During "Detecting network hardware"
With card containing a RealTek 8139A, message displayed is
Error while running 'modprobe -v 8139too'
I was unable to install 8139 drivers manually
With card containing Genica GN-788, message displayed is
Error while running 'modprobe -v tulip'
I did successfully install tulip drivers, and the network card appeared to
be working in later stages. My Genica card comes with Linux drivers. Is
there a way to install Debian Linux with these drivers?
When installing base system, gauge message reads "Validating apt". Error
message is "Debootstrap Error, Couldn't download apt"
I wish I could install Linux in smaller stages, so that when installation
of one stage is complete, I can breathe easy and go on to the next step. It
takes forever to get to the "Installing Base System" and when the
installation fails at "Validating apt" with the gauge at 8%, I hate to have
to start all over again at the beginning.
I also had trouble with the disk partitioning. I'm not sure how to
describe it, but sometimes the computer froze and I also had to start over.

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.
