Test case
  • Do a clone of nethserver-devbox repository, build the ISO and use it to install a new machine
  • Check the bug is not reproducible (see note 4)

Note: latest NON public build of ISO can be found here: http://git.nethesis.it/install/nethserver/iso/NethServer-6.6beta1-x86_64.iso
If someone want to try it, feel free to ask.

TZ is not asked.
After install keyb is it if Italian is chosen during install.

Note: install always uses us keyb, maybe we could add a note in the manual or in the installer.
It's important because the user has no feedback while setting the password, he thinks he's typing some chars, but it's really writing something different.
