i386/amd64 d-i images for Etch, kernel version 2.6.23 + e1000e.

Hi, it's been a long time. I came back from busy days in my business. Now I'd like to start working for Debian again.

For those who own newest Intel motherboard, here comes a good news. Debian kernel team seems be preparing to upload kernel 2.6.23 with a patch of e1000e NIC driver. Although kernel 2.6.18 of Etch can't handle SATA or NIC of ICH9, I ported this Debian kernel 2.6.23 to my backported-d-i image (thanks Debian kernel team!). You can take it, for i386 and amd64, from here.

Comments

Great works !

This iso is perfect for the ASUS P5K serie motherboard! Network card is fully supported by the kernel 2.6.23 (atl1.ko)
I recommend it!

Thankyou so much, I have been using your previous backported installers with much success. I was just working on a 2.6.23 deb when I found this.

Keep up the good work.

Dr.

I am a newbie to Debian... but very much interested...

Generally yes.

A lot of thanks to you for doing a great job. Could you please provide some instructions how to build a d-i image with custom kernel?

Posted by Max at 2007/10/30 (Tue) 03:05:53

Max, you can see all of my build tools and a little helpful documents at http://kmuto.jp/svn/d-i/etch/.

Thanks again, Kenshi!

dvd problems

Hello! I'm completely new to linux. I'm trying to install a debian 4.0 r1 amd64 dvd image downloaded from the oficial page in my new core2 duo (E6750) with a DG33BU intel mother (apparently with ICH9 controllers). But I'm having problems with my LG dvd. The installer doesn't recognize it. Will this iso fix the problem?
Thank you very much for your time in advance.

Posted by Diego at 2007/11/01 (Thu) 12:18:14

Diego, why don't you try it before asking? :)

dvd problems

I did... didn't work.
It could be that my mother is too new?
I also tryed with another cdrom drive with a "test" net installer, and nothing. I think the problem is my controller (intel ich9 2 port serial ata).
What else can I do (besides waiting until a newer version of the installer is released)?
I need linux urgently for my work (i study computational chemistry).

Posted by Diego at 2007/11/02 (Fri) 04:42:19

Diego,
I see. the result of 'lspci -n' may provide me a useful information.
You can use this command after loading the installer and pressing Alt+F2.

Diego,
Hm, I see that your machine has two SATA controllers and one PATA. (you can check it also by using http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/)

80862920 Yes Intel Corporation 4 port SATA IDE Controller ata_piix v2.6.21
80862930 Yes Intel Corporation SMBus Controller i2c-i801 v2.6.21
80862926 Yes Intel Corporation 2 port SATA IDE Controller ata_piix v2.6.21
11ab6101 Yes Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88SE6101 single-port PATA133 interface pata_marvell v2.6.21

I suspect such multiple controllers make confuse to d-i. Unfortunately it's very hard to support your machine without real one for me. USB image may help you.

Installation Problems

I allready tryed an USB netinst image (2.6.23), but it hanged before d-i loaded. Anyway I'll keep trying. I've been making some internet reserch and found that some people had similar problems with this mother. The problem seemed to arise when a combination of SATA HD's with IDE dvd's (as in my case) was used. People that had SATA dvd's whith SATA HD's where able to install debian (2.6.23, not 2.6.22) without problems.
Or at least that is what I understood with my very limited knowledge. Is this accurate?

Posted by Diego at 2007/11/04 (Sun) 12:27:01

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the exelent job over the years

Hello,

It's been few years that I'm aware of your excellent work on back porting kernel images in the Debian Stable. I'm really thankful for that. We do use your images to setup new hardware that is not supported by Debian stable.

Please continue to update your images, I'm recommending them to all the people that I know that complain about bad hardware support under Debian Stable.

Installation Problems [solved]

Hello again. I solved the problem using parameters "install acpi=off generi.all_generic_ide=1" in the installer prompt.
So finaly I'm making my first steps out of microsoft's bubble.
Thank you very much, and congratullations for your excellent work!

P5K does not work

The module for ethernet card is not included. atl1.ko.

How Can I add it???

Hello!

I have 2 new computers with Intel Desktop Board DG33TL G33 and want to install Linux on it. I try to install Debian with Stable installer ISO images with a modification by Kenshi Mutoor. My nic detected, chipset NOT detected but VERY slow disk performance. It takes about 10 min to start system!

Thanks for all

I have the 2.6.21 kernel iso image, and it was the only debian who have works with my asus p5k deluxe wi-fi...i just installed and after downloaded the last version of kde and...BINGO! Debian in 64 bits!!!

