Package: debian-installer Version: 20100211 Hello, the debian-installer netboot stops after the message: Trying to load: pxelinux.cfg/default The machine in question is an Asus P5Q-EM (Intel G45 chipset) with an Intel Core2Duo E2200 and 4G RAM. Neither the HDMI (default) nor the VGA output shows anything else than the message above. Ctrl-Alt-Del is not working. The same problem occurs on an Asus CUV4X-EA (VIA Apollo Pro133A chipset) with an Intel P3-1GHz and 768M RAM. It looks like switching to a graphical interface or something like that goes wrong: when I disable the following line in pxelinux.cfg/default default debian-installer/i386/boot-screens/vesamenu.c32 and try again, I get a Invalid or corrupt kernel image. message followed by a boot: prompt offering install mainmenu expert rescue auto mainmenu-kde etc. pp. items. Booting into "install" or "rescue" then works well and I get prompted for my language settings afterwards. I downloaded http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/dists/squeeze/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/netboot.tar.gz and extracted it to /srv/tftp. # cat /srv/tftp/version.info Debian version: 6.0 (squeeze) Installer build: 20100211 The (somewhat newer) http://people.debian.org/~joeyh/d-i/images/daily/netboot/netboot.tar.gz (Installer build: 20100217-16:54) behaves identical. The debian-installer netinst iso-image works well and seems to get the switch to graphics right. The vesamenu.c32 on both the netboot tarball and netinst iso is identical. Feel free to clone or reassign this bug to syslinux if you think it's a pxelinux issue. Thanks for your work & regards Mario -- Independence Day: Fortunately, the alien computer operating system works just fine with the laptop. This proves an important point which Apple enthusiasts have known for years. While the evil empire of Microsoft may dominate the computers of Earth people, more advanced life forms clearly prefer Macs.
