I tried to install a brand new system with the latest installer image,
but it failed during SATA detection... Sata_nv module said: "sata is

is a kind of bug in the pre 2.6.10 kernels, and it had been resolved
in 2.6.10, but the latest amd64 installer uses kernel<2.6.10. :( So I
Sure about that?

The latest D-I netinst cdrom only contains modules for 2.6.10-9 and
I'm pretty sure the vmlinuz on it is a 2.6.10 kernel too. Otherwise
the cd would be severly broken and not work at all.
I've checked it again, and you're right!
I downloaded a sarge version from January 14... and it has 2.6.8-9, but the latest sid version contains 2.6.10-9 really.

However I still has some problem with sata (sometimes the installer hangs up for minutes... and does nothing... is is not frozen... just waiting... for something....), so I am trying 2.6.11-rc4 now....

Fortunately I workarounded the problem :-D It's not the simplest
process... but works.

1. I've just build a DFS (Debian From Scratch) boot CD with a 2.6.10
(all things compiled into the kernel, no modules at all).
If you have a module less kernel then you can just use that with the
make-cd.sh script to build a D-I cd.
Cool idea, thanks! But I need some password to goswin-guest@debian-amd64.alioth.debian.org's password. What is this pass?
