Install report testing 26apr03 netinstall images
Here are my experiences from trying to install the 26apr03
netinstall testing images from
* CD boots fine.
* Selecting Language 'German' gives a segmentation fault,
possibly because of the Euro? Selecting British English
language chooser: info: debian-installer/locale=de_DE@euro
language chooser: info: debian-installer/language=de
language chooser: info: debian-installer/country=DE
Does not give much more information.
I tried to reproduce this a second time (after a reboot, but
it did work then). Will look into this, sometimes my return
key gets stuck, maybe it is connected with this.
Will look into this.
* Selecting the german keyboard does not work either.
kbd_chooser's postinst exited with status 35584
installer: Configuring 'kbd-cooser' failed with error
Will file a bug against kbd-chooser, if noone objects.
* Trying to use the current partitioning (4 primary partitions,
1 for boot, 1 for /, 1 for swap, 1 unused) does not work.
Neither does repartitioning manually. Complains about not
having LVM modules, btw.
Errors modulo some typing mistakes:
Failed to create swap space on
please see tty3 or /var/log/messages for more information.

partconf's postinst exited with status 7680
installer: configuring 'partconf' failed with error code
Automatic partitioning did work however.
I will try to reproduce it and file a bug against partconf.
This did work last week.
* Detecting the ethernet card did not work for me.
Configuring 'ethdetect' failed with error code 256
Insmoding the module (ne2k-pci) however works fine.
Same as last week, see Petter Reinholdtsen's reply
to my posting last week.
* Configuring the network works fine now: I marked
bug 189808 as done.
* Afterwards installation hung in trying to install gcc-3.2-base,
which was not available. Errors did scroll by at this moment
much too fast, btw. Scrolling too fast across important error
messages is a severe UI issue IMHO, especially if the normal
menu comes up, as if everything had worked.
I stopped there.
I hope this is helpful. If it is and I've got enough time, I
will repeat this with the next versions. I am really looking
forward to the new installation system.
