The installer/partition guide tried to use 500GB as swap space in my encrypted volume group.

Could not use the auto partitioner, had to use a manual install...

Well, this is a matter of taste and even sometimes religion..:-)

The appropriate size of swap on Linux systems is something often
debated. In the installer, it is, IIRC, calculated from the disk size,
the automatic partitioning recipes and the system's RAM (I'm unsure
about the system RAM).

As nothing else went wrong (things were just not fitting your taste),
I therefore close this installation report.
