The boot got stuck when trying to load a module for my (unused) Adaptec
AHA-2940U/UW/D / AIC-7881U Since rmmod is not on the boot floppy I could
not stop it (don't know if rmmod would have done so anyway).
Feature request: timeout loading modules
Anyway I booted in advanced mode, and disabled that module, and some
others I thought I didn't need. Turned out I did need them since parted
locked up without them. Reboot again, this time only disable the aic
So far so good - them it tried to automatically detect other OS's.
***And this is the meat of the report***
os-prober started walking though my devices - and when it got to a certain
device (representing I believe a smart card reader) it froze, kill -9
would not kill it. Any command that touched that device would hang
This is not the bug. The bug is why is it walking through random devices?
Please have it walk only though devices in /proc/partitions!
Feature request #2: when installing in advanced mode, don't automatically
find other OS's - ask the user if he wants it first.
I finally had success by editing os-prober and adding exit as the first
Next error: I initially tried using kernel 2.6, but it hung when loading
initrd, don't remember the exact message. I reinstalled using 2.4 which

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.
