A Beta-2 netinst image was put on a USB stick with cat. A second vfat
partition held needed firmware. The installer does not hang as it did
with Beta-1 but it displayed a message that firmware was missing. This
should not have happened as the firware was already provided. Answering
"yes" gets the same screen back. Message #46 in #683849 relates the same

The single disk on the machine was partitioned as

   /dev/sda1 /dev/sda2 /dev/sda3 /dev/sda5 /dev/sda6

and the log showed mountmedia not getting beyond /dev/sda2. Executing
/bin/mountmedia gives the same outcome.

I am not by any means skilled in writing or interpreting shell scripts,
so what comes next is a tentative explanation.

If $PARTITION_TYPE" is equal to "0x5" or "0xf" then media_mounted and
checkcontents do not run. So does this not mean

	for dev in $(devlist); do
                if try_mount $dev; then
                        exit 0 # success

would cause the script to exit before all the partitions had been

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.
