Description of problem:
Your installer is nice and functional, but, what can i do while it is installing? Yeah, i can surf my new installation by chrooting in it, but it would be great if there was a small game somewhere i can play while installing. Can be even nongraphical. Or at least fortune. Would there be enough space for this little feature?

Games are unfortunately very controversial as to choice and end up being hard to
use due to the very high amount of IO that occurs during an install.
Comment 2 Johannes Buchner 2005-08-01 04:06:15 EDT
Well, could it be possible to at least add "fortune" to the installation
environment (sh on tty2)
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2005-08-02 11:28:14 EDT
We don't ship fortune, so can't pull it into the installer.
