Re: problems with 'yenta_socket' installing debian

I'm installing debian 3.1 (sarge) on a Toshiba Satellite300CDS from the CDs, but when the installer start the research for cd-rom drivers it stops at 2% while loading the 'yenta_socket' module for 'Toshiba America Info Systems ToPIC97'.

Is there something wrong with my computer or there's something I can do to solve this problem?

I used to have problems with the yenta_socket as a module. I'm not talking about the intallation procedure, but ordinary laptop usage... the only solution I found was to compile the yenta_socket stuff directly in the kernel not as a module. Now you're problem is during the installation... you may try to disable PCMCIA since yenta_socket is related to that...

I hope this helps
