1897 (regression introduced on 2007-11-26) (#37722)
1898 - install linuxwacom if needed
1899 - load disk/ide before disk/scsi, or else sata_sis may be loaded for a
1900 SATA controller and trigger pata_sis loading before sis5513 is loaded,
1901 which would defeat an eventual alias to sis5513 for a PATA controller
1902 - cpufreq:

1904 (family 6 model 11, for example Toshiba Portégé 3500)

1951 - fix handling LVM VGs with "-" in the name (#37267)
1952 - call X with -nolisten tcp to avoid "security" issues (#18320)
1953 (nb: this implies "xhost+" helper prog is not useful anymore)
1954 - do not propose ext4dev filesystem during install (#37157)
1955
1956 Version 10.6.8 - 24 January 2008
1957
1958 - 2008.1 beta1 logo
1959 - look for LVM PV on non partitioned disk before looking for DOS

1972 - do not sort languages in "choose language" step in graphical mode, since the

1990 that we can access main32 on x86_64

2025 - partitioning wizard: ensure existing_part and resize_fat are proposed before
2026 wipe_drive
2027 - in case of ftp/http media, we select basesystem before doing
2028 bestKernelPackage so we must ensure the choice callback selects the good
2029 kernel (reported by Thomas Spuhler on cooker mailing list)
2030 - do propose "Suisse" after selecting french language (#34675)
2031 - use time() to know when to timeout (when launching installer X server)
2032 since the loop may be slower than 1 second (xf86misc::main::Xtest takes time
2033 on a failing X server on i810). Also print a message telling user to wait
2034 after 8 seconds.

2048
2049 - use /dev/cdrom in fstab, but do not write corresponding udev rule
