Bug#430388: isofs bug in "etch" netinstall CDROM image
Package: netinstall CDROM image
Platform: Sparc sun4m SPARCStation20
When attempting to use the netinstall CD image I
consistently get to the point where it tries to mount
the installation media to install the base programs
necessary for network package download but the mount
isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=sr0,
in the system log. The installation screen assumes
that the CD is not in the drive.
The CD is readable by a Debian-3 installation that
also exists on the target machine...so, I can only
assume that the Debian-4 installation process (isofs
driver) is buggy.
Multiple copies of the CDROM (burned at low speed)
fail at that same point.
CDROM: ancient SUN SCSI external CDROM drive.
Also, trying to manually mount the media with
mount -t isofs -o ro /dev/sr0 /cdrom
fails with "Device not found" error...Drop the -t
isofs and it errors with the iso_fill_super: error
