Package: debian-installer
Version: 20060813 (home build)
Severity: important
Justification: unable to finish installation on low memory computer


On a i386  PII@200Mhz started debian-installer in low memory mode.
(is a 64Mb computer, so low mem mode is fine)

Network, disk and package handling went fine.

Then a red screen
          [!!] Install the base system
        Unable to install the initramfs-tools
An error was returned while trying to install the initramfs-tools
package onto the target system.

Check /var/log/syslog or see virtual console 4 for the details.

TS apt-install: E:
TS apt-install: There are problems and -y was used without --forced-yes
TS apt-install:
TS base-installer: error: exiting on error base-installer/kernel/failed-package-install

Where 'TS' is Time Stamp.

The installer throwed me back to mainmenu to 'Install the base system'.
