Package: installation-reports

Debian-installer-version: 28/10/2005
uname -a: #1 Wed sept 28 02:05:15 2005 x86_64
Date: 11:00m BST 28/10/2005
Method: Network install from CDROM

the 190GB parts are combined as raid1 with ext3 mounted as /
the 2 10GB parts are configured as ext3 and mounted as /local &
The 2 3.9GB parts are used as swap.

Output of lspci and lspci -n:

Don't have access to lspci in busybox

Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot worked:    [O]
Configure network HW:   [O]

Detect CD:              [O]
Load installer modules: [O]

When tying to install the base_files package it says (in virt con 3)
"chroot: cannot execute mount: No such file or directory".

If I do a df, it shows /dev/md/0 mounted as /target and
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 mounted as /cdrom.

I also had this exact same problem which an image I downloaded on

Hope this helps.

These issues have now been fixed. Thank you very much for your help in
