Installer does not find kernel module for usb DSL modem speedtouch,
grep -rl speedt /var/log/debian-installer/* returns nothing.
Standard debian kernel:
Linux version 2.4.25-1-k7 (herbert@gondolin) (gcc version 3.3.2 (Debian)) #1
Tue Feb 24 14:24:28 EST 2004 (with discover and hotplug)
does autoload module speedtch: usb.c: registered new driver speedtch
Packages speedtouch and libatm1 are not present on the install image.
These packages (and ppp) must be available to setup the speedtouch modem
before you can connect to the net to complete netinst.
My cdwriter and dvd-player were detected as /dev/hdd and /dev/hdc and both
did not work.
After adding the next line to grub.conf
kernel /vmlinuz ro root=/dev/hda5 hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi
and adding the following 2 lines to /etc/modutils/actions
options ide-cd ignore='hdc hdd'
pre-install sg modprobe ide-scsi
and running update-modules both work fine.

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.
