Comments / Problems:

* Framebuffer console is very slow with vmware, which hogs cpu (%100
even when selecting options of partitioner)
* "validation" of package zlib1g (during base system install) takes a
long time
* During base install, "installing core packages" and "unpacking the
base system" could list some of those packages below in a box
* Selecting a mirror: could calculate and suggest fastest mirror to the
!*! Hangs at "Configuring apt" (%60) for too long without explanation:
had to reboot without going further
* no way to resume failed installation
