Bug#601475: debian-installer: Graphical installer silently fails network dev config
Version: Beta 1
Using the Squeeze Beta 1 installer in graphical mode on a Compaq DL380 G2, udhcpc fails. There's no clue what the fail is.
What's needed is the firmware-linux-nonfree package so Intel 82559 D101M microcode (e100/d101m_ucode.bin) is available.
A recent install on a Thinkpad T400 hinted that a firmware package was needed for the wireless network device.
