Bug#859233: segfault trying to install at netcfg[1996]



Package: installation-reports

Boot method: first try: after saving to HD, load the following with Grub:
http://mirrors.us.kernel.org/debian/dists/stretch/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/debian-installer/i386/initrd.gz 27-Jan-2017 22:23 21M http://mirrors.us.kernel.org/debian/dists/stretch/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/debian-installer/i386/linux 27-Jan-2017 22:23 3M
/proc/cmdline:
BOOT_IMAGE=linux vga=788 initrd=initrd.gz --- ipv6.disable=1 net.ifnames=0
netcfg/disable_dhcp=true netcfg/get_hostname=myhost
base-installer/install-recommends=false splash=0 DEBIAN_FRONTEND=gtk

subsequent tries: burn mini.iso to CDRW and boot it using same cmdline parameters as using Grub
