Bug#591277: debian-installer: Root LV created awfully small

Package: debian-installer
Version: d-i
Severity: minor

I picked the netinst iso and installed Squeeze this weekend into a 
virtual machine (VirtualBox) using an 8 GB virtual hard drive. I decided 
to use LVM with seperate /home LV and had d-i decide on the LV sizes. d-i 
chose the size of the root LV to be about 2 GB, giving me just enough 
rope to hang myself. It ran out of disk space when I tried to install GNOME.

This is of course my fault (I should have checked the LV sizes d-i 
suggested) but some sanity checks on LV / partition size would 
nevertheless make sense.

Best regards
