Re: linux-image issue

Hi everybody,
I already have a custom debian cd. Is there any simple way to install the etchandahalf linux image? I don't really need it during the instalation, but I need it to support a huawei e220 3g modem once installed.

possibly, which is why i suggest trying to install without it, using a standard
linux-image package. then you can determine if it is really your custom
linux-image that is broken, or something else in the build process. am i
repeating myself here? :)

because there are probably some differences in how it installs from a
debian-installer environment vs. from whatever environment you're using to
install it manually.

from the error message you were getting, it sounded to me like debootstrap was
trying to install it, rather than the usual debian-intsaller hooks for
installing a kernel. so something is very strange with your linux-image

live well,
