Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

I was installing in German using ubiquity from the i386 20070412 livecd. During final stages of the installation, it told me it was installing the language pack but this took an unreasonably long time with no change to the UI. I'm afraid I don't have a screenshot but if I remember correctly there was no "subsidiary" progress text. There was no indication of any progress at all.

I suspect that the delay was during the actual download but if there is any Launchpad transaction involved then the delay may have been due to the LP operational difficulties today.

I'm now doing an install in French and I see
  Telechargement des pachets linguistiques (4:42 ...)
with a clock counting down.

This is good (although it makes a mockery of the progress bar) and I'm
pretty sure not what I saw in my earlier German install. LP is
working a lot better now. So if there's an LP query at the start of
langpack setup then I think this bug was due to LP operational
difficulties.

If you want any information from the German install in question (eg,
installer logs) please let me know because I'll probably wipe it
soon ...
