After booting, the USB keyboard is not working. I think that the "Sun
keyboard" variant is auto-selected. Which is wrong.
It should be "USB keyboard".

I have a working sarge d-i image, dated 20040511, where at least I am able
to go back to the main d-i menu and select keyboard layout as desired.
Soon after that date it stopped working completely.

I already described this abnormal behavior in bug #248855.
I submitted more info five days ago (as Joey Hess kindly asked me),
but it seems that nobody cares.

<bitter mode="on">
Hel-looo there! d-i is broken!
For almost half of a year...
It's so sad.

I hope this can be resolved in reasonable time. I am willing to help.
We have here 10 (ten) such SunBlade 150 machines. I can spare some
more time now to test this or that.

Best regards,
Wiktor Wandachowicz

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.
