Package: debian-installer
Version: 20101020
Severity: normal
Tags: squeeze


I installed the Beta1 squeeze netinst ISO on an old Toshiba Portege 3020CT
notebook.  The installer ran fine to completion, then failed to find the
root filesystem on first boot.

The Installer had told grub to pass "all_generic_ide" to the kernel, but
the resulting libata driver fails to find the IDE controller on this

Forcing the loading of ide_generic gets the controller detected (albeit
with very low throughput).

There may be some Toshiba IDE controller support from 2.6.33 in libata.

Dunno if this is really an installer or a kernel bug....

thank you for submitting bug reports concering debian-installer, much 

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 have been from a development phase where things were not stable and/or
- they are very old and/or
- they are wishlist but rather special + exotic and not have been acted on for 
years. (See http://blog.liw.fi/posts/wishlist-bugs/ why it's often useful to 
close wishlist bugs.)

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 - and that's often better, as the bug 
log will be clearer and shorter and not contain cruft.
