I just tested the current daily-build (08-Feb-2010 00:09) from here:
The installer fails on network config.
If I run 'dhclient eth0' from a console I can see the request at
the dhcp server, and dhclient reports the correct address, but
networking does not function properly.
If I run 'netcfg' from a console I get:
netcfg: undefined symbol: _savegpr_19
I guess this is our problem.
I don't have enough knowledge of D-I to do much more.