Tip: how about you made a iso image with the kde?? Should be great have debian + KDE iso of your system...Congratulaitons about your work

Posted by Andr辿 at 2007/11/22 (Thu) 08:10:09

KmiKc>
Aha, you found my secret. Yes, I know I forgot to insert atl1.ko into d-i. I'll fix it by next upload when I have a time, but you can take atl1.ko from linux-image-*-686 deb.

mcTNT>
Very interesting :)
Does the timer seem work correctly? I suspect something wrong exists around tick timer. Teach me if there is a fix for your problem.

You can use this boot parameter to install KDE:
install tasks="standard, kde-desktop"
See Debian Etch release-note for more details.

DG33TL

I have DG33TL with IDE CD-ROM and SATA harddisk. With the option described by Diego (install acpi=off generi.all_generic_ide=1) i can start the installation but until now i haven't finished it. The reasons: with acpi=off only one core of my intel Core 2 Duo is used. So my question is: do i need "acpi=off" only for installation or also for daily use? If i have to use "acpi=off" always i will probably stay for some time with Fedora8 which recognize everything and works with acpi (which means both cores are used).

Can anyone clerify about this?

Posted by pinky at 2007/12/04 (Tue) 04:21:10

where can i get the 2.6.23 kernel deb packages

Posted by infi at 2007/12/05 (Wed) 17:07:52

infi,

you can take it from pool/main in CD.
Or you'll see official 2.6.23 deb in Debian unstable. (ATM there isn't 2.6.23 in etch-bpo repository.)

Posted by kmuto at 2007/12/05 (Wed) 20:51:50

linux-headers ?

I've just tried etch-custom-1013.iso for AMD64 on a MSI P35 platinium card.

The system is using 2 SATA disk as AHCI and everything is working fine !

You do a great job, thx a lot !

Is there a linux-headers package for 2.6.23 ?

Posted by Krapule at 2007/12/06 (Thu) 02:02:25

Krapule,

You'll see it after doing "apt-cdrom add".

Waiting for root filesystem

Hi everyone, I've been trying to set up a new computer with a new Intel board and a SATA disk. I've used the ISO above to install using acpi=off generi.all_generic_ide=1 on boot which worked great. But after install completed and I rebooted, the system hanged at "waiting for root filesystem" and eventually failing with error /dev/hde1/ does not exist. I saw this problem mentioned somewhere earlier today and now I can't find it anymore... Anyone have any ideas/tips?


thanks in advance,
Renato

Posted by Renato at 2007/12/09 (Sun) 02:19:19

Hi all, interesting enough, I had to return the computer to the shop cause I noticed that the ide cable for the cdrom was partly defective and because I noticed some serious heat problems, and now after getting the machine back, it install flawlessly...

Best regards, Renato

DG33TL

Pinky,

change acpi=off to pci=nommconf
I have the same board and Core2Duo and with this parameter both CPUs are used. :-)

Best regards, Jirka

thanks kmuto!!!

So far this release works great for me.
But does someone found a way to install nvidia drivers with this package? Doesn't seem to work.

Posted by Pudwerx at 2007/12/29 (Sat) 14:17:39

generic.all_generic_ide=1 Corrected

er, nobody caught this yet?

3 separate posts here say to use;

"generi.all_generic_ide=1"

which is misspelled; corrected is;

"generic.all_generic_ide=1"

Naturally, the full command would be;
"install acpi=off generic.all_generic_ide=1" if one also wants to add/use the 'acpi=off' option - the "install" prefix is necessary for any/all commands, if i'm not mistaken.

Also;
Concerning SATA DVD Drives;
I know Dell releases the g33 / ICH9 Mobo on atleast teh Inspiron 530 Model, which does NOT have a separate choice for AHCI in the BIOS - only [RAID] or [IDE] are available - i've found that setting this to [RAID] is what enables the AHCI functionality and a recognized DVD drive for installation.

thanks for your awesome work kenshi! ;-)

Thanks a lot for this great job!
This installer works perfectly on an ASUS P5E (intel Q35 express) Mainboard.

I'm still having difficulties with a nvidia graphic board; the nvidia installer fails. logs aren't clear to me, but kernel headers seems involved (installed with aptitude install kernel-headers-$(uname -r).

Hi thanks for these packages. My motherboard is Intel DG33BU and it works with the following options pci=nommconf generic.all_generic_ide=1, but after used the latest BIOS from the intel site. Before updating the BIOS I've to use the irqpoll=0 but the installation hangs on detecting hardware. Now everything is working fine. Hope this help somebody :)
