as i said, i had tried all possibilities, i excluded all the

there are no necessary modules, it doesn't need a module to detect and
mount the CD successfully. therefore i did tried the lightest possible
Please provide us with the following data:
- do you get a dialog saying the installer is entering low memory mode?
yes! it is the message that appears on screen before i have access to
the main menu.
- what languages are offered in the first dialog (language selection)?
the low memory dialog warns me that the installation must proceed in
english, so only english. it also warns i should set up swap space as
soon as possible (which i can't--see other message on this thread).
however, once on the main menu, if i select "Choose language" the offer
of languages is too long to be written here, i guess all languages. i
do not select any language but stay in english, not even a spanish
- if you switch to VT2 at that point (or use the "start a shell" option
in the main menu), what is the output of:
ok, in this case i have to choose the spanish keyboard layout.
- grep ^MemTotal: /proc/meminfo
MemTotal: 54888 kB
- grep ^MemFree: /proc/meminfo
before i do "Detect and mount CD":
MemFree: 32304 kB
after i do "Detect and mount CD" (without loading any kernel modules)
but before i do "Load installer components from CD":
MemFree: 31440 kB
after i do "Load installer components from CD" (without loading any
optional installer modules, so no crypto-modules, eject-udeb,
MemFree: 5032 kB
so, here we can see it! great! it is clearly a question of the flow of
the installer. the actual flow is not congruent with the low memory
mode, it should be possible to mount swap space before i do "Load
installer components from CD".
