I think the problem is the build grabs the default (stable) d i kernel,
but uses kernel modules from testing or unstable, so the modules don't
match. The d i system reports "no kernel modules were found," but it
means, "the kernel modules won't load into the running kernel."
I use debian-cd periodically to generate an install image. I have not
been able to determined, albeit I haven't tried very hard, how to
correct this build behavior. I've not been able to build using debian-cd
an install CD that works.
I always end up using jigdo. If you feed jigdo-lite a local mirror,
after about 10 minutes it starts building the image, and it works.
