Bug#331243: Bug report Debian Installer testing amd64
uname -a: No idea
Method: Boot from CD-Rom.
Machine: Desktop AMD64 PC
Root Device: IDE, /dev/hda
Root Size/partition table: -
Output of lspci and lspci -n: There's no lspci on the installer discs :-(

After setting up partitions, the installer shows the "installing
base system" progress bar window. It stays stuck at 1% "Configuring
network" though (odd - the network was already configured before and
worked: It got the domain name from my DHCP server). In background,
installing packages obviously is running nevertheless (at least, on a
console or in /var/log/messages I saw the typical dpkg messages). When
installing base-system, this process gets stuck, too :-(. My guess is that
dpkg is waiting for user feedback at this point which somehow doesn't make
it to the console.
Tried with two different images. Same problem on both.
Unfortunately, I can't give any more feedback as the machine has to get
set up today and I'm using i386 stable now.
