Bug#572897: PS3 installation with d-i daily image as of March 07, 2010

Package: installation-reports

Boot method: petitboot
Image version: http://d-i.debian.org/daily-images/powerpc/daily/powerpc64/netboot/{vmlinux,initrd.gz}
Date: Sun, 07 Mar 2010 14:57:08 +0100

Machine: Sony Playstation 3
Partitions: 10Gb partition for OtherOS

The installer seems to boot fine, and presents its initial menu.
However, the attached USB keyboard isn't functional at that point,
making further installation impossible.

I understand that petitboot, the bootloader i used, is just a regular
linux system.  The keyboard works flawlessly with petitboot, so I'm
assuming debian-installer is at fault here.

BOFH excuse #253:
We've run out of licenses
