oem-config sudden exit

Bug #153336 reported by Ian Jackson on 2007-10-16

Bug Description

Binary package hint: oem-config

I just did an install of 20071016.1 gutsy d-i i386 in OEM mode (with auto resize). I installed in French (with UK keyboard and London timezone).

I made only one change in the oem boot: to use Synaptic to install libadns1-bin.

I then ran the "prepare for shipping" program. On the reboot when I got the prompts I asked for Dutch as a language, London timezone, UK keyboard (which was sensibly the default), but after entering the new user details (step 1 of 4) the preparer crashed - the X server died and I was presented with a gdm.

This gdm session did allow me to log in as the created user.

I'm going to try this again with no language switching, with Erase Disk, and without making any changes during the OEM boot.

AFAICT from my retest there are two bugs here:

 * The "Step 1 of 4" counter does not advance
 " There is no confirmation, after completing the final screen, that everything is OK. Instead the X server just quits and presents the user with a login prompt. This is quite jarring.
