Re: Still can't install wheezy on a 2011 iMacS

Hi again,

I was directed to the wiki:


Apparently this section has been updated:

Update (2011/08/12) : aluminium iMac Intel 12,1 / Wheezy , see the
"video" section.

However this didn't work for me. Even applying the radeon.modeset=0 line in the boot parameters just leads to a blank screen with a flashing cursor at the top. Booting into rescue mode gives me a root shell, and I applied the suggested updates to /etc/apt/sources.list, but aptitude update failed with messages saying the server locations couldn't be resolved. I tried a ping to the actual IP address, but got the message "Network unreachable".

So I'm still stuck. I think this could possibly be bug # 627705, lack of kernel support for the Broadcom ethernet card. But I'm not sure. My installer was a weekly build from a few weeks ago -- should I try a later build? I don't want to take the time if I'm just going to end up in the same place.

Cheers,  Mike.
