. The debian-installer cdimage I downloaded didn't have the modules for
I2O hardware, so I had to built a custom boot disc using
linux-kernel-di-i386-2.6-0.66 and debian-installer-20040801 to add the
I2O modules to a mini.iso cdimage.
. debian-installer didn't load the modules for the RAID controller, so I
had to manually load them:
Once the modules where loaded the installer recognized the discs and
offered me the option to partition them. Devices /dev/i2o/hda/disc,
/dev/i2o/hda/part1, /dev/i2o/hda/part2... got created automatically.
. when installing the base system kernel-image-2.6.8-1-686 installation
failed with the message:
Setting up kernel-image-2.6.8-1-686 (2.6.8-3) ...
/usr/sbin/mkinitrd: /dev/i2o/hda/part1: Unknown root device
Please refer to the manual page.
Failed to create initrd image.
and base system installation failed. I fixed this by making my own
kernel-image-2.6.8-1-686_2.6.8-3 that didn't use an initrd and
installing it before debian-installer got to installing the kernel.
. when I tried to install the grub boot loader it failed since it did
not recognise /dev/i2o/hda/disc as a BIOS boot drive. Then I tried to
install the LILO boot loader but that step just returned without doing
. after installing grub manually I booted and completed the debian
installation. But when I rebooted to test everything I couldn't boot
since the device names where changed from /dev/i2o/hda/part1 to

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.
