Edit1: This post probably doesnt really belong here in full length.
However in terms of the topic of this thread Id like to point out, that the installation of the build linked in the first post here for me yields missing RAID and LVM moduls while detecting the disk.
Edit2: Further details might be found on stackexchange.
Hello again. Im a bit in a pickle. My system broke down as of yesterday. (KDE had trouble staying alive, as well as firefox or plenty of other programs after login). Nothing really worked anymore, I couldnt even determine if my RAM is broken or another package update caused this, always received alerts about core dump…Anyway I always have a fresh update and decided to start with a fresh install.
But I cannot not make anything work. I tried the weekly non-free firmware build mentioned above, but before partitioning in the installer I get an error about
Software RAID not available
The current kernel doesnt seem to support software RAID(MD) devices. This should be solved by loading the necessary modules.
followed by this message
Logical Volume Manager not available
The current kernel doesnt support the logical Volume Manager. You may need to load the lvm-mod module.
Eventually I fail while partitioning. I should mention I couldnt set up network access through wifi or ethernet, because neither gets recognised.
This is weird, I guess, however I tried multiple other .iso (current deb11.5+live+nonfree, different weekly or daily builds as netinst as well as the bookworm-alpha version. Neither worked out in the end.
However, unfortunately I lost track which weekly/daily-build got stuck/caused an error where, but in general the bookworm-alpha- version worked best, but often got either stuck while installing software, failed this one or the following grub installation.
I never really go stuck on the same software installation or configuration or grub installation subprocess, but eventually it never went through.
Does anyone have an idea, why I fail with so many different builds at so many different stages?
Im sorry if that sounds confusing and is hard to follow (i tried a lot and very often and might have missed some sleep)
For now I reactivated my old XPS but I really would like to figure out why this is happening or if this might be a hardware issue.
I try to keep track of what exactly went wrong where and when if I try anything else…
