Subject: Nothing listed in task selector on install
Mime-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

Package: tasksel
Version: potato i386 boot-floppies 2.2.4
Severity: Grave

None of the installs I have done have ever listed anything when I got to
the step after the configuration of the base system where you are asked to
select what type of install.  This is the point where I assume you should
get choices like workstation, development, server, etc.

I am guessing this is the package responsible for this task.  If not, or if
the flaw lies elsewhere, please reassign.

The only reason I have not rated this as release critical is that it might
be an artifact of the peculiarities of my install.  In particular, I have
modified apt's sources.list during install to add some paths, including
ones to disk files on ntfs mounted partitions and cd-rom's (generated with
apt-cdrom).  Both the disk and CD's are crude: they contain selected debs,
and Packages files which don't match what's actually there.  However, I
think all such problems would show up after the task selection phase.

I have noted similar reports from other people.
