Errata for Jessie RC 2

This is a list of known problems in the Jessie RC 2 release of the Debian Installer. If you do not see your problem listed here, please send us an installation report describing the problem.

Possible hang with DHCPv6 stateful addressing
Network configuration may hang after the domain prompt if a DHCPv6 server is present on the network. In this case installation can be continued by issuing the kill `pidof dhcp6c` and kill `pidof udhcpc` commands on the console.
Status: A bug fix for #768188 (which also affects Jessie RC 1) should be merged for Jessie RC 3.
Network connectivity required during hd-media installs on several armel/armhf/arm64 platforms
On several armel/armhf/arm64 platforms, hd-media based installs which:
  • use only the first CD/DVD and
  • have not been configured to use a network mirror
fail in the make the system bootable step. The reason is that to make the system bootable, those platforms require the u-boot-tools package, which is not available on the first CD/DVD. If a network mirror has been configured during the installation, the missing package is downloaded automatically and the installation succeeds.
Status: A bug fix for #780994 (which also affects Jessie RC 1) should be merged for Jessie RC 3.
