm. A fix would be greatly appreciated.

No filesystem check on bootup

Due to some unknown reason /sbin/fsck doesn't resolve the libext2fs shared library on the first boot. So the checkfs init script is not run by default. This is mostly harmless.

Single user mode prompting normal startup

After passing the "single" boot parameter and entering the single user mode, sulogin is used to avoid a user getting a root shell. But the sulogin prompt asks to press control-d for normal startup. Any suggestions for a fix.

kmod failing to execute modprobe

The following three lines appear just after the SCSI subsystem driver is initiated on kernel boot.
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2

Use "dmesg | more" to take a look.
