After a failed GUI upgrade, I reverted to a text mode install. Evidently
the database got converted to the new db format and I could proceed.
After the "Transfering install image to hard drive" the following
ugliness got splashed on the installer screen.
make history : Reading config from /etc/news/inn.conf and
useradd : new group name=maillnull uid 47 gid 47 /home/var/spool/
The cd change worked just fine BTW.
And a note on the splash screen. It comes up with an "enter Control X for
text mode", if you do that or dont it still boots into text mode, which
could be confusing someone (like me) that didnt expect/want the alternative
(GUI) mode, if it exists.
Also found in upgrade.log

I manually did an ifup eth0 and then it worked, also did a depmod -a.
But this worked 100% better than the GUI upgrade.
Can this behavior be reproduced in Pinstripe (beta-5)?
Dont know, I wont get Beta5 till Mon/Tuesday
TUI Server install of Beta5 did not show the uglies mentioned. Closing out as CURRENTRELEASE (Beta5) fixed.
