Comment 2 for bug 62986

Just tried with the daily (30th) install CD. The installation hung at "Retrieving file 813 of 813". These are the tails of dpkg related logs, without timestamps:

/target/var/log/dpkg.log:
install xresprobe <none> 0.4.24
status half-installed xresprobe 0.4.24
status unpacked xresprobe 0.4.24
status unpacked xresprobe 0.4.24
status unpacked xresprobe 0.4.24
status half-configured xresprobe 0.4.24
status installed xresprobe 0.4.24

/target/var/log/aptitude
[INSTALL] zip
========================================

Log complete.

I'm going to try an install from the desktop CD. The 'nv' drivers on there are giving me grief, but I think I can get to a fullscreen terminal before X hangs the system.
