Bug#764437: console-setup hangs during install in jessie/wheezy on eeepc 1005ha

Control: severity -1 important

marv <marvin@ctech.ca> (2014-10-08):
> Package: console-setup
> Version: 1.113
> Severity: critical
> Tags: d-i
> Justification: breaks the whole system
> Dear Maintainer,
> Installing Debian Wheezy or Jessie with a net install iso on my EEEPC 1005HA just won't work. It will hang or reboot
> on the "installing base system" around 99% when console-setup runs.  I have tried running the setup with boot params "acpi=off,
> nomodeset, blacklisting the i915 module, ..." nothing gets the job done.  Only way i've found to get around it is to rename or
> delete /target/usr/bin/ckbcomp during the install (and you have to be quick to catch it).
> After doing so and booting the now successful install, renaming /usr/bin/ckbcomp back, the system will not boot any more.
> I've tried installing with different keymaps/locales nothing seems to help...


thanks for the bug report. Since this seems to be very (hardware)
specific, I'm adjusting the severity for the time being. Hopefully
somebody will be able to give some hints on how to debug this further.
