Bug#820036: Debian does not run on systems with Secure Boot enabled

Ben Hutchings-3
Package: general
Severity: important

Most new desktop/laptop PCs cannot run Debian without the firmware
being reconfigured to disable Secure Boot.  This is a known problem
that is being worked on, but it hasn't so far been properly recorded
in the BTS.

This is a tracking bug which will be marked as blocked by more
specific bugs in the packages that need changes.  Please don't try to
'tidy it up' by reassigning it - this issue requires changes in many
packages and by several teams.

Ben.

Bug#820036: Debian does not run on systems with Secure Boot enabled

Ben Hutchings-3
Control: summary -1

GRUB and Linux images are now signed by the production key trusted by
shim-signed.  Debian-installer apparently installs the signed packages,
but other installation systems are not yet ready.
