Bug#417749: installation-report: A few glitches when installing on Samsung M40 plus
I have installed debian (businesscard etch RC2) on a Samsung M40 plus
laptop. A few glitches I detected:
- detect network interfaces: I have a wired (with the cable plugged
into computer) and wi-fi with WEP network. The computer has noth a
wired and wireless interface. During detection, the installer shows
eth0 as Ethernet ... and eth1 as Broadcom (4407 I think)
... (wi-fi). When I do DHCP on eth0 (wired), it receives no answer.
When I do DHCP on eth1 (wi-fi), the DHCP server responds. However,
because of the WEP is impossible that it has used wi-fi connection.
Conclusion: the two interfaces are interchanged (the Ethernet is in
fact the wi-fi and viceversa).
- For any of the two interfaces it does not ask me about a WEP key.
- TimeZone: I have chosen English/GB as language (at beginning of the
installation) because I prefer to have English as language. So at
TimeZone the installer proposed me UK/London, but I cannot change it
to France/Paris. I propose to add a button such as "Change proposed
- Upon installation of base system: at swsusp package I was asked "The
swap is not active and suspend to ... is impossible. Continue
without it?" What does yes and no buttons mean here? I choosed
"No" but the installation has continued!
- I chose to use sudo, and not to log in as root. Now, many
applications in GNOME->Administrator menu (changing Date/Hour too)
ask for root password. How can I start them from the menu if I do
not know root password?
- There is no menu in GNOME to suspend to RAM. How can I suspend to
RAM (without executing "echo mem >/sys/power/state")? It is very
useful for laptops!
Sorry to not be more precise, but I provide more information if
Thank you for your work!
