I looked on IRC, but everyone asleep.

X200 Download torrent of Debian 9 DVD 1 with non free software.
X200 install dvd to 16 GB USB drive
X250 install usb to usb
Bug: Doesn’t recognize mouse in the beginning, but does later, by the time I choose domain name.
Bug: Installation procedure doesn’t have buttons on each screen to cancel cleanly.
I really wanted those during netinstall
Bug: Non free install still asked for wifi files, but they were there already, shouldn’t it detect before asking for them?
Partition disks: guided: use entire disk and set up encrypted LVM
Was able to point to other usb drive 128 gb
Long time to erase disk
Defaults selected ongoingly
No extra desktops, just debian, not gnome.
Something failed, got back to desktop choices, chose gnome
