Few Suggestions for the siduction Installer
« on: 2011/12/26, 13:26:11 »
I have these minor suggestions for the siduction installer

1 ) Change time zone for Pakistan to its current capital Islamabad than to its 30 years old capital Karachi.

2 ) The real name entry for user has word limitation : would be appropriate to remove this limitation since some people want their machines carry their full real names .

3 ) inculsion of sudo user possible on the installer if considered appropriate .

I hope my small suggestions/requests for the installer will get attention from the developers.

Regards,

one more suggestion/request ( posting as devil asked me to )

a script on siduction might be very helpful which will help download/redownload all the official repos with a wget command all sources.lst for users in case of accidental loss of sources.lst or just want to download one single file instead of manually editing / making sources with chances of wrongly configuring them .im pasting how i have set my sources.lst file

This needs to be done by wishlist bugreport to the Debian Bugtracking System. There is too much environmantal stuff around timezone settings for us to change that without upstream.

Would be nice if the installer could offer:
Venezuela time, -4.5 UTC.
