Bug Description

In Lubuntu Alternate powerpc in Raring Daily 20130311.2, booting from the installltion disc brings up this error with a red screen shortly into the installation, just after choosing the locale.

  error while running 'modprobe -v yenta_socket'


Hitting 'enter' lets it roll past the error with the red screen but the installation then stops at the step "Configure the clock" and will not progress further.

This is a bug in linux-ppc; it looks as though it needs to provide a pcmcia-modules udeb.

The "configure the clock" bug is bug 1153992, and I *think* that's unrelated.

Testing PPC Lubuntu 14.04 2013-11-27 daily image and I also encountered this.

The error occured 3 times during my install, while doing the following tasks:

"Detect and mount CD-ROM"
"Detect network hardware"
"Detect disks"

Picture attached.

Clicking continue after each alert allows the install complete as expected.
