As usual, it crashed when it tried to initialize the graphical installer.
Messages were substantially the same as before with minor variations
attributable to the lack of a USB mouse and the different disablement.
something similar here, experimenting with a PowerBook6,7 MacRISC3 Power
DFB's behaviour seems to depend from both specific gfx driver and input
module being enabled or not.
In my case disabling linux_input causes a crash, no matter the USB mouse
is plugged in or not.
Also, i wonder why booting with the NEWT frontend, exiting to a shell
and then doing
works, while a straight boot with the GTK frontend causes a crash, as
directfbrc is the same in both cases.
Is this a timing issue related to the order processes are started in the
d-i ? or cdebconf initialization togheter with DFB initialization causes
I remember at Extremadura, with Sven's PPC, we had to launch a gtkdfb
app first, kill it, and only then start cdebconf with GTK frontend to
get things working.
I'll soon setup a wikipage where to collect datas from my recent g-i on
