Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it
Initial boot worked: [O]
Configure network HW: [O]
Config network: [O]
Detect CD: [ ]
Load installer modules: [O]
Detect hard drives: [O]
Partition hard drives: [E]
Create file systems: [O]
Mount partitions: [O]
Install base system: [O]
Install boot loader: [O]
My appologies if this list is long and boring, but here's what
1. Booted OK from boot.img via "boot net"
2. Installer downloaded and started hardware detection - attempted to
install qlogicisp module - incorrect, as qlogicfc is needed.
3. manually did "modprobe -v qlogicfc" - short delay, module loaded.
4. detected both disks OK, used auto-partitioning as multi-user
workstation. Only partitioned a total of 18Gb of the drive. No free
5. manually partitioned the second drive as /home, same space problem
(suspect incorrect drive geometery or LBA support)
6. Installed base system.
8. Get message "remapping the kernel", then "fast data access mmu
miss", then back to the "ok" prompt.

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.
