Title: Re: Debian 9 on hercules
Hello again,

I did it!  Problem is not fixed, but I figured out a workaround:
- install Debian 8.1
- do upgrade with 9 sources.list
- do dist-upgrade after that

bercik@rescue:~$ cat /etc/issue.net 
Debian GNU/Linux 9
bercik@rescue:~$ uname -a
Linux rescue 4.9.0-3-s390x #1 SMP Debian 4.9.30-2+deb9u3 (2017-08-06) s390x GNU/Linux
bercik@rescue:~$ date
sob, 19 sie 2017, 20:38:28 CEST

So it's not kernel issue or anything else. It must be something wrong with installer itself. Should I report a problem somewhere? or we are only ones who can't do fresh install on hercules?

Hello list,

I also confirm Bercik's finding from an previous e-mail (18 Jun 2017, https://lists.debian.org/debian-s390/2017/06/msg00006.html) - Debian 9 IPL stops when network interfaces configuration is coming up.
Last visible message is "Configure the network device".
Debian 8.9 with same Hercules configuration shows the expected network configuration menu.

Tested with: Debian 9.1 netinst

p.s. while using Debian 8.9, the SSH server for the installer fails to sent the password prompt (ie. transport layer is working, but user authentication isn't) - any ideas?
