Re: Fwd: New install media
I think the installer-CD is is missing the cdrom drivers.
Please check in the easy-build.sh script that DI_DIR points to the cd directory, and not to netboot.
and point it to the full /tmp image instead.
(this is wrong in my description/patch in https://parisc.wiki.kernel.org/images-parisc/2/2e/Debian-cd.patch.txt)
