Package: installation-reports
Severity: normal


I ran a few installs using Wheezy Alpha on my machines (SunBlade 2000 
and Sun T1000 server) over the last couple of days and it went mostly 
smoothly, see details below.

1. Machine: SunBlade 2000
   Medium: netboot
   Console: serial
   Partitioning: guided, separate /home
   Result: ok

2. Machine: SunBlade 2000
   Medium: netinst CD
   Console: serial
   Partitioning: guided, with LVM, separate /home
   Result: ok

3. Machine: SunBlade 2000
   Medium: netinst CD
   Console: keyboard/screen
   Partitioning: guided, with LVM, separate partitions for /home, 
   /var, /tmp, etc
   Result: ok 

4. Machine: Sun T1000 server
   Medium: netboot (no other booting methods available)
   Console: via ethernet management port
   Partitioning: guided, with encrypted LVM, separate /home
   Result: ok
   Notes: one minor quirk is that during network hardware detection 
   installer claims that required firmware is missing, and asks 
   whether user wants to load tigon/tg3_tso.bin from removable medium. 
   This server does not have any USB ports, so it would be rather 
   tricky to deliver the firmware. Luckily, I found that if I just 
   skip loading the firmware, the network works fine and install 
   completes successfully.

Best regards,

thank you for submitting installation reports, much appreciated.

I read through all the bugs mentioned here (and I'm sure they were read by 
several people at the time they were submitted) and am closing them now as/if
- they (finally) indicated success and/or
- I know from first hand experience that the functionality is working in 
Wheezy and/or
- they only contained very little information and/or
- they contained user errors and/or
- they were caused by broken hardware and/or
- they have been from a development phase where things were not stable and/or
- they are quite old (and thus likely fixed today) and/or
- moreinfo was asked and not given.

If I've closed a bug incorrectly please do reply (it's easy to reopen and I'll 
do if requested) or just file a new one - thats often better, as the bug log 
will be clearer and shorter and not contain cruft.
