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

Initial boot worked:    [O]
Configure network HW:   [O]
Config network:         [E]
Detect CD:              [O]
Load installer modules: [O]
Detect hard drives:     [O]
Partition hard drives:  [O]
Create file systems:    [O]
Mount partitions:       [O]
Install base system:    [O]
Install boot loader:    [O]
Reboot:                 [O]


(Issue #1) Wireless config wizard doesn't allow for ad-hoc networks.

I had to drop to shell and "iwconfig eth1 mode ad-hoc" to enable 
support for my wireless network. I think the best solution would 
be to put the card into monitor mode and list all networks 
(both ad-hoc and managed) and allow the user to select one. 
Failing that (for cloaked ESSIDs), the user should be able to 
select additional parameters in "expert" mode.

(Wish #2) Single-partition installs should be streamlined.

I had to click through the defaults on several pages of the 
installer. I think the simple installation method should be
streamlined to be "one-click" or at least as few as possible.

(Wish #3) Installer should remember the paritioning settings.

Installer should have remembered my "use the entire drive" 
choice from the partitioner and not bothered me with 
"we might have failed to detect other OSs on the system". 
Occurs during: Install the GRUB boot loader on a hard disk.

(Wish #4) GMT should be selected automatically if single-OS

If Debian is the only OS on the system (based on a single-OS)
choice in partitioner, it should just select "system time is
in GMT" without prompting.

If no other OSs are detected, it should default to that.

If other OSs are detected, it should default to local time.

(Wish #5) APT spew during package installation is ugly.

The console spew from APT that we show during package 
installation looks somewhat alarming. It ought to be hidden
behind a nice ncurses frontend that shows installation progress.
Something like the following would be nice:

   Package              Version         Size
libglib2.0-0         2.4.7-1        [1502kB]
[another package
[another package


[Current package title]
[progress bar]
[package description (good for learning about what is on the system)]

(Issue #6) Place to choose a proxy during installation?

Maybe I missed it. Where do I configure my http proxy for APT?
I have a caching proxy to reduce load on the mirrors when I
install onto more than one machine. Obviously, I could configure
this manually in /etc/apt/apt.config.

(Issue #7) X Configuration 

This is really package config for X -- but is also an essential
part of installation for a desktop.

* Could autodetect video card (XFree86 -configure), but does not.
* Could autodetect "is this an LCD", but does not.
* Shouldn't ask to autodetect mouse (just try it).
* Should autodetect resolution (esp. with LCD devices)
* Resolution of my LCD is not autodetected (1280x768)

Manual fix:

* ln -s /dev/psaux /dev/mouse
* Run XFree86 -configure
* Remove all display depths except 24
* Add DefaultDepth 24
* Clobber old config with new config

(Issue #8) Services accepting connections from network by default

Desktop machines should not listen on the network, by default.
This exposes surface area to attack, in the event of a security 
problem in one of the services. If the services were bound to, they would not be vulnerable, even with unpatched 
security holes.

* The RPC services have a long history of security problems.
* They don't need to run unless NFS is enabled (and it isn't by default)
* portmap is only used for famd and the NFS-supporting services, and 
should also be bound only to
* inetd doesn't provide any useful services and should be disabled
* SSHD does not need to be on by default for a workstation.

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.
