GNOME Preview

New BSDInstaller version needs testing

Chriss Pressey announced the 2005.0721 version of the BSD Installer. This version can partition disks and leave existing installed operating systems intact. Also, the entire session is saved in a repeatable script that doesn’t even require the installer to run, similar to RedHat’s Kickstart or other technologies.

There’s more changes, and a new upgrade feature that needs testing. Check the announcement for details.
