This issue must be reopened, it has not been fixed.
Allow me to elaborate:
The orignal issue is that the squeeze install freezes in the
partitioning step (see messages #5, #10 and #15). As far as I can see,
nothing has been done to address this. So this problem still persists.
I still can not install squeeze.
During my attempts to find a work-around, I also found that the testing
installer shows the same problem (see message #20).
Mr. Figueiredo suggests in messages #25 and #30 that the issue may be
due to version mismatch between kernel and modules. But this is
probably unrelated. The error message observed by Mr. Figueiredo in his
installation attempt is not present in the logs from my installation
attempt. And the version number mismatch in the current testing
installer can certainly not explain the same error in the squeeze
Further, after the issue was closed, I have now tried the most recent
testing installer (debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso, dated 20110114
15:10). The issue is still present there. Installation freezes in the
partitioning step, with the same message - "No volume groups found".
To sum it up: The issue is still there, and the suggested explanation
and fix may have nothing to do with the issue. Please reopen.
And let me know if there is anything I can do, or any information I can
give, to help resolve this issue.
With kind regards
