- No display manager installed by default, so GUI didn't start up
  after boot automatically. Had to use startx.

- X stuck at 1024x768@60 Hz, so apparently monitor detection didn't

- arts error displayed when starting X: "device /dev/dsp can't be
   opened (No such device)" Apparently 2.4.27 doesn't support the
   Audigy2. Installing a 2.6 kernel image fixed that. The master
   volume was set to zero by default, though.

- Some of the package configuration questions asked are really arcane
  and provide little or no explanation on what the question means.
  Examples are: libpango1.0-common, kpilot, xserver-xfree86, libsensors3.

  For more information see:


  Luckily picking the defaults works fine for most packages.

- Minor nitpick/wishlist item: During the install process
  language/region/keyboard gets asked at least three times: in the
  beginning, during the configuration of X and when starting KDE. I do
  understand that making all the various applications do the right
  thing by default may be more trouble than it's worth.

I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to install the base
system and to get it to boot. Just pick language, keyboard, region,
partition to install to, pound on enter a few times and bam, you have
a working base install.

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.
