Bug#296735: installation-reports: [sparc] unusable menus in d-i on Sun Blade 1500

Then the Language selection menu is displayed - there seems to be a
problem with the charset, might be similar to bug #282781 (UTF8). No
cursor or scrollbar are visible, so selection of a language etc. may
be very difficult.

But at this point I had another problem: the machine doesn't seem to
respond to the keyboard anymore, RETURN won't make the installer
proceed and even stop-a doesn't work any more (should get me into

Thanks a lot for a detailed installation report. Reports of d-i and kernel testing on newer hardware are particularly valuable.

A couple of follow-up questions:

1. What happens if you add a debconf/framebuffer=false boot argument? Does it affect the problem in any way?

2. Is it a USB keyboard?
