    Revised subject: 4.0.2 DVD and CD out now.

    From Klaus Knopper:
    unionfs is broken again, but not as heavily as in 3.9. If you install certain packages with dpkg or apt-get, a kernel oops can happen, though it doesn't freeze the system. This is quite bad for people (like me) who like to test-install new software on the live system, so because of this (and the prior reported bugs) there will be a hotfix of the 4.0.2 DVD soon (probably even before I get a chance to finish the CD).

    If I'm getting ready to do some testing, followed by an install, are the problems such that I should wait for 4.0.2, or am I likely going to be able to work around them? Guess the better question is, any idea for a release date?

    TIA,
    Ewan

    Has there been no word on what's going on with the 4.0.2 DVD? I'm getting anxious to try and learn linux again.

    Volunteers requested to fix unionfs

    At the question: Is there a timeline for the 4.0.1 cdrom?
    Klaus responded on the debian-knoppix mailing list:

    Since both the 4.0.2 DVD and CD versions are basically finished, there
    won't be a 4.0.1 CD version, but the upcoming 4.0.2 release instead.

    The only thing I'm desperately waiting for, is unionfs to get into a
    more stable state. At the moment, there are unacceptable instabilities
    when overwriting existing files on a mounted unionfs directory multiple
    times, resulting in Kernel Oopses after update-menus when a new debian
    package is being installed, and cupsys frequently segfaulting because
    the config file can't be rewritten. I would like to fix that, which is a
    pure unionfs problem, before the release goes online.

    If anybody would like to volunteer helping the unionfs team to find and
    eliminate the bugs, please feel free to do so. Just get the current
    unionfs snapshot from ftp://ftp.fsl.cs.sunysb.edu/pub/unionfs/snapshots/
    and try to reproduce/debug the crashes reported in the bugtracker at
    https://bugzilla.filesystems.org/ .

    I have been trying to find the problem in unionfs, yet with no success,
    during the past 2 weeks now.

    Crois-moi, ton anglais est beaucoup meilleur que mon français! Il y a un forum au sujet de Knoppix pour les francophones ici. Bonne chance!
