Package: installation-reports

Debian-installer-version: netinst rc1 ISO, downloaded from debian.org
on Sept. 3, 2004
uname -a: n/a
Date: Sept. 3, 2004
Method: Booted from CD-ROM with netinst rc1 ISO.  Didn't get far
enough to use network install.

Machine: Dell Inspiron 2650c
Processor: Intel Celeron 1.6GHz
Memory: 256MB
Root Device: IDE
Root Size/partition table: not recorded
Output of lspci and lspci -n:

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]

Mount partitions:       [O]
Install base system:    [O]
Install boot loader:    [O]
Reboot:                 [O]


The initial install was simple and problem free.  I was particularly
pleased that the installer suggested a partitioning scheme and allowed
me to approve it and modify it before commiting the changes.

I was hit by a bug after rebooting that left the console unusable.  I
assume this was the bug listed in the rc1 errata under the heading
"Hotplug bugs lead to reboot loops, no display."  I believe my
framebuffer was messed up.

I attempted to reboot into emergency mode (as selected from the GRUB
menu) but the framebuffer was still messed up so I couldn't make the
changes recommended in the errata listing.  I started the install over
and had the same problem.  In normal or emergency mode, the
framebuffer would go crazy partway through the boot process so the
console was unusable.

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.
