Bug Description

Binary package hint: oem-config

Installing UNR candidate final image for karmic, and I'm stuck in an endless loop with oem-config-firstboot. I go through the user setup and all, then it dumps me right back in at the beginning with language selection.

current version installed of oem-config is 2.0.4

I am seeing this as well on the ubuntu-alternate image. It happens when choosing "Require my password to log in and unencrypt my home directory". When not using home directory encryption I do not see this issue.

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Do not fail if linux-generic-pae is not in the package cache.
    Thanks Colin Watson (LP: #461377).
  * Really don't run oem-config again. Thanks Colin Watson
    (LP: #461546).
  * Fix broken reference in the apport hook (LP: #461757).
  * Add noninteractive pages for user-setup and migrationassistant as
    well.
  * Automatic update of included source packages: user-setup
    1.27ubuntu11.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Run partman in the noninteractive frontend (otherwise we try to install
    to the live CD root!).
  * Explicitly print noninteractive output to the console (as the Python
    debconf module redirects sys.stdout to sys.stderr which ends up in
    /var/log/installer/debug).
