Package: live-initramfs
Severity: important


I am not exactly sure about the cause of this problem but it seems it is
because I tried http network boot and did not have any NIC supported by

The symptom:

During the network boot the system panics. The last message is Runnnig

I burned the image on a CD and found the box has an Attansic L2 NIC
which requires a special separate kernel module. So my suspition is that
the live script fails and panics (exits) without leaving any useful
debug message.

This hould never happen. Every time the script exits it should print the
reason of the failure. Otherwise the user is left with kernel panic of
unknown cause.
