Package: installation-reports
Version: RC1


  First of all, thanks for the good installer, you're doing great job.
But have to report several bugs, which could be not bugs at all but my
misunderstanding of how things shoud work.

  I'm running cd installer on i386 platform (under vmware and
user-mode-linux error messages are the same). 

1st. Partman doesn't remember settings for md devices. for example I've
set up /dev/md/1 to be formated as ext2 and mounted on /. If after that
I'll configure "Logical volume managed" or "MD devices", than settings
how to format /dev/md/1 and were to mount it will be lost. This doesn't
happen for logical volumes.

2nd. Partman doesn't allow me to format MD devices for LVM. And logical
volume manager doesn't scan MD devices for PVs. Formating md and
creating volume group from console works normally.

3rd. ssh console or ssh client doesn't work. They complains that
libutil.so.1 cannot be opened. here's output:
~ # ssh
ssh: error while loading shared libraries: libutil.so.1: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory
~ # sshd
sshd: error while loading shared libraries: libutil.so.1: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory
~ # 

4rd. Installing root on raid (I know it isn't officially supported).
After installing all base packages, mdadm package is installed wich
starts mdadm in monitoring mode, which holds /target busy thus
preventing it from unmounting, which causes installer to exit with an

  Hope this report will help to iprove debian installer. Thanks in

Alexei Chetroi

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.
