Bug#379513: Installation Failure


Further to my previous-
After the error is reported pressing any key causes the installation to continue "starting card serveces", and then displays a  further screen saying "no ethernet card detected" The D-Link PCMCIA card is not amongst the available options"

When I select "Go back" on this screen and then select "execute shell"
uname -a produces ouput:
"Linux (none) 2.4.27-2-386 #1 Thu Jan 20 10:55:08 JST 2005 i586 unknown"
The last few lines off the dmesg display are:

isapnp: Scanning for pNp cards
isapnp: No Plug and Play device found
Linux Kernel Card Services 3.1.22
   options [pci] [cardbus] [pm]
Intel ISA PCIC probe: not found.
Intel ISA PCIC probe: not found.
Intel ISA PCIC probe: not found.

When running in expert mode the installer says that the i82365 (for the Cirrus logic chip which i think is used on the particular machine as the io controller for the pcmcia port) is needed
if this step is by passed it then starts the Card services, reports that some modules (the ide modules and isofs module are not yet available and the reports that no ethernet card has been detected and gives a list of cards .
breaking to the shell at this point gives a similar display except that isapnp is run after Crd Services has been started, and the Intel ISA PCIC probe is only run twice.

What was the exact error? You should be able to see that in output of 
'dmesg' or 'nano /var/log/syslog' from VT2.

What kernel version was the installer running ('uname -a')?

It looks like you don't actually need that module. So what happens if you 
boot the installer in expert mode and unselect that module during 
hardware detection?
