1895 (regression introduced on 2007-11-26) (#37722)
1896 - install linuxwacom if needed
1897 - load disk/ide before disk/scsi, or else sata_sis may be loaded for a
1898 SATA controller and trigger pata_sis loading before sis5513 is loaded,
1899 which would defeat an eventual alias to sis5513 for a PATA controller
1900 - cpufreq:

1902 (family 6 model 11, for example Toshiba Portégé 3500)

1951 (nb: this implies "xhost+" helper prog is not useful anymore)
1952 - do not propose ext4dev filesystem during install (#37157)
1953
1954 Version 10.6.8 - 24 January 2008
1955

2023 - partitioning wizard: ensure existing_part and resize_fat are proposed before
2024 wipe_drive
2025 - in case of ftp/http media, we select basesystem before doing
2026 bestKernelPackage so we must ensure the choice callback selects the good
2027 kernel (reported by Thomas Spuhler on cooker mailing list)
2028 - do propose "Suisse" after selecting french language (#34675)
2029 - use time() to know when to timeout (when launching installer X server)
2030 since the loop may be slower than 1 second (xf86misc::main::Xtest takes time
2031 on a failing X server on i810). Also print a message telling user to wait
2032 after 8 seconds.

2046
2047 - use /dev/cdrom in fstab, but do not write corresponding udev rule
2048 (the rules will be generated at boot time otherwise it won't catch the

2050
2051 Version 10.4.232 - 4 October 2007, by Olivier "blino" Blin
