Package: debian-installer
Version: N/A; reported 2004-03-09
Severity: wishlist

I tried to install a diskless client and mount an nfs-root-partition.
(No harddrives inside the diskless client, rootfs should be on my
server). First Problem: nfs-modules aren't loaded or "reachable" in
Even after copying nfs.o, lockd.o and sunrpc.o (from a remote server,
after extracting them out of the kernel-image-deb), running 
"depmod -a", and "modprobe nfs", I still wasn't able to mount my 
nfs-server properly.

mount -t nfs <ip>:<dir> <dir>

didn't issue a rpc.mountd-request for the directory on the nfs-server. So
I copied another "mount"-binary from a stable debian-box. With the help
of strace, I discovered, that the second mount issues the correct
socket-functions, the busybox-"mount" seems to lack this

Unfortunately debian-installer insists to partition a drive, just
mounting my desired root-filesystem on /target, didn't help and now I'm
stuck :) - Choosing "Install the base system" just keeps on returning to
"Partition disks".

There are two bugs merged here but neither is actually supportable in DI.

The use case for each is just too small - there are many other ways of
creating an NFS depending on a range of other factors outside DI.
