There is still a nit or two to fix, I'm running into them as I rebuild the ISO after fixing the prior issue. But, right now, I can get the ISO to boot enough to get to a shell (the "init failed due to inability to mount '/'" shell, but it is still a shell). :) Once I get what I have now into a state where it's somewhat committable, I'm going to create a project branch to sand off the edges, instead of doing it directly in head, since there might be some edge cases for non-x86 architectures. (But some other architectures do not have the "too big" problem.) Once that is merged, I fully intend to merge this to stable/11, provided there is no major fallout. With what I have now, disc1.iso is 630M, and the disc1.iso.xz is 554M. I'll upload an image somewhere public for people to test 11.0-BETA1 on hardware, KVM, etc. One thing to note, though, there appears to be a significantly non-zero speed decrease, though this may just be because my CD-ROM is USB-based. When I have the ready-to-commit result, I'll test it on a machine with an internal CD drive. Glen
