    Progeny Announces PGI-based Woody ISO
    Submitted by jdaily on Wednesday, October 23, 2002 – 17:44
    ProgenyIn light of recent negative reviews of Debian in which the installer was roundly criticized, this announcement may have particular timeliness and relevance.

    Progeny has made available an i386 Debian 3.0 (woody) installer image based on PGI, the Progeny Graphical Installer. This is available at http://archive.progeny.com/progeny/pgi/.

    PGI, which was used in the much-acclaimed Progeny distribution (another offshoot of Debian) is an easy-to-use GUI installer that alleviates most user concerns about Debian’s installer.

    I could not get PGI to work on my laptop…it could not get an x-server up and running…I found out that it is becasue XF86 4.1.x does not have support for the Savage family of GFX cards. I think the PGI team needs to have an XF4.2 ISO cd so that PGI can use that rather than 4.1, or atleast give the user the option.
