Package: debian-installer
Severity: important


apparently, the PowerPC CD images of d-i completely lack the 2.6 SCSI
module .udebs.  More precisely, the packages:

 scsi-core-modules-2.6.8-<flavour>, and

are missing entirely for all three flavours powerpc, power3, and
power4, while the fourth package of the set,


is included but uninstallable.  This means that it is completely
impossible to install on systems with SCSI disks, or in fact use the
CD-ROM in a SCSI CD drive.

After opening the ISO image and re-building it with the missing .udebs
added, everything worked fine.

Regards, Jens.

Following your message, I went back and tried the latest d-i on one of
the systems that were affected by this problem.  I turns out that the
bug has indeed been fixed, and therefore I'm closing it.  Thanks a
