Squeeze amd64/i386 d-i images with Linux kernel 3.2.4 bpo, and WPA support

After a long silence, I updated the bpo Debian-installer for Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.4, Squeeze. You know, you can take it from http://kmuto.jp/debian/d-i/.

  • bases on Debian 6.0.4 Squeeze with firmwares
  • uses Linux kernel 3.2.4 (linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.1 3.2.4-1~bpo60+1)
  • includes fixed DHCP client for buggy MacOS X DHCP server
  • supports WiFi WPA
  • includes backported finish-install to fix wrong /etc/inittab on some environments.

iso-hybrid

Hi,

are the images now iso-hybrid, meaning I can just dd them e.g. to a usb key?

is this WPA only or also WPA2?

Marcus: I'm not sure. This image still uses mkisofs.
txt.file: I believe it supports WPA2.

sqarre11,
see FAQ in my d-i page about NVidia driver.
And I dunno details about Compiz. It may work with NVidia driver.

These install images have been a great help to install our new pair of dell r710 for the IT service at fcien.edu.uy. Very good work.

Thank you for these images. With squeeze-custom-amd64-0315.iso it was possible to install debian squeeze to a new gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H UEFI motherboard with SSD. The normal debian squeeze installer image did not support the atheros ar8151 ethernet, but your image worked perfectly. Plus I wanted a more recent kernel with ext4 to support TRIM for my SSD (I'm not sure if the standard installer supports ext4), so this image solved both of these problems.

Perhaps the only thing more I could ask for is for the grub-efi-amd64 package to be supported in the installer, but I cheated and copied the grub-efi bootloader from a gparted-live image and hand edited grub.cfg to boot the installed system. Thanks again.

Thanks for the effort, but is anybody having any luck with the netboot-amd64-0315.tar.gz version? It appears like the modules in the initrd dont match the kernel image, hence no storage device is found.

Nevermind, I didn't interpret
http://kmuto.jp/debian/d-i/#tftpboot-squeeze
well.

In case other people are confused about it as well: you have to download the ISO and host its contents as your personal Debian mirror:
- host files inside the kmuto ISO somewhere on a web server (e.g. your PXE server itself, but any webserver accessible from your PXE subnet will do)
- add an extra debian-installer parameter to the "append" line in your pxelinux.cfg/default file:
append initrd=path/to/initrd.gz debian-installer/allow_unauthenticated=true --
- boot the kmuto netboot as you would with the official debian pxe images
- when prompted to select a mirror, choose to enter a mirror manually (top of the list) and enter the requested information (IP and folder)

Works like a charm now.

Thanks kind anonymous, you wrote well :)

At this time using netboot is very confusable by many reasons.

How can I install this with KDE?

Beware, RTL81xx is broken on Debian and even firmware won't fix it, as its broken globally.

This is for all realtek devices using rtl8192cu driver:
https://wiki.debian.org/rtl819x#supported-rtl8192cu

I have RTL8188CUS, and it disconnects every 3 seconds. This is the reason:
http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/wireless/486547-airlink-awll5099-realtek-rtl8188cus-rtl8192cu-connection-ceases.html

So, unless someone apt proposes this patch into current kernel, all devices will stay broken. :(
Sadly, I still lack skill even to test the patch :((

PS:
No, manually installing Realtek firmware does NOT fix the issue.
