Bug#278254: installer hangs in "unpacking procps"
Tried the latest Debian Installer, version 11/15/2004. Downloaded the
netinstall.iso of that date.
Result no different: Hangs when selecting linux26. Not exactly in
unpacking procps but "setting up ifupdown".
So since bug 277177 (Oct 18, 2004) no usable Debian Installer for
linux26, when I got an email from Joey Hess about it.
This is the plainest of systems: KT7A Abit mobo with 3 168pin 256MB
memory strips 850MHz Athlon CPU and 2 HDD's: both IDE, one 80GB the
other 20GB and a CD burner, no network card, an exterior 56KB modem
Somebody give me a hint as to how to debug this what exactly his problem is?
I can install default, 2.4.27, which I did and then install the 184.108.40.206
kernel-image, but I don't really want to do that.
Tried it 3 times, same result all the time: the keyboard freezes in
"installing the base system" and you are stuck: use the red button.
