Package: debian-installer
Severity: critical
Justification: causes serious data loss


I upgraded this morning by downloading the business card image and 
booting off it. I had / on an IDE disk, and /home on a raid1 device made 
up of two sata disks. On upgrade, it was my intention to let d-i 
partition the IDE disk, but hang on to /home. It appeared to do this. 
but reboot, I installed mdadm and attempted to assemble and mount 
/dev/md0. mdadm said that sdb was out of sync, and the kernel said that 
the device lacked superblocks. Testing with fsck -b showed that none of 
the backup superblocks was working.

D-I questions: I just pressed enter at the prompt, and set my keyboard 
and location to enGB. On reaching the disk stage, I asked it to set up 
hda as a LVM with / /home /tmp and /var on seperate paritions. On 
checking the result seemed to suggest no changes to /dev/sda or 
/dev/sdb. I have attached syslog and partman from /var/log/installer. 

If you have any questions, or I can help further, please ask. I'm psn on 
oftc. Any suggestions as to what I did wrong or how to recover would be 
really nice.

   * Allow recognition of recent MINIX installations.

   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Improve error message when /sys/block is missing.
   * os-prober doesn't know how to probe other OSes on non-Linux kernels.
     For now, just exit quietly rather than confusing people (closes:
   * Ignore active swap partitions (thanks, Alex Owen; see #417407).
   * Refactor linux_mount_boot to look up labels and UUIDs using blkid or
     /dev/disk/by-*/ rather than relying on mount being smart enough.  This
     removes some horrible code that executes mount from /target.
   * Set partitions read-only before mounting them (based on a patch by Alex
     Owen; closes: #417407, #556739, #599203).
