d-i fails to create a file system (squeeze kfreebsd amd64)
I'm trying to install the latest debian on my DELL Latitude E4300.
The version I'm trying to use is: debian-6.0.0-kfreebsd-amd64 using the
DVD #1, but I had the same problem booting from the network (PXE).
Everything works well until I try to partition the hard drive. I get a
red screen with:
Failed to create a file system.
The ufs file system creation in partition #6 of ATA5 (ada4) failed.
The disk is detected as:
ATA5 (ad5) - 250.1 GB ST9250410ASG/004SDM1
Switching to console #4 provides me the following information:
update-dev: warning: unable to find udevadm; skipping
partmam: mkfs.ufs: Cannot retrieve operator gid, using gid 0.
partman: mkfs.ufs: /dev/ad4s6: could not find special device
The problem is the same whether I use manual or guided partitioning.
Thanks for any answers.
