Severity: important
Tags: patch

If /lib/debian-installer.d/S45usb-linux is run on a system without PCI,
it does an "exit 0":

if [ ! -e /proc/bus/pci/devices ]; then
        # PCI not present. quit
        exit 0

However, since this script is sourced from /sbin/debian-installer, not
executed in its own right, this makes /sbin/debian-installer exit, get
respawned by exit and then everything begins from scratch (making the
whole installation system useless since it never reaches main-menu).

Fixing this should be trivial, just remove the exit and change the if 
(negating the test) to

if [ -e /proc/bus/pci/devices ]; then
	(put entire rest of script here)

This affects all non-PCI systems, including the system bochs attempts to
emulate, making testing with bochs impossible. :-)

     - S45usb-linux: Do not die if something goes wrong (in this case, no pci
       detected) because the file is sourced. This was responsible for the
       endless loop when testing d-i with bochs. Thanks Steinar H. Gunderson.
