Package: installation-reports

Debian-installer-version: ~jbaily daily build Aug 26 directory, aug25 23:18
uname -a: n/a

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

Initial boot worked:    [O]

Config network:         [O]
Detect CD:              [ ]
Load installer modules: [E]

1) There are formatting problems on the language selection menus (vga
console, squares for international characters, some of which cause
errors drawing the menu scrollbar and side)

2) The installation system detects onboard tulip and inserts the modules,
but this wedges the ethernet card.  With no way to remove the module,
the only way to avoid this problem is to escape out of the menu
sequence before network hardware detection and insert it by hand with
the "options=3" parameter to hard-set it to 10BaseT (this card is
10BaseT only running on a 10/100 switchport.)

3) The kernel package being used for this daily build is out of
sequence with the repository (-1 vs -3), which asks to abort the
install when loading installer modules.  This situation makes it very
hard to fully test the daily builds.  Leaving older kernel revisions
in the pool/list for a while might be the easiest overall solution.

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.
