Upcoming Debian 7 - Have they addressed and fixed the following?
I left Debian 6 about a year ago because of problems with the following:
#1) No easy way to install the binary nVidia driver over Noveau.
#2 The text installer didn't work correctly.
Has these two things been addressed in D7? I know distros like 'OpenSuse 12.1' (which I currently use) has a simple way to get rid of Noveau, and install the latest nvidia video driver easy. (via Yast)
The 2nd - installers. I hate graphical installers especially because 90% of the time they don't work. (I tried 5 current distros, they all failed at one point or another. But OpenSUSE12s worked why I'm on this.) Text installers - at least with Debian worked all the time, but it did things I cannot fool with. Like wanting to download 600+ megs of stuff even if I'm installing via a DVD. With my extremely slow connection, 600 megs would me a 6+ hour long install, and at times I have to reinstall it again several times to make it work right.
So is there a new installer for D7? I seemed to have heard that. But does it work practically? I know, I'll have to wait for Debian 7.01 but Debian has been worth the wait, especially if these two problems are fixed once and for all.
