Package: installation-reports

This is mainly to report that I had some trouble installing the software
on the USB.  Generally available versions of boot.img.gz screwed up the
USB drive, after doing:
zcat /data/Downloads/Debian/boot.img.gz > /dev/sda
the drive became unreadable.  However, the daily image listed below
worked OK.

The other problem I had was knowing which iso image to install.
http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/en.i386/ch04s03.html just says "copy
a Debian netinst or businesscard ISO image to it."  which I did not find
particularly helpful.  Also I understand that it is important to get the
iso image from the same source as the boot.img.gz file.

Boot method: USB

On another Linux computer I:
Image version:

Inserted a usb flash memory and in a user terminal did
zcat /data/Downloads/Debian/boot.img.gz > /dev/sda

Then in a root terminal did:
mount /dev/sda /mnt
cp /data/Downloads/Debian/debian-testing-i386-netinst.iso /mnt
umount /mnt

(see http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/en.i386/ch04s03.html)

Date: 3/11/08

Machine: MSI Wind U90

The rest of the installation was fairly straightforward though I have
not got around to getting the wireless to work yet.

Thanks for your report.
Closing as it's an installation report.
Feel free to test and report any issues against the current debian
installer release (Squeeze Beta2) which supports more hardware and also
allows to load external firmware if needed/wanted.

Melhores cumprimentos/Best regards,

Miguel Figueiredo
