My mail server seems to have some problems.
So, I resend this mail to you.
Please don't blame me if you got this mail twice.
1) It will be very convenient if Debian-Installer can work automatic
with an Install-Script.
2) Personally, I think that the Debian-Installer Logo in beta 3 is
cooler then beta 4.
3) When choosing language, it shows "zh : Choose this to proceed in
Traditional Chinese" when choosing Language,
But I remember that, in languagechooser/languagelist.l10n, it had been
zh_TW: Choose this to proceed in Traditional Chinese (Taiwan)
zh : Choose this to proceed in Traditional Chinese (other countries)
At least, In SVN 2004/4/10, it is "zh_TW : Choose this... (Taiwan)".
Is Debian-Installer beta 4 not up to date?
4) If the ethernet card is unsupported by the Debian-Installer,
The installation will stop when detecting network hardware,
And it's no easy way to continue the installation.
5) If I were installing with linux-2.6 in VMware,
In the first stage of the installation,
If I switched to another console,
The screen will become garbled when I switch back to the first console.
6) If we can get an ip from a DHCP server within the installation,
I think it should show some network informations that got form DHCP server.
DHCPREQUEST on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67
DHCPACK from 192.168.1.1
bound to 192.168.1.101 -- renewal in 21600 seconds.
domain-name-servers 192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.254;
7) Portman can be more smart.
For example, If a disk which it's partition table was not empty,
we may assume that the first primary partition with system id 83 will be
mounted at /, and it will be formated with ext3.
All the partitions with system id 82 are swap partitions.
It may make the installation more easy.
8) If I install with linux-2.6 in VMware,
The screen will become garbled in the second stage of the installation.
I think it is becouse that Debian-Installer try to use "termwrap" to
And "termwrap" try to load "vesafb" module but failed, thus the The
screen became garbled.
9) If I don't want to add a normal user account in the second stage of
The installation will stop, and jump back to the installation menu.
I think it is not a very good method.
for example, I may not want to add a new account when I re-run
base-config after Debian have been installed.
10) In the first and second stage of the installation,
It ask me for the hostname twice.
I think it is not necessary.
11) After the installation,
We find that the locale was seted to: (if Debian was installed in
But, User's console may not be able to show Traditional Chinese words
It may confuse users.
# apt-get update
±µÄ² http://security.debian.org stable/updates/main Packages
±µÄ² http://security.debian.org stable/updates/main Release
±µÄ² http://security.debian.org stable/updates/contrib Packages
±µÄ² http://security.debian.org stable/updates/contrib Release
You can see that they are all illegible codes.
12) If we choosed GRUB as the boot loader,
I think it will be a good idea if it shows a Debian logo when booting.
13) I think the "unifont" font used in Debian-Installer is not very
Especial for Simplified/Traditional Chinese words. (caviling...)

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.
