Bug#578927: debian-installer: No kernel driver for powerpc mac mini ethernet (Sun GEM)

Package: debian-installer
Version: daily-image powerpc netinst ISO 2010-0419
Severity: normal

During the installer check for an ethernet interface prior to
bringing up the network, it fails to find an ethernet interface.

lspci -v reports:

0002:20:0f.0 Ethernet controller: Apple Computer Inc. UniNorth 2 GMAC (Sun GEM) (rev ff) (prog-if ff)
  !!! Unknown header type 7f

This worked just fine for earlier Debian releases; maybe it's
just missing the appropriate kernel module?


-- System Information:
Debian Release: 5.0.4
  APT prefers stable
  APT policy: (500, 'stable')
Architecture: i386 (i686)

Kernel: Linux
Locale: LANG=en_GB.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_GB.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8)
