Package: installation-reports
Version: beta 3

I sent this previously with the wrong package ("installer") above.

When I use the installer from the beta 3 iso image (downloaded from the
main site on 1 April 2004) to try and install, it fails to configure
either of my network adapters.  I get the same problem if I use the
jigdo ISO image dated 3 April 2004 of Sarge.  I presume they use the
same installer.  The adapters are Realtek 8139 and VIA VT6103 based.
They are detected and configured correctly by woody 3.0r1 installer.
The modules mii.o, crc32.o, 8139too.o and via-rhine.o are present in the
lib/modules/2.4.25-1-386/kernel/drivers/net/ directory.

If I use the expert mode to install I am advised that there may be a
problem and that I may have to add additional modules on floppy.

When I go into second stage install, and I avoid any access of the
internet in response to the prompts to avoid any problems.  However, the
system still seems to attempt to access the LAN/Ethernet and I get the
following error repeated many times, when I try and Select Packages to

NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: Transmit timed out
eth0: link up 100Mbs, full duplex, lpa 0x45E1

This repeats a number of times.  If I then unplug the ethernet
connection, I'll get "eth0 Link down" and the install hangs.  If I leave
it, I get back to the prompt screen ("next action") but the NETDEV error
comes through the text and the install hangs.

I hope this helps.

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.
