Bug Description

Binary package hint: xorg

Booted Lucid Xubuntu 64bit Live environment and started Ubiquity. I chose the OEM Install option from the F4 menu in the boot screen.

Once I get to partitioning I choose manual partitioning and am able to start partitioning. I usually make it as far as creating a blank table, and adding a /boot partition (ext2, 100MB) before X crashes.

This always seems to happen in the same place during the installation (I've recreated this 3 times in a row). I'm installing to a 64bit VirtualBox VM.

More info:

This is seen in Xubuntu 64 using the Daily Build as of 15 March. I've recreated it 4 times now (three running Ubuquity in the live environment and once in the "Install" environment).

Every time, X crashes after I start running Ubiquity. I've run a couple other apps in the environment without touching Ubiquity and so far have not had an X crash...

This is being seen on a VirtualBox VM configured with 1 processor and 1GB ram with a 16GB disk file.

Update: tried again with Xubuntu 64 daily for 16 March and X still crashes once Ubiquity starts. The new log attachments are from today's failure

Thanks for reporting this issue and the extensive testing of OEM for Xubuntu. Unfortunately, I can not reproduce this issue. I installed Xubuntu using lucid-desktop-amd64.iso dated 2010-03-29 in VBox. It installed without problems. Can you please give me a list of steps to take to try to reproduce the issue?
