During installing sarge with images from

The minimum size you can use is 512.0 B or 0% and the maximum size is

[!] Partition disks
Too large size
Besides that, the dialog doesn't say does it interpret kB, MB and GB as
powers of 1000 or 1024. It should clearly mention how will it interpret
these. Best if it would say that kB, MB and GB will mean powers of 1000,
and kiB, MiB and GiB will mean powers of 1024.

[ Colin Watson ]
* Merge from Ubuntu:
- Disable backup while displaying device/partition locked errors; it
makes no sense and it can cause us to exit without closing the FIFO to
parted_server (closes: #505477, LP: #274219).
- Add support for explicit 'b' or 'B' suffixes on partition sizes to
force interpretation as bytes (closes: #322922).
- Add a small test suite for longint2human and human2longint.
- Exclude /dev/ramzswap devices (http://code.google.com/p/compcache/).
- Add partman/early_command hook to run arbitrary commands immediately
before partitioning (LP: #239348).
- Exit straight away if a called script is killed by a signal.
- Only mark the partition table as changed due to CHANGE_FILE_SYSTEM if
it actually makes a change (i.e. the partition wasn't already using
that filesystem or didn't have that flag set). This avoids the
partition table being rewritten even if partman did nothing more than
autousing swap (LP: #287660).
- Add partman/default_filesystem template so that we can remove
hardcoding of ext3 from elsewhere in partman, and make the default
- Check dmraid's exit code rather than parsing its output.
- Don't display the Back button when asking for confirmation, since it's
already a boolean "do you want to continue?" question and we ignore
backup anyway (LP: #9244).
- Cope with exception options, partition flags passed to SET_FLAGS, and
the partition name passed to SET_NAME being empty (closes: #268495).
- Use 'update-dev --settle' rather than 'update-dev' during commit.
Requires di-utils 1.66.
* Run 'depmod -a' after loading extra partman components, since they might
install further kernel modules as dependencies.
* Mark partman/exception_handler and partman/exception_handler_note unseen
before asking them; they're effectively error messages but implemented
using select and boolean templates, so won't necessarily be reshown
otherwise, and failures may be very confusing if these aren't shown.
