Bug#650040: d-i installation profile ,,MINIMAL'': install network-manager
> The MINIMAL d-i profile for d-e machine installation does not install
> NetworkManager by default. Due to this, the hostname will not be set
> via DHCP automatically.
The original design is not to install NetworkManager to fix this, but to
enable the /etc/init.d/update-hostname script calling
/usr/bin/update-hostname-from-ip to update the hostname at boot time.
NetworkManager were not used because it would only enable network
connections when a user log in, and not at boot.
NetworkManager were only installed on standalone and roaming workstation
profiles in the original design.
Why isn't this design working any more?
