So you installed the Live CD installer on a running Feisty system? I'm not sure that's supported :)

Anyway, the crash seems to result from nfsresize --info trying to analyse an NTFS partition that has already been mounted. Do you get the same problem running a Live CD on that system?

ntfsresize v1.13.1 (libntfs 9:0:0)
ntfsresize: ERROR: Device '/dev/sda1' is mounted read-write. You must 'umount' it first.
partman: Error running 'ntfsresize --info'

status: Unconfirmed → Confirmed

I don't think so; this looks more like a bad interaction between the new partitioner code and autopartitioning to me.

Should I test it with an unmounted NTFS partition?

No, it's OK - I doubt it matters much anyway. I've made an attempt to fix this, but I need to test it somehow.

You can send me maybe the .deb or a patch so I can install/apply it and see if it still occurs.

Let me know if I can be of any help

ubiquity (1.3.21) feisty; urgency=low

  * New partitioner:
    - Try harder not to interfere with autopartitioning (LP: #84597).
    - Ignore parted exceptions presented with priority medium or below.
