Bug#366979: installation report: ppc daily build - hard disk not detected

Package: installation-reports

Boot method: CD
Image version: Daily bizcard image downloaded on May 10 from

Machine: PowerMac G4 NewWorld, 500Mhz
Memory: 1GB

Output of lspci and lspci -n:
No way to copy/paste this, sorry.

Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot worked:    [ O ]

Reboot:                 [ ]


Initial boot works, although I have to use "video=ofonly".  That's
fine, but the video is then right-sifted by approximately 1/2 the
screen.  That is, the text that should really be on the far right of
my monitor, wraps around and is displayed on the left side.  This is
on a CRT monitor using the ADC port on my video card.

The background for the menus is red instead of blue.

My harddrive is not detected so I am unable to partition.  lspci shows:
0001:11:04.0 SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic
53C896/897 (rev 07)
0001:11:04.1 SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic
53C896/897 (rev 07)

Let me know if I can provide further debugging information.
