First of all, I had a working debian sarge/sid system on this machine
so I thought I'd use an image/kernel/ramdisk on the harddrive. I
needed a few tries to get GRUB to boot into the install kernel. The
install started OK but I wanted to keep the partitions from the old
install. When I put in "format /boot and /", the formatting of /
failed. I see now why this happened, the CD iso was on / (it was on
/home too, but I guess the one on / was found first). Needless to say,
I got a completely unresponsive system from this. I used a different
machine to burn a CD and installed from that.
I was worried when the partitioning program wanted to write into the
partition table although I had made no changes. I think it would be
good to skip writing if there are no changes. /home survived, though.
The FAT32 partition contains a win2k system, it would be good if
that was detected.
The "Red background" problem occured for me. Strange thing is that the
first CD i made was cut short (the burner is on a Win machine, don't
ask), and while the install didn't finish, it started OK and went
through until module loading for ethernet. That disk gave a _blue_
background. Go figure.
The e100 ethernet was autodetected, but it seems my wireless pcmcia
card is not. It's a 3com 3crwe62092b which needs the atmel-firmware
package. When I hand-installed that (and ifplugd and waproamd) it
is detected and shows up in ifconfig alright. I have yet to actually
try it, but there _should_ be no problem.

traditions of sorcery and black art.

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.
