Base System Installation Checklist:

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


*       During install, while the base system was being copied/installed, I 
switched to
another virtual console to see what modules were loaded. I re-did the check 
after the
first reboot (between base system install and system post-install 
While I knew the network hw had been detected and configured via dhcp right 
from the bat,
the sound hardware was not. This is a regression from installer 20040408, 
where both the
nic and sound hw were detected.

*       Actually, while the built-in NIC (matching module: 8139too) was 
loaded and
properly configured (DHCP) during the first stage of the install, once the 
system has been
rebooted, I saw that the nic's modules were no longer configured nor even 
The file /etc/modules contained no entries for the built-in nic, the 
built-in audio
or even the system's tvcard. (The tvcard issue was already reported in bug 
#243233.)  It is like if the installer forgot to write to /etc/modules 
after detecting the hw.

*       This motherboard (and another used, see below) is "apm capable", 
i.e. apmd
_can_ fully shut down the machine. Yet the installer did not notice that 
and did not try
to load apmd. It should.

*       There are other issues (usability of manual partition, etc.), but 
right now
the bigger issue is to get all the hardware recognized and all the required 
modules loaded in a "persistent" fashion (survives a reboot).  There has 
been clear
regression in that dept. since d-i 20040408.

*       These issues also occured on a machine using a Gigabyte 7VAXP (uses 
a VIA KT400).
Such a motherboard uses the same NIC & sound kernel modules. It has the 
same video card
(ASUS Radeon 9200SE 64MB AGP).

This was transient breakage in testing; a bad discover/discover-data
combination failed to detect any hardware. It is now fixed, we recommend
you apt-get install discover1 to fix it. Or, try a new installation with
beta4 of the debian-installer.
