On the first point, (a), can anyone comment on how much space is
really required for root filesystem and give feedback for partman?
The second point, (b), apt-get seems to be unable to calculate space
required for the kernel package
I actually did a successful `apt-get dist-upgrade' for the whole
system, hundreds of packages, and only this package had an issue. I
don't know if there is anything unusual about the package (for
example, during preinst) that may contribute to the problem, for
example - are there any obvious issues that you are already aware of?
