No automatic detection of virtual disks/network using KVM (virtio-modules)
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I'm doing some Lenny test installs using the daily netinst image from
. I downloaded the .iso image from 20080822, which matches its entry
on the provided MD5SUMS file.
My test installs are done using a host system based on Debian
unstable fully updated as of some minutes ago, using kernel 2.6.26-1-686
(package version 2.6.26-3) from Debian and KVM version 72+dfsg-1, also
I'm able to use virtualized network and disks only if I manually go
back to main-menu, lower the debconf priority to "low" and select
manually the virtio-modules package to be loaded.
Is there a way to automatically install the virtio-modules package so
that there's no need to go back to main-menu and do it manually ? I'm
asking because based on what Jérémi said on  I thought both network
and block drivers were automatically loaded.
I already read the Installation Manual on  and couldn't find any
pointers on how to automatically install a given .udeb prior to network
and disk detection so the modules provided by this package are usable
within d-i without having to resort to manual steps.
