Thanks.  I'm about to look at the Desktop PPC image which has had a red
bug.  A work-around is to purge the package ubiquity-slideshow-lubuntu
from the live session.  This package is not essential to the
installation process yet causes the installation to fail rather
catastrophically (after the disk is erased).  Someone did a drive-by on
Launchpad and killed the possibility of the package getting fixed by
changing the priority from Critical to High.  However, it still prevents
installation, since December or so.

As a work-around, can we get the package ubiquity-slideshow-lubuntu
removed from the "Lubuntu Desktop powerpc" image for the release?



I support your suggestion

- for the work-around to remove the slideshow from Lubuntu Desktop powerpc

- for the efforts to squash the bug itself.

Best regards

Solved.  I guess I wrote too soon.

It's not mentioned in Launchpad, that I can find, bu I just tested the latest Desktop PPC image and the slideshow has been removed and now the installation progresses smoothly through to completion!!
