Package: debian-installer
version: unknown (sid-amd64-netinst.iso dated 06-Aug-2004)

When choosing to use XFS for the root partition (including /boot), grub
will segfault and the installer will indicate a fatal error, lilo will
also refuse to install a bootsector on the partition table or the root
partition itself.

Unfortunately I don't have the detailed error log from the installation,
however I was advised on #debian-boot to provide the bug report
nonetheless.  No special disk hardware was used, and the install was to
/dev/hda on an nforce3 250 ide controller.  This bug should be easily

Changing the root partition type to ext2/3 allowed grub to run

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.
