I am using debian installer together with a preseed config-file to automate installation steps.

Currently the network-card selection still shows up and I cannot find out why.

I have the following networking-related lines

d-i netcfg/choose_interface select auto
d-i netcfg/choose_interface select enp0s8
d-i netcfg/link_wait_timeout string 20

The selected interface-card is available in the dialog that appears and also when installation finishes:

$ sudo ifconfig
enp0s8: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500

However the Debian installer still stops and forces me to choose the network-card to use.

How do adjust the preseed file to also perform this selection automatically?
