I first tried the netinst. It failed to log into my network (not a
part of this bug; I have a restricted network setup and I did not
take the time to investigate yet) but I continued the install, however, I
was informed that no kernel could be installed. Therefore I aborted
the installation.

Then I downloaded the -kde version of the installer. It showed the
following errors:

a) Again, no kernel could be installed. I had to manually (via USB
   stick) transfer the kernel*deb onto the machine and install it by
   hand (interestingly, most of the dependencies were available on the

b) I installed an fully encrypted system. However, neither the package
   "cryptsetup" nor the package "lvm" was installed, thus the
   installed system failed in the initrd with strange errors that the
   root file system could not be found.

c) I had selected German during the installation, however, KDE is
   presenting itself in English.

While c) is a minor problem, I regard a) and b) as show stopper. 


Please make sure that the hardware-summary log file, and any other
installation logs that you think would be useful are attached to this
