can you reproduce it when you use --debian-installer-distribution daily ?
if yes, then it's a live-helper bug, if not, then not. :)
Not necessarily. live-helper may interact badly with
--debian-installer-distribution squeeze (whatever installer that
corresponds to), but be happy with the daily version. Or might be
unhappy with both. Has anybody else tried to install squeeze with a
DVD generated by your latest released version of live-helper?
Furthermore as I said, I am in no position anymore to test
installation in any way since I am already completely satisfied with
the results of the alternative daily snapshot version of the squeeze
installer that I used for this production system, and I don't want to
"mess with success".
So my message simply is a heads-up to this list that there is a severe
problem for expert text installs (at least for the stated live-helper
configuration I was using and my bog-standard amd64 system with SATA
disk drive). If you have some evidence that squeeze installs are
actually working for some configurations with your latest release,
then I appreciate you will want to wait to investigate this until and
if someone else has trouble with squeeze installs. But considering
the installation success I had with the daily snapshot of the squeeze
installar, I thought I had better let you know that the installer did
not work for me for the live-helper version for the conditions stated.
