EddyP -- Who's that?
Hello, my name is Eddy Petrișor and I am a happy Romanian Debian user.
The family name is pronounced almost as one would pronounce in English peh-tree-shore.
Involvement in Debian
After using and learing about the Debian way and feeling satisfied with what's been done by now I decided it is time go further.
I have been giving a little part of my free time to the [wiki:DebianInstaller D-I] effort and also other Debian subprojects.
Current intersts within Debian
[http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=376808 PPPoE automatic detection and installation within D-I]. Some things still need to be fixed:
- use the same scheme for additions to /etc/resolv.conf as the general pppd package uses; (this also means having a separate file for the pppoe peer configuration, and not having that in the postinst)
- make the postinst really reentrant by detecting any previous instances of pppd and killing them before rerunning
- do not return to the main menu until actually a pppX interface is up and has an IP, or until a time out (gah, timeouts)
