Bug Description

Binary package hint: debian-installer


Booting the netboot image for imx51, I was able to start the installer either on tty1 or on the serial console, however it's unusable because:
- the ethernet driver for imx51 is broken and the USB ethernet drivers aren't in the image (I think the module is "asix")
- the USB keyboard driver (and/or other drivers which it needs) aren't in the image

The full list of modules I see is:

I think we need at least enough to type in the installer to setup network properly and network drivers; the rest can be downloaded.

Amit, most issues were debian-installer configuration issues; the only module I spotted as missing for the netboot image to be useful is net/usb/asix.ko.

Could you please add "asix ?" in debian.fsl-imx51/d-i/modules/nic-usb-modules?

This bug was fixed in the package debian-installer - 20081029ubuntu61

debian-installer (20081029ubuntu61) karmic; urgency=low

  [ Loïc Minier ]
  * armel/dove/netboot.cfg: Use the same MANIFEST-KERNEL as all other kernels,
    i.e. don't mention uImage specially.
  * armel/dove/netboot.cfg: Re-add generation of an uImage since the kernel
    packages/udebs ship zImages again.
  * armel/dove/netboot.cfg: Use $(TEMP_INITRD) $(TEMP_KERNEL) in TARGET
    instead of $(KERNEL) and $(INITRD) as these are the ones we actually take
    as input.
  * build/config/armel/{dove,imx51}.cfg: s/kernel API/kernel ABI/.
  * Add a dove-z0 flavour with a netboot image copied from the dove one, but
    using dove-z0 as output dir.
  * Drop useless "mkdir -p $(TEMP)/dove" in dove's and dove-z0's netboot.cfg.
  * Misc fixes to armel+imx51 pkg-lists:
    - Add netboot/armel/imx51.cfg to include
      nic-modules{,-shared,-usb}-${kernel:Version} and nic-firmware (optional)
      since we currently lack support for builtin ethernet on Babbage 2.x
      boards; also include input-modules-${kernel:Version} for USB keyboard;
      LP: #431283.
    - Add cdrom/arm dir and cdrom/armel symlink and add cdrom/armel/imx51.cfg
      to pull the same modules as for netboot plus
      fat-modules-${kernel:Version} to allow mounting a VFAT on an USB key or
      a SD/MMC card; LP: #364604.
  * Set KERNELNAME to vmlinuz and VERSIONED_SYSTEM_MAP to the empty string in
    imx51.cfg since the kernel and filenames in the udeb aren't
    suffixed with the version number anymore.
  * Bump imx51 ABI version to 2.6.31-101.

  [ Oliver Grawert ]
  * build/config/armel/imx51/netboot.cfg create babbage-TO2-sd.img similar to
    the nslu2 netinstall image to easily start a netinstall from SD on
    babbage 2.x boards
  * add build dependency on redboot-tools to create the above image from
    initrd.gz and vmlinuz files in the netboot dir

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Move to 2.6.31-11 kernels.
