install bug for HP 6000 series


When prompted to change DVD's for the packages, dvd cd drive would not open, after answering no and clicking continue it did open put in #2 dvd and of course it complained about that when it came time to install the packages from the boot install disk. It asked for the #1 disk and I could not open and change it, unplugging power was the only option. So very likely at the disk change points the drive is held in mounted mode and won't let the eject button work. So how to report this to developers?

I tried emailing it and it just came back some header missing or? It seems somethings are purposely made difficult with some linux stuff. For some of us more brain dead older ones, when it comes to something as simple as an email they need to make it a bit simpler.

The only other thing that I can think of is to join the Debian mailing list and write to them.

https://lists.debian.org/

https://lists.debian.org/users.html

Sometimes it's difficult to have simplicity in a fallen world.

I looked at those links and that is all as clear as mud to me. That site really could use a UX design person.
I'm using my windoze pc for this stuff since I don't have the linux one totally set up yet.

Agreed-

If a designer was involved the all white pages wouldn't be so blinding.
I'm a sketch and oil painting artist......so I get what you're saying and can appreciate it.
Color makes all the difference IMO:-

Good luck with getting Debian all set up the way you like it.

it's not just the colours.
the debian web pages are labyrinthine & unintuitive.

but it's all there, and op will just have to grit their teeth and find their way through that jungle.
"difficult" is no excuse.
