Control: reassign -1 src:debian-installer Hi, Dominik George <firstname.lastname@example.org> (2015-08-03): > The Debian installer images for jessie apparently do not have watchdog > support enabled in the kernel, so they do not send heartbeats to the > BIOS. > > This results in the installer system aborting and the machine resetting > after five minutes, or whatever the BIOS sees as watchdog timeout. > > Disabling watchdog support during installation is obviously a simple > workaround, but it could still be enabled as to my knowledge, it does > not make the kernel significantly better. Reassigning to debian-installer, which is likely to be a way better place to start than general. It might just be a matter of setting the right option (HEARTBEAT, as a wild guess) on the kernel side though, so I'm copying the kernel maintainers. They're welcome to steal the bug from src:debian-installer if they feel it's appropriate. Looking at svn or at installed kernels, I don't see this option set anywhere but sh4 and m68k though, so I'm not sure the installed system would be different than the installer one… Mraw, KiBi.
