Bug Description


When installing oneiric beta 1 with the hd-media image, the iso-scan udeb is searching for an iso on a disk but when one is selected, the script does not try to update the cdrom/codename and cdrom/suite properties in debconf as dit previous versions like 1.31ubuntu1.
The installation later stops on error base-installer/no_codename when installing the base system.

I would think that the debian package has the same problem as the ubuntu package was recently updated from the debian package.

I have incuded a proposed patch for iso-scan.postinst that gets the values and update debconf.
This might not be the best way to fix this but it works for me and the installer can move past installing the base system.

The installer boot image I am using is from
the udeb.list file says that the package version of iso-scan is 1.35ubuntu1
