Bug#851486: debian-installer: USB keyboard doesn't work on Banana Pi
For some reason the necessary modules for USB HID or storage to
work are not detected or installed on Banana Pi. They are present
in the initrd though.
I also tried the "Installing from a USB stick" method (
), but it also failed due to not being able to mount the USB
stick after the installer started. It also did not recognize an
USB keyboard, but I had a serial console at that point.
Installing stretch to a Banana Pi with the SD-card image
(netboot) and a serial console works, but using a USB keyboard
and HDMI output would be far more convenient.
