Bug#392303: modprobe sunlance -v fails during HW detection
Subject: modprobe sunlance -v fails during HW detection on Sparc LX install
*** Please type your report below this line ***
I found a problem when installing debian on a Sparc LX using the netboot image found at:
I am reporting this as a bug because this problem does not occur when
using an older version of the same image, found at:
The problem is during the install when the network hardware is detected
the process stops with an error saying that "modprobe -v sunlance"
failed. The module for the onboard network card is not loaded and
installation can not continue since there is no other network interface.
When using the older netboot image dated from March 2005 the network
detection works, the module for the onboard network card is loaded and
Thank you for the excellent work and fine operating system.
