2019-04-14 07:21:43 Walter Lapchynski description Lubuntu 18.10 Cosmic In doing a manual install, I always format the '/' root partition, but leave all others alone. Thus for all others, I kept the partition edit option at "Keep". After changing the partition for '/' to "Format", I noticed that there was no display column for "Format?" as there is for gparted, to see at a glance which partitions were to be formatted. Therefore, I went back and edited the partition, and found that the option was no longer "Format", but had reverted to "Keep". I tried several times to change it to "Format", and each time it reverted to "Keep". When I decided to go ahead with the install anyway, I was presented with a list of tasks to be effected, the first five (!) of which were "Format sdb_ as "/" (or some such wording). I hope that it did not actually format the partition 5 times (but it did seem to take a while!). ---------------------------------------------------------- $ uname -a Linux scott-Asus-M2N68-AM-Plus 4.15.0-22-generic #24-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 16 12:15:17 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux $lsb_release -dsc Ubuntu Cosmic Cuttlefish (development branch) $echo $DESKTOP_SESSION cosmic $ apt-cache policy calamares calamares: Installed: 3.2.0-1 Candidate: 3.2.0-1 Version table: *** 3.2.0-1 500 500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu cosmic/universe amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status $ apt-cache policy partitionmanager partitionmanager: Installed: 3.3.1-2 Candidate: 3.3.1-2 Version table: *** 3.3.1-2 500 500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu cosmic/universe amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status ---------------------------------------------------------- STEPS TO REPRODUCE 1.
