Bug#123926: Woody installation fails to load drivers.tgz from mounted part.
I've a consistent error while installing Debian Woody i386, with drivers and
boot floppies on a FAT partition on the installation drive.
Exact procedure as follows:
I've downloaded files on a FAT32 Partition seen as drive C from Windows,
files downloaded were on the following tree:
If I mount the /dev/hda1 partition on /win before loading device drivers,
and then try to load the device drivers selecting "already mounted
partition", it does not work.
I've tried the following:
Path=/ then using <...> does not show me any tree
Path=/target/debian then OK, Error: Directory does not exist
Path=/instmnt/debian then OK, Error: Directory does not exist
The only way out of this is unmounting the /dev/hda1 (/win) part and trying
the option "harddisk" then selecting the right partition (/dev/hda1 in my
case), entering Path=/debian (ommiting /instmnt as told) and hitting OK
Any dobut reproducing the problem (my english is awfull), please don't
hesitate to contact me.
