[Bug 1244176] Re: Server 13.10 Install Fails with USB Keyboard (Appears to Hang)


Okay so I figured out the problem. The kernel module ohci-pci is
seperated from ohci-hcd in 3.11 but is not included in the initramfs. I
compiled the module myself and inserted it into the initramfs and now
the installer works just fine. Here's the debian bug:
