16:22 Changeset [24009] by geofft
Two user-friendliness tweaks to the installer. - If you have ubuntu-desktop installed, suggest using sudo to become root. - Don't prompt about debathena-build-depends; it's a strange question for normals, and devs are assumed to be able to know how to install this package on their own.
