Package: debian-installer
Version: really bad /cdrom support ! please a fix asap !!
Severity: important

Dear Sir,

Please try to install linux debian testing from a pendrive. It is today not possible !!

It says : 
No common cd'rom drive was detected altought /cdrom is moutned from /dev/sdb1

your automatic seek for pendrive or cdrom is completely stupid. It unmounts what users do , such as mounted a right thing to /cdrom

Check unmounts it and do mess . What the hell is it ? 

Please leave freedom to install linux to everyone even people that have no cdrom such as mini pc . 

It would be so great.

The *.ISO auto mounting is not working well either when you have one or 2 iso in it :)

Man there is almost all to get a nice mount and install but you screw your own debian-installer :( that's so sad.

On the other hand 2tb are badly supported, just only by the businesscard - very well, but still grub is not installable , nor LILO.

There is still lot of progresses to do. Is debian alarmed -or not yet, by the poor installation performances of debian-installer? Is tehre any concern by hte linux community or it will always remains very basic.

Look; even debian live has no i386 pendrive img. Is it a joke? - look slackware, one can get the usbimg.img, dd to pendrive and install it freely and well. 

All the best, linux is great, and deserve to be known by all, and too students.

Best regards
