Status on arn, mips and mipsel
Tested today with daily images from 2008-02-09:
arm iop32x (Thecus N2100): installation works, no problems.
arm ixp4xx (Linksys NSLU2): installation works, no problems.
mips r5k-cobalt: installation works, no problems.
mips r5k-ip32: I get random segfaults and bus errors and cannot
complete the installation. Looks like a problem with my hardware, but
I'd be glad if someone could do an installation on a SGI O2 to make
sure it's not the installer/kernel. Also, I believe I found a genuine
bug in the installer: it seems when fdisk is started, you cannot enter
any commands. All input is simply ignored and fdisk hangs. I only
see "Command (m for help):" but cannot type anything. Can someone
else confirm this? This would be an RC bug.
mips r4k-ip22: when I tried in November the installer wouldn't boot;
I filed #452798 and Julien Blache tried to work around it in an NMU
but now the kernel fails to boot (it runs out of memory, even though
I have plenty).
- mips/mipsel in general: the library reduction issue (#445507) still
hasn't been investigated, but I've worked around this in d-i by
- It seems that d-i no longer accepts the hostname given by DHCP but
simply uses "debian". Has anyone noticed this?
- On installation that use network-console, choose mirror is run
before choose language. Is that normal?
