Did you check current image? We got many issues fixed and would be nice to do a new try. By the way, are you scanning for the ISO or booting it directly?

That was with the "current" image as of when I wrote it -- yesterday, July 27th at 08:41 UTC.

I burned the image (Wheezy d-i, daily build, PowerPC Businesscard, from cdimage.debian.org) and booted it on one of my test G4 Macs. I reported what I saw: "No kernel modules were found". I didn't personally scan the CD to see if there were any kernel modules hiding on it in out-of-the-way closets. I let the installer do that for me. I figured it knew where to look better than I would.

I want to help (as a tester, not a developer) so if there's a different image I should try, please let me know.


PS: The corresponding sid d-i install CD is even worse. It has problems with choosing a language and can't get far enough to check for kernel modules.

Is it safe to assume that this problem ("no kernel modules"), which I encountered with the wheezy_d-i PowerPC businesscard installer image, is not worth worrying about, as long as if doesn't still exist in the Sid_d-i? My assumption is that the Sid_d-i will become the wheezy_d-i in the normal due course of development, and there is plenty of time for that to happen before first Wheezy release sometime in 2013 -- so I should be concentrating my efforts on testing Sid_d-i?

Or should I be pressing on this problem as well?
