from Jan 28.


The graphical installation program caused the computer to hang at the
language selection menu. The normal "bluescreen" installation program
worked just fine.

I noticed the same behavior in VirtualBox installations from quite a while, but I'm not sure if it's a VirtualBox oddity or not. With your report it's the 2nd real hardware installation report who mentions the same issue with graphical installation.

More feedback from graphical installations would be great.
I experienced the same problem while installing Debian Testing on a Lenovo Thinkpad T61 about a month ago. The ISO image was probably from Dec 31 or Jan 1 but I'm not certain. I have a few different computers in my possession. Would it be useful for you if I tested if the graphical installation works on these?

In the tasksel menu, some hexadecimal numbers were shown instead of the
task names. Screenshot: http://imgur.com/nitCL

This was very recently fixed: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=657389
If you use a daily image will be bot affected by this.

Yes, I just noticed that tasksel is now fixed on my installed system.
