Did you check current image? We got many issues fixed and would be
nice to do a new try. By the way, are you scanning for the ISO or
booting it directly?
That was with the "current" image as of when I wrote it --
yesterday, July 27th at 08:41 UTC.
I burned the image (Wheezy d-i, daily build, PowerPC Businesscard,
from cdimage.debian.org) and booted it on one of my test G4 Macs. I
reported what I saw: "No kernel modules were found". I didn't
personally scan the CD to see if there were any kernel modules
hiding on it in out-of-the-way closets. I let the installer do that
for me. I figured it knew where to look better than I would.
I want to help (as a tester, not a developer) so if there's a
different image I should try, please let me know.
PS: The corresponding sid d-i install CD is even worse. It has
problems with choosing a language and can't get far enough to check
for kernel modules.
Is it safe to assume that this problem ("no kernel modules"), which I
encountered with the wheezy_d-i PowerPC businesscard installer image,
is not worth worrying about, as long as if doesn't still exist in the
Sid_d-i? My assumption is that the Sid_d-i will become the wheezy_d-i
in the normal due course of development, and there is plenty of time
for that to happen before first Wheezy release sometime in 2013 -- so
I should be concentrating my efforts on testing Sid_d-i?
Or should I be pressing on this problem as well?
