Bug#279090: No 2nd stage after installation with netinst CD using network-console
I have created patches for both prebaseconfig and network-console.
The main fixes are in the patch for prebaseconfig (see #279213).
The patches can be uploaded independently.
This patch for network-console only makes sure the script does not fail if
network-console-config fails to install and adds some logging.
I leave this bug report open as I think a dialog should be added after the
string freeze for RC2 to explain to the user that base-config will be
started on the main console after reboot.
The patch I committed to svn is as follows:
