Errata for Bullseye Alpha 2
This is a list of known problems in the Bullseye Alpha 2 release of the Debian Installer. If you do not see your problem listed here, please send us an installation report describing the problem.
- GNOME may fail to start with some virtual machine setups
- It was noticed during Stretch Alpha 4 image testing that
GNOME might fail to start depending on the setup used for virtual
machines. It seems using cirrus as an emulated video chip is fine.
Status: Being investigated.
- Desktop installations may not work using CD#1 alone
- Due to space constraints on the first CD, not all of the
expected GNOME desktop packages fit on CD#1. For a successful
installation, use extra package sources (e.g. a second CD or a
network mirror) or use a DVD instead.
Status: It is unlikely more efforts can be made to fit more packages on CD#1.
- Theme used in the installer
- There's no Bullseye artwork yet, and the installer is still using the Buster theme.
- LUKS2 is incompatible with GRUB's cryptodisk support
- It was only lately discovered that GRUB has no support for
LUKS2. This means that users who want to use
GRUB_ENABLE_CRYPTODISK and avoid a separate,
unencrypted /boot, won't be able to do so
setup isn't supported in the installer anyway, but it would
make sense to at least document this limitation more
prominently, and to have at least the possibility to opt for
LUKS1 during the installation process.
Status: Some ideas have been expressed on the bug; cryptsetup maintainers have written some specific documentation.
