Bug Description

In the example preseed file linked from , there is a reference to

d-i partman/confirm_write_new_label boolean true

This is no longer correct, and should say

d-i partman-partitioning/confirm_write_new_label boolean true

STABLE UPDATE: This is documentation only, and I think it would be good to have our preseeding documentation usable by default. This bug is fixed in trunk ( and it's a simple backport ( Maverick will get the fix via a merge from unstable.

1. install installation-guide-i386
2. edit the file /usr/share/doc/installation-guide-i386/example-preseed.txt.gz
3. Check line 160

- The line 160 is:
d-i partman-partitioning/confirm_write_new_label boolean true

installation-guide (20081208ubuntu7.1) lucid-proposed; urgency=low

  * Backport from trunk:
    - partman/confirm_write_new_label was renamed to
      partman-partitioning/confirm_write_new_label in r50363, December 2007.
      Adjust preseeding documentation to match (LP: #591199).
