Bug#989593: installation report Raspberry Pi 4 UEFI

Package: installation-reports
Version: 2.78
Severity: normal
Tags: d-i


I followed the instructions given on
to install Debian on a Raspberry Pi using the UEFI firmware
available for the raspi.

This involves unpacking the official Debian 11 image into an ESP
partition on an USB medium and using the Rasberry Pi UEFI firmware
to boot the installer via UEFI => grub => Linux. Once the
installe has started, this feels 100 % like a standard Debian

I experienced the following issues:

"Detecting Hardware" complains about missing firmware. I guess
that's Wifi related, since the Wifi Interface doesn't work in the
installed system and the 1000Base-TX interface works fine without.

Requesting German keyboard layout does not work in the beginning
of installation, domain name and user name configuration still happens
with the default US keyboard layout. Later, when configuring the
network mirror, the keyboard layout has been changed to the requested
german layout. I guess this happens during base system installation.

For very strange reasons, the installed system ends up without
/sbin/start-stop-daemon despite the dpkg package being in state "ii".
This is reproducible. In the installer, I see a temporary diversion of
/sbin/start-stop-daemon, but in the installed system, dpkg-divert --list
doesn't show that.

/var/lib/dpkg/diversions-old has those three lines:

There is no /sbin/start-stop-daemon.REAL though.

And, the installed system does neither have /var/log/installer nor
/var/log/debian-installer. This is also reproducible :-(   Where would I
find the files that get copied to /target/var/log/installer in the
still running installer?
