i am trying to perform a (preseeded hands-off network) install with Debian
Installer on a machine has a local scsi disk and two FC adapters "seeing"
many devices (16 each).
One problem is that each time i boot the local disk (on which i want to
install Debian) gets another device name, sometimes /dev/sdq or /dev/sdag,
or even /dev/sda once.
==> is there a way to prevent that, get the kernel to "put" the local
disk in /dev/sda ? (i preseed with "d-i partman-auto/disk
string /dev/sdag" but of course it doesn't help if the device name is
Anyways, even if i get (by chance) the right partman-auto/disk value, the
install breaks at the partitioning step, and in the console i see:
"parted-server: error while loading shared libraries: libparted-1.8.so.9:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
What could be going wrong? I am using the daily netboot snapshot for
amd64, but also tried the Lenny beta 3 version, same happens.
I also tried changing
d-i mirror/suite string lenny
#d-i mirror/udeb/suite string unstable
it doesn't seem to help... I couldn't find anything relevant after a lot
of searching in google and in the debian lists.
Thanks for any tip!
