Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

While installing Karmic UNR alpha3, I got a dialog that popped up wanting me to authenticate so that it could mount the existing drive on this system. This happened when I got to the "prepare disk space" step. This is confusing since iirc, the password is blank for the install cd's, but doubly confusing since we probably don't really want to mount it and pop up a nautilus window on top of ubiquity at this point.

clicking cancel seems to make it go away, but it tries again after the "who are you?" step in the install. It does it a third time after starting the install.

I had the same problem plus it did not install grub correctly on my macbook pro. I do not get a menu to boot into UNR.

It's likely UNR specific; I see that netbook-launcher has some hooks to listen to volume added/changed signals and will try to mount anything.

When it's built (just pushed it), could someone please try installing the netbook-launcher 1.6.21-0ubuntu3~unr1 package from the ~ubuntu-unr PPA before launching the install?
