Re: ia64 testers wanted for sarge cds
I tried the netinstall CD image on an HP zx2000 and didn't get very far.
Here are the two problems I saw that prevented me from going any
1. Selecting "Detect a keyboard and select layout" causes:
An error or warning message was logged while running kbd-chooser
2. "Detect CDROM" results in
Unable to load module 'ide-probe-mod' for 'Linux IDE probe
Unable to load module 'ide-detect' for 'Linux IDE detection
Unable to load module 'ide-disk' for 'Linux ATA DISK Driver
Perform manual CD configuration?
Your installation CD couldn't be mounted. That probably means that
the CD is not yet inserted. If that's the case, just insert it and
don't perform the manual configuration; the CD mount will be
re-tried. If your CD was already in the drive, there was another
problem; try the manual CD configuration.
At this point I was stuck in a loop trying to mount cdrom.
