If you select English as language the installer only shows countries that have English as an official language, same for other languages. > Before starting the partitioner, system halts for like two minutes on a > blank blue screen with the floppy light on That must be during driver loading. Strange that it takes so long. That probably coincided with: Jun 14 12:12:59 kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0 Jun 14 12:13:33 kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0 Jun 14 12:13:35 main-menu: DEBUG: resolver (libtextwrap1): package doesn't exist (ignored) Jun 14 12:13:35 main-menu: INFO: Menu item 'partman-base' selected Jun 14 12:13:36 kernel: JFS: nTxBlock = 4543, nTxLock = 36350 Jun 14 12:13:36 kernel: SGI XFS with ACLs, security attributes, realtime, large block numbers, no debug enabled Jun 14 12:13:36 kernel: SGI XFS Quota Management subsystem Jun 14 12:14:11 kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0 Jun 14 12:14:45 kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0 Not sure why this is, especially as you actually do have a floppy drive.

It is being installed when the question is shown as the question is part of the popcon package; it is purged based on the answer. That's a choice made by Joey when he (re)implemented popcon support. IIRC Woody used to leave popcon installed after answering no, but both solutions can be argued. > x11-common shows an upgrade warning even if we are not updating but > installing anew. That irritates us too: http://bugs.debian.org/372077 > After installation, quite a few mailboxes, including Debian-exim, > identd and the user created during installation, are created in > /var/mail, but with zero size and owned by root, inhibiting mail > delivery. That is serious. Looks like a bug in add-user. I get the following myself: ---------- 1 root mail 0 2006-06-20 13:41 Debian-exim ---------- 1 root mail 0 2006-06-20 13:55 fjp ---------- 1 root mail 0 2006-06-20 13:41 identd ---------- 1 root mail 0 2006-06-20 13:41 statd Note also the lack of permissions on the files... Thanks for your report.
