I used a 2Gb image, with encrypted LVM and automatic partitioning with 
separate /home, /usr, /var, /tmp partitions.

I then choosed "Desktop environement" and "Laptop" in the tasksel.

The installation failed with a short error (attached) telling that the 
step "Installation of packages" failed. Moving to another console and df'ing 
and 'cat /var/log/syslog' showed that /target/var was full and thus blocked the 
downloading of more packages.

I know that this can be avoided with the default choice (everything in 
single / ) and these partitioning receipts are hard to make.

Eventual solutions:
* Check that the download size will fit in /var and warn about this before the 
* Once the error popped up, check if partitions are at 100% and mention it…

Thanks for your report.
Closing as it's an installation report from a debian installer version
which isn't supported anymore.
Feel free to test and report any issues against the current debian
installer release (Squeeze RC1) which supports more hardware and also
it's improved.


Melhores cumprimentos/Best regards,

Miguel Figueiredo
