+ <dt>Possibly non-working detected USB braille devices</dt></dt>
+ <dd>When letting the Debian Installer detect a plugged USB braille
+ device, the latter may end up showing only "screen not in text
+ mode". This is due to a potential race between detection and frame
+ buffer start. A workaround is to pass <tt>brltty</tt> on the kernel
+ command line to force detection.

+ <dd>niu network driver, required by newer T2+ sparc systems is not
+ included in d-i, making it impossible to install on them using any

+ kernel packages, so network is expected to operate normally after
+ installation is completed.<br />

+ <dt>Systems using aty graphics cards may not boot the installer correctly</dt>
+ Systems using aty graphics cards (for example, Ultra 10) may not

+ stage with last message "console [tty0] enabled, bootconsole
+ disabled". This is a kernel bug, for which a patch is available,
+ however it may be not fully fixed.<br />
+ The issue may be worked around by adding a kernel boot parameter
+ 'video=atyfb:off' to turn off the framebuffer during boot, which
+ allows the installer (and regular kernel) to be booted on such systems.<br />
