Package: debian-installer

trying to install Sarge-i386 build from 20041002...

when trying to detect network hardware, all I get is the list of IDE
devices from the CD detection stage. (I should get a list of network
cards, shouldn't I?)

Also, can't find any option to install other modules, such as my sound
card (sb awe32).

On two attempts to install the base system, the system froze/hung.

Finally, compared to the Woody installer, this is SLOW! Especially the
partitioner. Slow, as in 10-seconds staring at the blue screen waiting
for the next dialog to come up. The Woody installer is snappy by

I'm trying to install on older hardware: Pentium 90, 64Mb RAM, 1.3Gb
HD. (/boot=25Mb at beginning, swap=256Mb at the end, /=all the rest in
the middle)

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any other details.

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.
