Comment 5 for bug 570805


Thanks for the link.

The cause, is in fact, the same (fsync's in dpkg).

The solution, though, might be subtlety different. As I've said above, I can understand and agree with the change in behavior for updates/upgrades on a running system.

This current bug, though, is about what's going on in the installer on fresh installs, when you have no critical data yet on the system. I'm hoping this bug will be fixed separately from bug #537241.
