I managed to get Debian 8 installed earlier today and I think I am close in regards to installing Debian 9 (Stretch).

I only have some experience with CentOS versions and with those I can do most things myself, however, Debian is a different story.
The automated installation of a container with Debian 9 I experiene two minor problems. Probably it's easy to solve, but I have no clue.

First off; for some reason the minimal version of Debian 9 doesn't work. So I am doing it now differently; install a Debian 8 container and upgrade it to Debian 9.
However it hangs on two processes...

The first one is this:

root     10918 10890  0 16:15 pts/0    00:00:00 dialog --backtitle Package configuration --title Configuring libc6 --output-fd 11 --nocancel --msgbox Kernel version not supported  This version of the GNU libc requires kernel version 3.2 or later.   Older versions might work but are not officially supported. Please  consider upgrading your kernel. 11 75


Upgrading the kernel is not a solution, so the only solution I have here is by killing the process. Then it will continue.
Maybe someone has a better approach for this? If not, then I will just try to create something automated which kills this process, so it continues to install.


The second problem is more annoying:
root     19436 19428  0 16:44 pts/0    00:00:00 /usr/bin/dpkg --status-fd 29 --configure man-db:amd64 mlocate:amd64 wide-dhcpv6-client:amd64
root     19437 19436  6 16:44 pts/0    00:00:00 /usr/bin/perl -w /usr/share/debconf/frontend /var/lib/dpkg/info/wide-dhcpv6-client.postinst configure 20080615-12
root     19443 19437  0 16:44 pts/0    00:00:00 /bin/sh /var/lib/dpkg/info/wide-dhcpv6-client.config configure 20080615-12
root     19445 19437  0 16:44 pts/0    00:00:00 dialog --backtitle Package configuration --title Configuring wide-dhcpv6-client --output-fd 11 --nocancel --inputbox Network interfaces on which the DHCPv6 client sends requests should be  specified here. Multiple interfaces are separated with spaces. An empty line temporarily disables dhcp6c.  Interfaces on which the DHCPv6 client sends requests: 11 78


I checked the dialog screen when I re-ran it, after killing the processes, with "dpkg --configure -a" I got a screen about "Conifguring wide-dhcpv6-client" and I could just click (or hit enter) to pass it.

Is there also a workaround for this? So the installation doesn't stop on either problem anymore?

I managed to finish the installation manually and everything seems to work perfectly...

Hopefully someone can provide some insight or solution for the mentioned issues above. Thank you in advance for your expertise! Highly appreciated.
