Comments/Problems:

After rebooting the keymap I selected was not retained.
After rebooting the hostname for the machine was not retained, and localhost
was used instead.

Apart from that it has been a wonderful experience, and I had no problems at 
all. I was following the published HOWTO. Since the bug in the partitioning 
(209286) is  solved from partitioner 0.07, maybe the paragraph which warned 
not to use it can be removed from the above document (I actually used the 
partitioner, since, after having a look at the bug it was closed, and I had 
the right version of partitioner in the cd)

I also tried to use autopartkit, and it didn't work. Maybe this depends on 
the fact that I tried it after having actually partitioned in the "classical 
way" (in fact I only wanted to look at it and see what it proposed). 
Ok, I had mounted partitions and the swap activated, but maybe autopartkit 
could umount them, before doing anything (if this is the problem). After all
I allowed it to destroy my data, didn't I? ;) Anyway: using the automatic
partitioner gave some errors, and I don't know if it's because I already had 
partition table or not...

Thanks for all, btw, I think the system is very nice! :)

Guido

It is correct that autopartkit will fail if the partitions are already
mounted.  There is currently no code to detect and umount when this
happen.

Subject: autopartkit has been removed from Debian, closing #212442
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2008 01:30:15 +0100
Version: 1.30+rm

The autopartkit package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/473148 . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
