Bug Description


I tried to install jaunty from CD on a Dell XPS M1330 using whole hard disk for ubuntu and setting file system ext4.
Unfortunately it has not worked for me. Around 97/98% of installing session an error come up saying "no possible remove..." (I forgot name packages, but should be something about languages packages).

When I reboot system after complete install, system hang up just after grub, displaying something like:

(hd0,0) ext4 kernel image UUID=.....

I tried installation 2 times. ISO downloaded for cd is correct, and I re-test status cd from installer and everything seems fine.

Then I have installed ubuntu choosing ext3 file system and this time first shot has worked.
So looks like a problem about ext4.

Please try with Ubuntu Karmic Koala version which supports ext4.
