Package: installation-reports

Just a note: I tried installing rc1 using the kernel 2.6 hard disk
image. In the manual it says that the lilo configuration should be

      append="devfs=mount,dall ramdisk_size=17000

But to make it work I had to change it to

      append="devfs=mount,dall ramdisk=17000

ie "/dev/ram"->"/dev/ram0" and "ramdisk_size"->"ramdisk". Both changes needed.

Also, it would be nice if there were a hard disk image with network
drivers. In any case the manual should state that you need the iso on
the drive and can't download from the network using this method. This
should be detailed in the
http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/en.i386/ch04s06.html section
(which for some reason also contains text for macs).

Install aborted because I did not have a hard disk partition for the iso image.

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.
