Hardware recognized, but disks not found during installation
I'm doing a network installation of sarge.
In /var/log/messages of the installation temp ramdisk I see:
user.notice hw-detect: Detected module '3w-xxxx' for '3ware Inc. 3ware
user.notice hw-detect: Trying to load module '3w-xxxx'
user.notice hw-detect: Missing module '3w-xxxx'.
user.notice hw-detect: Trying to load module (3ware Inc. 3ware
7000-series ATA-RAID), usb-storage (USB-storage)
So, why no 3w-xxxx module? And will it help if I get one?
Searching debian website for 3w-xxxx or 3ware reveals nothing, but as
far as I can tell the 3w-xxxx module has been part of the kernel since
2.4.18 and part of the debian kernel since at least 2.4.20 when it was
mentioned in relation to bug #181581.
Now if I build a network-boot-install-kernel that has 3w-xxxx in it, I
suppose the real kernel that gets installed won't have 3w-xxxx support?
If I get an installed kernel working, will dselect then go and install a
kernel without the essential module?
