lspci is present in current daily builds. Closing this bug.

Well actually, it's a bit more complicated than that. As noted elsewhere, lspci is pulled in by the "Desktop" task. It's not present in the "bare-bones" ("Desktop" un-checked) install (as one might want to use for a simple server -- a case where you might actually want "lspci" and friends to be present...)

So to put the problem as simply as possible:

The command "lspci" is present during the installation. But after the reboot, whether lspci is present or absent depends on whether the user left the "Desktop environment" checked when the installer was running tasksel. If it was checked, then lspci will be present in the installed system after the reboot. If it was not checked, then lspci will be absent after the reboot.

It seems to me that lspci is such a basic tool that it ought to be present in the bare-bones system, not dragged in as an afterthought by the Desktop task.

As I understand it (Debian bug processing is still a bit of a mystery to me...) the above is what bug#379120 is all about -- so closing 379067 (which is about whether or not to put a "deb cdrom" into the installed sources.list file when installing from a netinst CD, but also mentions the lspci question in passing) is correct, but this is not the correct reason.
