Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Installing mythbuntu 11.04 from a usb stick using UNetbootin. Gets most of the way though the process and then brings up a crash dialog box asking to file a bug report and attached the syslog and partman.

The process seemed to be up to removing files so tried a reboot and system booted OK right though to the myth UI. Tried to install the recommended nVidia drivers and installed all recommended updates from update manager and rebooted and system hung without reaching either a log in or UI.

The attached syslog and partman are from when the installer crashed though.
