Currently we display a page at the start of our package install script and at the start of tl-setup. It can be argued that this could be made more difficult to miss.
One solution could be to add a specific page for platform specific notes at the start of either the package installer or tl-setup that requires the administrator to confirm (perhaps using a checkbox) that he has read the notes.
Another solution could be to have one of the installation scripts automatically open the platform specific notes in a browser.
This is what is written at the start of the ThinLinc server package installer:
> Welcome to the ThinLinc Server Installation Wizard
> This program will help you install the ThinLinc software packages on
> your system.
> Before installing, please see the Platform Specific Notes at
> Press Enter to continue...
> Determining packages to install... done.
The text at the start of tl-setup is very similar to this.
Ideas to improve this:
- A separate page/step in tl-setup/tlinstaller. Perhaps with some kind of icon showing that this is an important step.
- The error message from tl-setup could include a link.
- The installation chapter from the TAG should have a link.
- Perhaps we should have a separate installation guide that includes this.
