console-setup is not installed, which breaks a few things like virtual
terminals from the 'createvt' flag.
Removing the FAI debian wheezy repository resolves this issue.
Btw, is the FAI repository required for building the NFSroot (running
fai-setup and/or fai-nfsroot) or can I remove it once fai-server has
