Package: installation-reports
Version: rc1
Severity: important

Got the business card ISO ( sarge-i386-businesscard.iso) from

The md5 sum, just in case there is some prob in the image,  is

The image was burnt on to an ordinary 640/700 MB CD-RW media. 

I tried  two install; one  on my own  system, a PIII800Mz,  128MB ram,
20gb seagate hdd and a IDE  CDRW of little known make usually detected
as IDE1610 (onsecondary slave).

This attempt  aborted, complaining of belng unable to mount the cd.

In normal operation, `dmesg |grep ide' gives :-

BIOS-provided physical RAM map:

Please let me know what further  info (and how to find it) is required
to fix it.

The second  install was at a  friend's place, on a  system with nvidia
graphics  card, plenty  of ram  and a  powerful processor,  (he  is an
employee of the dealer for AMD).  Sorry, I have no more details of the
hw, (maybe, I can  find out when I go there again  in another 12 hours
to fix it) except what I give below.

First thing is that the graphic screen does not show on this monitor.

The problem  encountered here was that  this chap is  using a Motorola
Surfboard  5100  (?) USB  cable  modem  (from asianetindia.net).  THis
machine has no NIC  card. There is no way I can  figure out how to get
network over the USB port. (USB devices are well detected here).

I  suspect out that  even if  I get  the installer  to detect  the USB
network, the install scripts might  not be configurable to use the USB

And now,  for serious newbie  issue - woody  installer used to  show a
default  IP address  when NIC  cards  were installed  on the  relevant
screen.  This installer does not do so.

Also,  I could  not figure  out how  to add  a local  repository  on a
filesystem using this image. dunno if this is a bug or feature.

Happy Hacking!!!

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
against installation-reports.

Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
