updated KX Light install for Amiga Forever?

I bought the full Amiga Forver 8 premium edition, and thought I would throw the full KX light version onto an old Thinkpad. Unfortunately it doesn't look like it has been updated for at least 7 years! It is still using the 2.6 kernel and only supports 32bit hardware. Granylted, I guess it doesn't need much, but it would be nice if it supported current hardware. It likes to freeze upon trying to create the file systems.

It doesn't freeze on my system but an updated kxlight would be a nice idea.
The workbench could live with an overhaul aswell.

Yeah, sorry the freeze is specifically at the stage where it is supposed to copy wverything to the hardrive if you do the full install.

What filesystem did you you try to install to? ext3?

Did you install from original CD or did you use a iso. Could be a bad media aswell. If you used an iso try to burn on another cd, maybe with slower speed.

It is an official Amiga Forever 8 Premium edition. Now that I think about it, it probably formatted as ext2, since it uses the old sdisk I think. Though it is 2.6.24 kernel, so most likely ext3.

To be fair, it does kind of look like they just burned the DVD and printed the label on it. Doesn't look like a manufactured one.
