Actually the reboot worked. But the final system was not correctly
- hdparm was not installed. (If you install some non-standard
tools like pppoe, then you should install hdparm, too. I
would guess there are more users with an IDE disk than with
a PPPoE connection.)
- man and apt-get complained about $LANG set to "en" and
$LANGUAGE set to "en_GB:en_US:en", etc. I did not ask
for these "British" settings at installation time. I
selected US. How can I tell d-i to use LANG=C ?
- In partman I had selected "partition manually" and reiserfs
for the root partition. I also had set a label for the
root partition called "root". The label was set correctly.
But the generated /etc/fstab is
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sda1 / reiserfs notail 0 1
/dev/sda3 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sdd /media/usb0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
Especially note that there is no "LABEL=root" for / . I am not
sure whether labels for reiserfs partitions are supported here.
If not, then the option in partman-reiserfs asking for a label
might be obsolete. If yes, then LABEL=root is missing.
- In d-i I did not disable any of the suggested drivers. Especially
all ide-* drivers were kept enabled. The final system did not use
the expected amd74xx driver for ide, but ide-generic, i.e. dma is
off if you keep the defaults suggested by d-i.
I don't think that this is correct. If I tell d-i to kick out
_all_ suggested ide drivers, then discover loads the expected
amd74xx at boot time, and dma is working correctly.

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
Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
