Status of Debian Edu "Jessie"

Changes from Wheezy to Jessie

  • Shutdown/reboot of the main server takes longer due to a default setting in squid3 (shutdown_lifetime 30 seconds).

Known problems we want to fix

  • Kerberos/LDAP startup with systemd is unreliable (758992)

  • Automatic proxy configuration fail because WPAD is ignored by the proxy command (644373)

  • Grub ask users to enter /dev/ path to hard drive on a single hard drive machine (712907)

  • Local user on roaming workstatiojn (and probably other profiles) do not have working USB plug and play. Inserting USB memory stick is not discovered in KDE. Petter suspect missing plugdev group membership or some missing policykit setup is the cause. [No problem in virtualbox vm with an USB key (profile main-server) with desktop xfce: the plugdev is discovered and usable - maybe KDE specific?]
  • The command 'net time' causes a segmentation fault (760781).

  • The cups management site 'www:631' doesn't work any longer. Remote printer management should be documented.
  • debian-edu-doc.git: the jessie manual is missing.
