INSTALL REPORT

Debian-installer-version: http://people.debian.org/~joeyh/d-i/images/2004-03-07/floppy/{boot,root,net-drivers}.img
Date: 8 Mar 2004
Method: boot from floppy, then modules loaded from the network

Processor: Pentium II (Klamath), 266 MHz
Memory: 95068 kB

Base System Installation Checklist:

Initial boot worked:    [ O ]
Configure network HW:   [ O ]
Config network:         [ O ]
Detect CD:              [   ]
Load installer modules: [ O ]
Detect hard drives:     [ O ]
Partition hard drives:  [ o ] comments
Create file systems:    [ O ]
Mount partitions:       [ o ] comments
Install base system:    [ O ] comments
Install boot loader:    [ O ] comments
Reboot:                 [ O ]
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Problems:

partman-auto: This machine didn't have free space on the hard disk, so
when partman-auto showed its menu during the startup of the
partitioner there were only two options: automatically partition the
whole drive and custom partitioning.  The problem is that the default
option was the automatical partitioning of the whole drive rather then
the custom partitioning.

partman: The smileys are invisible so I could not see which partition
is used and how it is used.  This is because of missing characters in
the loaded font.

partman-partitioning: In order to free space for the new install I
decided to resize an ext3 partition.  The operation finished
successfuly but almost all the time the progress bar was at 0% and I
didn't know when this (quiet long) operation would stop.

partconf-mkfstab: the generated /target/etc/fstab didn't contain entry
for the swap space.  Partman had generated correct file
/var/lib/partconf/fstab.d/partman with swap space included, but in
/target/etc/fstab the swap entry was omited.

base-installer: The default kernel image was 386.  This is a safe
default, but a better had to be chosen (686 on this machine).

base-installer: During the kernel download the message on the screen
is "Installing the kernel ..." (or something like that).  The problem
is that the download can be quiet slow, the user is not informed what
is going on so he/she could think that the installer has crashed.

base-installer: The same problem with the download of the packages
requested by apt-install.

grub-installer: The generated boot menu included only the newly
installed Debian system.  There was also another Debian installation
on this machine and it was not included in the menu.  One possible
place to discover the existing operating systems is partman because
this is necessary for example in order to provide the user with the
option to upgrade an existing Linux system (not necessary Debian).
However there are many different boot-loaders, so we have to find how
partman can make the information about the operating systems available
to all boot loader installers.

Comments:
/var/log/partman was about 250kB and could be even bigger.  This can
be a problem on machines with small RAM.

I have forgotten that I have reported this bug.  I have already made
the necessary changes in base-installer.
