CSCF Debian Image Bug List

Installation Version 0.6.5

  • USB mouse did not work after booting up
    • Solution: ran mdetect, which said the device was: /dev/input/mouse0
      • ran gpmconfig and gave it that device - it worked
    • Under Linux 2.6, /dev/input/mice should catch all mice. Including /dev/psaux
    • Under Linux 2.4, /dev/input/mice should catch /dev/input/mouse[0-9a-f]. Or something like that.
      • This means you can use /dev/input/mice for X and it handles hotplugging nicely. An alternative to using gpm. (BenKorvemaker)

All versions < 0.8

  • GTK apps are very very slow
    • Workaround is to use GNOME :~(
    • There has to be something better, it works fine in other OSes (FreeBSD) on the same hardware
    • 0.8 uses a 2.6 kernel, which seems to fix this problem

All versions < 0.8.7

  • initrd was built either for parallel or serial ATA machines, and is not interchangeable. 0.8.7+ will have the file /etc/mkinitrd/modules updated such that the "golden" machine will build initrd's suitable for both classes of hard disks. Previous image versions will require copying a magic initrd over top or reinstalling the kernel-image package.

All versions

  • Investigate 32 bit disk usage. It seems to be off by default on at least some PCs (need the hdparm package) - do we want to turn it on?
