DeviceException: Could not find device for path /dev/sda
Installer goes on.
/dev/sda should be one of flash memory card readers on PS3 60GB model. When I tried rawhide, no flash memory card was in the readers.
Other platforms than PS3, including x86 PCs, may have the same problem if any empty card readers are connected. However, I haven't tried that.
