Strange. Should work.

I meant the first. The 'set -e' means that execution of a script is broken
off if there is an error while executing a command. The 'set -x' enables
debugging. You can enable both at the same time.

When I add the 'set -x', I get this in the syslog:

Note that this command is only executed right at the end of the
installation: when the regular user is created in the installed system.
So, you can only see this output when the very last dialog is shown.
Hmm, but you never get to that stage, so it's no wonder you don't see any
output...

Ah! Lightning strikes and fires up my brain at last!
That also explains _why_ we get chage. Because user-setup-apply is run at
the very end of the installation, shadow passwords are _not_ enabled during
pkgsel, so these "errors" are entirely expected.
Checking the log for an i386 installation I see the same error there too.

We may want to rethink when we enable shadow passwords...

Good, that solves that riddle. Now we're still left with awk failing on you
during the install. I'm afraid I have no clue on that one though.
It seems to be the only real issue in your report though.

Thanks very much again for your work following up on this.

Cheers,
FJP
