Re: Fwd: New install media

Hi Mike,

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.

Check this:
export DI_DIR="/..../DEBIAN_INSTALLER/debian-installer/installer/build/tmp/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)
