Bug#411443: installation-reports


I understand your view regarding XFS.  

About the mouse issue, with whom should I follow up with a bug report?  
That one isn't going away... I also saw the same problem with 
Kanotix and Ubuntu live CDs, but I settled on installing Etch because
I wanted absolutely no compatibility issues with Debian's 15k packages.
So it's probably an upstream problem that isn't getting fixed any time
But no time like the present to get the wheels rolling...

This is not really an installer issue. Can't really help with that.

Well, XFS is not a default choice. If you really want to use XFS, manual
partitioning is probably the best option anyway to setup things as you
want them. It's pretty hard to support your suggestion in Guided
partitioning and I doubt that it is worth the effort.
Best would be if XFS support in grub would finally be fixed...

Closing your report as that installation was successful. Thank you for
filing the report and good luck with your new system.
