Please take care that you use correct package identifications and severity 
levels when filing installation reports. The following is nonsense and 
causes extra work for people on our side: "& other"; "(!?)".
These tags need to be correct for automatic processing of bug reports.

Please provide output of 'lspci -nn' for these devices.

I have no idea what mmc is, but the fact that you get these messages seems 
to contradict your previous claim that modules are not loaded.

To be honest, I have no idea what a "Multimedia card" is and it would not 
surprise me if additional installation/configuration is needed to get it 
working after the regular install. Please try to get further information 
on the debian-user mailing list.
This does not seem to be an installation issue.

Again, no idea what these are. Please ask for help on debian-user mailing

This requires non-free components which is not supported by the installer, 
so this seems correct.

No idea again, but not an installation issue. Please ask on debian-user.

Whether it works out-of-the-box depends on the hardware: some is better 
supported than others. In most cases it needs extra configuration or 
tuning. It is currently not a goal for the installer to set this up 
correctly. Again, ask for help on debian-user.

Try installing the package 'vim'.

Please provide 'lspci -nn' output for this device. I assume the i810 
driver would be better? Did you try editing your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and 
changing the driver in the Device section to that?

This looks like the only issue that can actually be resolved. Reassigning 
to the proper package for that.

Possibly related to previous issue.

Thank you for your report. Good luck with getting the remaining issues 
sorted out. If you can identify any real, specific bugs, feel free to 
file new bug reports about them, but all in all this looks like a 
successful installation to me.
