We appreciate the testing and reporting, but if you are going to do more
tests later, please use the report template:

This is a bug in cdebconf that has been fixed recently, probably not in
time for the Apr 26 image.

I've heard about this before, I guess it's not fixed yet.

Yes, I've forgotten to silence printk, that's fixed in cvs. Modprobing
for lvm modules is also removed, since those modules have to be loaded
earlier anyway.

It's because mkswap isn't in busybox-udeb. You could install
busybox-cvs-udeb to get it, but that's given us other problems before.
These things are being resolved now, so this should be fixed within a
week or so.

I don't know anything about this. :/

Thanks for the report.
