Well, I followed your advice and tried to make a "simple" install from
the current Debian repository:
I created a profiles/KDEPROFILE.packages containing the following lines:
And a profiles/KDEPROFILE.preseed containing:
d-i debian-installer/locale string fr_FR
d-i console-keymaps-at/keymap select fr
these two are handled by the commandline options which you included
below (--locale and --keyboard) ... specifying them in the preseed file
won't work- just use the commandline, or specify in
d-i clok-setup/utc boolean true
d-i time/zone string Europe/Paris
d-i pkgsel/include string standard kde-desktop
d-i pkgsel/include string kde-i18n-fr
specifying a question twice will not work... it will select one or the
other, but not both.
also, simple-cdd makes no attempt to include packages specified with
this question. best to add them to profiles/KDEPROFILE.packages.
d-i finish-install/reboot_in_progress note
I then launched the following command:
build-simple-cdd --locale fr_FR --keyboard fr-latin1 --profiles KDEPROFILE
(I didn't really understood the meaning of the --profiles-udeb option)
the --profiles-udeb-dist option is merely to pull the
simple-cdd-profiles udeb, which is what handles all the simple-cdd stuff
in debian-installer. because simple-cdd wasn't included in etch, you
need to get the simple-cdd-profiles udeb from sid or lenny. if it's
already in the mirror that simple-cdd generates from a previous run,
then you don't actually need to specify it again.
First strange behaviour:
I didn't say anything about partitionning, but the install only asks me
while partitionning is already finished.
yes, profiles/default.preseed has some automatic partitioning selected
by default, but still asks the question before it does anything
Install seems to succeed, but when my PC reboots, I see the message:
"Not starting internet superserver: no services enabled". And of course,
kdm wasn't launched.
it doesn't appear that the packages you selected in
profiles/KDEPROFILE.packages has anything that depends on kdm, so kdm is
not likely present on your CD image.
