Amongst the slew of fixes and improvements there are also some cool new things I'm working on.
First of all, I worked more on the automatic installations. Now you can easily install an LVM based Arch system on top of dm_crypt for example.
You type this command:
aif -p automatic -c /usr/share/aif/examples/fancy-install-on-sda
And bam you have a complete working system with LVM, dm_crypt etc all set up. You just need to change your keymap, hostname, network config and such (or, configure that on the beforehand in the config file for AIF)
Another thing I started working on is a very simple test suite.
Basically, when launching a test, the following steps are invoked
The verification script will check things like availability (and size) of LVM volumes, amount of swap space, keyboard layout, network and so on.
Here's a picture of a rough first version:
Ah. I didn't know you were into Arch Linux development :)
I am probably going back to Arch Linux soon. I miss its flexibility.
I'm currently working in an LFS system to learn a bit more about the structure of a generic distro :)
Anyway, Ubuntu is getting tiresome with all the bad decisions they make FOR you.
