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

Initial boot worked:    [O]
Configure network HW:   [O]
Config network:         [O]
Detect CD:              [O]
Load installer modules: [O]

Reboot:                 [E]
Install packages after base system	[E]


First boot hanged the machine at hotplug time. Some USB module
apparently got automatically blacklisted, second boot worked, but
rivafb module fucked up the console. After manual blacklisting, could
reach baseconfig.

 - I got only server tasks (WWW server, print server, ...) and
   localisation tasks, but no desktop task (X Window system, desktop
   environment, TeX/LaTeX environment, scientific application, C
   development, python development, ...)

 - I didn't get asked which locales should be generated and
   /etc/locale.gen didn't contain sensible defaults (was
   empty). Debconf was configured with "medium"
   priority. "dpkg-reconfigure locales" took care of it, but we
   shouldn't assume installers know to do that.

 - Configured X with nv driver, LCD works, but not external
   monitor. Usually, X tells me in the log what the native resolution
   of the LCD is (DDC?), but not in this case.

(Sorry for being somewhat vague, but I don't have the machine at hand
 now. I'll get a grip on it Friday.)

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.
