Checked now, module loads but the installer is still reporting no
disk - but when breaking into the shell from the installer
I noticed that all partitions are detected. So retrying disk detection at
that point worked.
Maybe a timing issue, probably due to some md arrays on my disks.
Please tell if and what information would be helpfull, at the moment
for me it's only a minor issue with the "retrying of disk detection"
workaround available. At least a release note entry would be fine.
Thanks for your work on sparc,
