Bug Description

Installing Studio in a VM for Alpha 1 ISO testing...

I get as far as the package selection, where pkgsel fails. (See attached screenshot, FWIW). The problem appears to be one of the package groups.

Initially, I selected all four (2/3d graphics, audio suite, audio plugins, video suite) and got the pkgsel failure every time I tried. Eventually, I de-selected everything but 2/3d graphics and the install proceeded.

More information... on subsequent tests, it appears that the package groups that fail are the audio and video suites. The 2d/3d and audio codecs packages install just fine either separately or together, while the audio and video suites fail every time they are selected.

I've tried 5 installs choosing each package option individually... the results are:

Chose all four: FAIL
Chose only 2d/3d graphics: PASS
Chose only Audio Suite: FAIL
Chose only Audio Codecs: PASS
Chose only Video Suite: FAIL
Chose both Audio and Video Suites: FAIL
Chose both 2d/3d GFX and Audio Codecs: PASS

summary: - [Maverick A1] One (or more) of the package options fails duiring d-i
- install
+ [Maverick A1] Audio and Video suite package options cause pkgsel failure
+ during d-i install
