I get this on i386 and amd64 desktop ISOs. Installing from USB and CD. alternate CDs are not affected.

However bambee has reported two successful amd64 desktop installs.

I'm doing "use full disk" partition option

I also installed on i386 but using a virtual machine (virtualbox with "use full disk"). It works just fine here.
Can I provide additionnal informations ?

This only happens if you don't have a connection as far as I can see.

It gets stuck for me both with and without internet connection on real hardware.

I can't reproduce it here with Kubuntu AMD64 and the Ubiquity based installer.
The logs doesn't contains the lines mentioned above.

I did an i386 install (alpha-3 candidates) on my Dell Mini 10 from usb-creator generated USB stick, with English, no network, and "use entire disk". Worked fine, and no "Media" in syslog.

Apparently python-apt has this "Media change" string, in AcquireProgress.media_change().

Jonathan Riddell (jr) wrote :

ln -s /cdrom /media/cdrom before running ubiquity fixes this, as discussed on IRC

Martin Pitt (pitti) wrote :

Jonathan confirms that this is also due to the changed /cdrom -> /media/cdrom mount point, duplicating.
