Hi,

although (as others pointed out) a reboot may be necessary one way or
the other, my opinion would be: Why not?

Currently you are *forced* to reboot which now seems not to be a must
have.
Nobody is forced. You must be misremembering things.
Obviously you are the one misremembering things:

We are talking about a live cd installation, yes?

Are we? If I understand the proposal correctly it also includes
rebootless switching from the installation DVD into your newly installed
system.

Ok, one more simple reply- No, this is *just* a LiveOS thing, that has nothing to do with the traditional^2 (non-live) DVD installer. Though one could of course imagine architecting something like that, but that _would_ boil down to more or less the same thing as opensuse appears to be doing with kexec.

peace and g'nite...

You can close the installer then.

But why would I want that? If somebody installs Fedora, I'm sure he
wants to actually use it and not the slow livecd. So the rebootless
feature only makes sense if one can switch rebootless to the installed
system - from the livecd as well as from the installation DVD.

Regards,
Christoph
