Bug Description


Not sure if I should report it against Ubiquity or Partman, so as I am using it in the desktop live, I assume that would be Ubiquity. If I mistake feel free to move it elsewhere.

I continue after Bug 1325779 and Bug 1325783, now I am in the partitioning stage "something else", otherwise named "advanced partitioning".

Reminder, here is my lshw output:

I want to choose /dev/sda2 where there is an older Lubuntu, and when I select it and hit the "Change" button, then I want to format it to btrfs, or to ext4 (I tried both in two live sessions in a row), I get a new windowed message stating : "Before choosing the new size partition, the other modifications have to be applied to the hard drive - it is not possible to cancel this operation - please acknowledge the change of size can last a long time" (freely translated to English from French, so it might be a bit approximate compared to the original message).

But what IS that? I have not performed ANY other operation prior, so there aren't any OTHER modifications to be done! (bummer!).

So I now will just hit "Continue" and tell you what happens next…
next, it seems according to the ui that the new partition format has been acknowledged so I hit the next button "Install now"… and it now offers to choose the timezone, so it might have worked?

I am now at the keyboard layout choice, after I chose my timezone.

In the former test, with btrfs, it didn't work, at that stage I was getting an error message stating the partition could not have been written to disk. So maybe it errors only on the Btrfs choice?

I am attaching the partman log as I have it now, at that stage.
