Bug#609388: Unsuccessful installation with squeeze beta2 installer and Realtek RTL8111DL

Package: installation-reports

Boot method: CD
Image version:

Date: 2011-01-08 22:00

Machine: MSI 890GXM-G65
Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1075T
Memory: 8GB DDR3-1333
Networking: Realtek RTL8111DL (integrated, wired)

Output of lspci -knn (or lspci -nn):

Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot:           [O]
Detect network card:    [E]
Configure network:      [ ]
Detect CD:              [ ]

User/password setup:    [ ]
Install tasks:          [ ]
Install boot loader:    [ ]
Overall install:        [ ]


Both of the above mentioned disks successfully boot and the installer
progresses until it presents an error requesting that "rtl8168d-1.fw" and
"rtl8168d-2.fw" be provided via removable media.  Neither files exist in
firmware-nonfree_0.27.tar.gz (squeeze / testing) and the files in
firmware-nonfree_0.28.tar.gz (sid / unstable) pacify the installer, but do
not result in a functional network card, causing the installer to throw
errors when DHPC configuration is attempted.

Both the network card and the cabling are known good.  I have been booting
live CDs for various other distros for the past week and successfully
surfing the web.
