Package: installation-reports

Debian-installer-version: sarge netinst official daily build 18th April
Date: 19th April, ~12:00pm GMT
Method: Booted from netinst CD, chose default boot options.

Processor: Athlon XP 1800
Memory: 512MB
Root Device: IDE HDD

Base System Installation Checklist:

Initial boot worked:    [O]
Configure network HW:   [E]
Config network:         [E]
Detect CD:              [O]

[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it


1. The partitioner did not let me choose a mount point for my existing /home partition (reiserfs, hda9). I could choose the 'use existing data on this partition' option, but contrary to the 15th April netinst build, no mount point option then appeared.

2. I chose to reformat hda8 as reiserfs and mount it as /. I also chose to delete hda7, which was a small ext2 partition. The face icons on the main installer screen showed this correctly. But when I finished the main partitioner screen and was asked to confirm a summary of the changes, it claimed I was going to format hda7 with reiserfs. I cancelled the changes, and then only chose to format hda8, doing nothing to hda7. The summary was correct that time.

3. There didn't seem to be any problems with the network during the initial installation boot, but during the first 'real' bootup, network configuration failed, saying there was no such device eth0. However, eth0 works fine under Knoppix, and ethernet also works under XP. My card is a Realtek 8139too.

(I'm not sure if this is related to the reason I'm reinstalling Debian, which is that after several days of no rebooting a months-old Sarge netinst partition, the next bootup claimed eth0 did not exist, even though eth0 had been working perfectly.)

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.
