Subject: debian-installer: Graphical installer silently fails network dev config
Date: Tue, 26 Oct 2010 09:15:55 -0700
Package: debian-installer
Version: Beta 1
Severity: normal

Using the Squeeze Beta 1 installer in graphical mode on a Compaq DL380 G2, udhcpc fails. There's no clue what the fail is.
What's needed is the firmware-linux-nonfree package so Intel 82559 D101M microcode (e100/d101m_ucode.bin) is available.
A recent install on a Thinkpad T400 hinted that a firmware package was needed for the wireless network device.

Hi,

thank you for submitting installation reports, much appreciated.

I read through all the bugs mentioned here (and I'm sure they were read by 
several people at the time they were submitted) and am closing them now as/if
- they (finally) indicated success and/or
- I know from first hand experience that the functionality is working in 
Wheezy and/or
- they only contained very little information and/or
- they contained user errors and/or
- they have been from a development phase where things were not stable and/or
- they are (very) old, between 2.5 and >4 years (so thats 2 releases ago).

If I've closed a bug incorrectly please do reply (it's easy to reopen and I'll 
do if requested) or just file a new one - thats often better, as the bug log 
will be clearer and shorter and not contain cruft.


cheers,
        Holger
