The hardware detection part of debian-installer needs output strings in
the form of "kernel-module:Vendor Info Model Info"
(e.g.:"ide-cd:Linux ATAPI CD-ROM driver"). To get these lines the
didiscover utility was added.
I'm unable to produce these lines with the commands you recommend. As I
understand the discover manpage you can either add display options or a
--data-path option, but not both at the same time. What we would need is
something like "discover --data-path=linux/module/name --vendor --model
Is this possible with the current discover2?
