Bug Description

This just started happening the last few days. (less than a week, but march 13 and 14 ISOs for sure) Everything seems to installing fine till the message line says configuring target system. The progress bar gets about 1/4 over then stops. Disk activity stops, and nothing more happens. Ubiquity still waiting now over 1/2 hour later. Booted to live ubuntu studio live DVD ISO from SD card. Then double clicked install icon on desktop. Ubiquity started up fine took information to install and started installing... worked fine till hang.

OK, so I've added a bug task for that; but ubiquity still shouldn't hang.

This is actually due to reconfiguring jackd2; the kernel issue is entirely unrelated.

This bug was fixed in the package casper - 1.312

casper (1.312) precise; urgency=low

  * bin/casper-reconfigure: Unset DEBIAN_HAS_FRONTEND, DEBIAN_FRONTEND, and
    DEBCONF_REDIR so that casper-reconfigure properly uses the
    noninteractive frontend when invoked from a ubiquity target-config hook
    (LP: #955617).
