Subject: Bug present in Sid D-i, but not in Squeeze d-i [Re:

At Norberto's suggestion I did a side-by side comparison of the
daily buisnesscard installer from the Sid d-i and the Squeeze d-i at
This build finished at Mon Feb 15 04:15:05 UTC 2010. (for Sid d-i)
This build finished at Mon Feb 15 04:17:52 UTC 2010. (for Squeeze)
The Sid d-i failed with seg-faults. The Squeeze d-i did *not*.
In fact, the squeeze d-i installer completed a normal installation and
booted just fine.
So... What do we do now?
Rick on what machine did you test on. I tested on my playstation 3
about 3 or 4 days ago and the installation failed at configuring
network with installation step failed i tested the daily netboot
I used an Apple PowerMac deskside tower G4 machine.
Can you supply the relevant part of the syslog from a failed attempt
on the PS3? More details might help us to figure out what's failing
there. I'm guessing the PS3 has a network interface that needs some
firmware that isn't being supplied. The installer has provision for
such cases (you can put the firmware on a USB stick and load it from
there), but I've never used them. Maybe somebody else on the list
knows more details?
This is not related to bug#562575, so I've taken it off the CC list.
