Using the testing DVD that I downloaded the evening of 3 Feb 2012,
installation fails near the end (95% or so of the way through "Select
and install software") using the text installer.

Steps followed: all choices were the defaults except as follows --

* use entire disk with LVM
* use guided partitioning, separate /home
* use kernel linux-image-3.1.0
* scan another CD: No
* use a network mirror: Yes
  * debian.lcs.mit.edu mirror
* install options: Debian desktop, SSH server

Install failed after "Configuring ntfsprogs". -- Joe

It appears the install log wasn't saved, but indeed when I mount the
drive with TRK, I now see the 12-GB drive (this is a VM) has been
divided up into a 243-MB /boot, 424 MB swap, 3.33-GB /, and 8.01-GB
/home, with the / partition completely full.

Can the installer be corrected to partition things out more sanely on
small drives like this, or at least warn after the tasksel stage that
install may fail because / wasn't allocated enough space? -- Joe

You didn't provided enough free space for what you decided to install.
There are more than a dozen reports regarding this very same issue,
there's no solution (yet) for this issue.
Closing as this is already known and mentioned in the previous reports.
IMHO there's no point in keeping a 17th BR for the same issue.

#241478 - Should not show the autopartitioning dialog when there is no enough space (even on the entire drive)

#250284 - Should warn when trying to create file system in partitions with inadapted (too small) size

#264903 - Please check size

#265290 - 1.8GB are not enough for / with desktop (autopartition with home)

#282155 - distinguish out-of-space from other installation failures

#356521 - "free space is too small" error should say roughly what the minimum size has to be

#368690 - Should better handle a full partition in the target system

#399686 - debootstrap should fail when there is no more diskspace.

#410735 - installation-report: tasksel should give information about discspace

#435769 - debian-installer: no checking for sufficient disk space

#538348 - pkgsel/tasksel: can no longer determine free space for desktop task

#553482 - installation-reports: confusing error message if partition too small

#579523 - pkgsel - Does not detect ENOSPC errors

#591277 - Minimal size for partitions might be too small

#593545 - Fails on disk space with autopart, sep. /home, too many tasks

#593998 - installation-reports: Guided setup cannot install Desktop as root partition too small

Melhores cumprimentos/Best regards,
