Re: Offline installations no longer possible with DebianEdu Stretch?

Hi Wolfgang,

The offline installation incl. chroot worked perfectly. Thanks so much!

For the first time I also used boot parameters and I switched from kde to

Issue 1:

I?m facing issues with my thin clients. My diskless workstations work just
fine. None of my thin clients is able to boot anymore. The login screen
never shows and I get a black screen. I faced this issue before with a few
somehow special hardware thin clients but now all seem to be affected and
on both subnets.

Issue 2:

When I start the server and get to the login screen I have the option
?Plasma? available. When I choose it and log in I get an error message
telling me that packages are missing. The user is then stuck and can?t
logout anymore. Is there a way to fully remove kde so the user cannot use
it anymore and get stuck?

Kind regards,
