Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it
Initial boot worked: [O]

Detect hard drives: [O]
Partition hard drives: [O]
Create file systems: [O]
Mount partitions: [O]
Install base system: [O]
Install boot loader: [O]
I put "error" for configure network HW, since the installer
did not detect the prism54 based wireless card. I guess this
is because of the missing firmware binary which is
required for operation. I put the binary in place from an usb disk
manually after completing the install, but it would be nice
if it was possible for the user to provide this binary at
install time (via usb keydrive, floppy disk, whatever) to
be able to do a netinst.
In the partition editor, the character graphics symbols
are not explained anywhere; it took me a while to guess that the
"lightning symbol" meant "bootable". There should be an
explanation of the symbols.
During install, I also got these error messages in a prompt:
Aug 14 23:54:57 hw-detect: Missing modules 'i810-tco (Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) LPC Bridge), 8139too (Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.

Aug 14 23:57:56 hw-detect: Missing modules 'i810-tco (Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) LPC Bridge), ide-scsi (Linux IDE-SCSI emulation layer), ide-mod (Linux IDE driver), ide-probe-mod (Linux IDE probe driver), ide-detect (Linux IDE detection), ide-floppy (Linux IDE floppy)
Although they didn't seem to prevent anything from working.
After rebooting from harddisk, startup sequence appeared to hang
at "Starting MTA" (exim4). Probably because the network was unreachable?
(I configured the ethernet card during setup but it is unplugged).
Hitting Ctrl-C caused bootup to continue. It's kind of strange that
the MTA is started at all, considering it has not yet been configured
(the GUI for configuring the MTA was presented at a later stage).
At the prompt to configure keyboard layout, I had to choose between
"regular" and "USB" (can't remember the exact prompt). The USB listing
was missing a lot of layouts (such as "Norwegian"), so I just picked
"regular keyboard" and "Norwegian". I have an USB keyboard attached
to the laptop, which of course also has a built-in keyboard.
But I thought both keyboards HAD to use the same keymap?
It would be nice if libncurses5-dev is available on the first CD,
so that "make menuconfig" for compiling kernels is possible.
After getting the basic system running, I then proceeded to upgrade

We are closing this installation report for one of the following
- it was reported with a pre-lenny version of Debian
- indications in the installation report give the feeling that
the reported problem waslying in another software, unrelated to
D-I, which we can't easily identify.
- indications in the installation report suggest that it may have been
fixed in a more recent version of a D-I component
- it was successful and we forgot closing it..:-)
- it has no information we consider useful
The D-I team is currently in the process of cleaning out the old spool
of installation reports that haven't bene processed yet.
In case you think that the problem you reported has chances to be
still present, please reiterate your installation test with
a more recent image of D-I, if you're in position of doing this.
You'll find daily builds at
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer. We recommend you choose
the netboot image, in the "daily builds section", then choose to
install "squeeze" when prompted.
If some problems are found, please report them with a new bug sent
Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
