Bug Description


debian-installer failed to build because the nic-modules udeb was empty:

vexpress' networking is probably enabled, but at the very least USB NICs should be enabled as modules in the kernel config.

I'll relax the debian-installer module dep to allow this udeb to be missing, but it seems we should nevertheless enable USB NICs in the config.

debian-installer (20101020ubuntu43) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Make nic-modules udeb optional on armel; currently not present on
    armel+vexpress (builtin ethernet is built into the kernel); some USB NICs
    should still be possible as modules, but that's optional; LP: #805596.
