Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Installing Edubuntu 10.10 from amd64 live dvd via memory stick, while running unattended gave the "Installer crashed" message. I closed the installer to provide GNOME screen, and the following /var/log/syslofg and /var/log/partman logs were copied before shutting down.

Thanks for any help with completing this installation,
