[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: debian-edu-install
Severity: important
Version: 74148

The GNOME desktop is not installable any more. Tried two different methods:

1. DVD installation

  DVD from squeeze-test
  use kernel pararmeter desktop=gnome on d-i boot
  result:
    - no GNOME related packages get installed
    . no GDM is started on system boot, neither is there a KDM

  the package education-desktop-gnome is furthermore missing on the APT repos
  on the DVD

  then: run apt-get update

  now: when installing the education-desktop-gnome, all packages would be
       installed (from squeeze, not squeeze-test, though)


2. NETINST CD installation

  NETINST CD from squeeze-test
  use kernel parameter desktop=gnome on d-i boot
  result:
    - a KDE/KDM workstation gets installed


Greets,
Mike

Also desktop=lxde fails, no education-desktop-lxde on the squeeze-test DVD.

I installed squeeze-test using a netinst CD with desktop=gnome
yesterday, and got a Gnome desktop.  How did you test?  Can you test
again and see if the problem still exist?

I've added notes to the manual saying that installing gnome or lxde from the

I forgot to give information on what happens when installing from DVD  
with option desktop=gnome. This has changed contrary to what I have  
written above.

On first boot I get a system with not X-login at all. I only have the  
text login consoles.

Greets,
Mike

Hi Petter,

tried this one again...

Installation with kernel option desktop=gnome works (again?) for  
CD-NETINST, but not for DVD.

With the DVD installation the package gdm is missing on the DVD. After  
I have post-d-i installed gdm I can log on to the system and find a  
GNOME desktop after login.

However, this GNOME desktop seems to be incomplete due to missing  
packages on the DVD, at least one I found immediately: gnome-terminal.

Greets,
Mike

As I just realized: also network-manager was missing after the DVD  
install with desktop=gnome...

and it was also missing when installed from CD-NETINST...

Note: NetworkManager is needed to update the system's hostname!!!

Hi Mike,

installing Gnome or LXDE from the DVD is not supported. Use the CD or PXE.

This sound like some related package is missing from the gnome package
list.  Check svn, debian/edu/tasks/.  But lack of network-manager seem
to be unrelated to a completely broken gnome desktop, and thus deserve a
separate bug report. :)

(or just fix it in the debian-edu package if you figure out how to fix
it. :)

Yes, there is simply not enough room on the DVD to fit both KDE and
Gnome.  This will probably remain so until we start using dual-layer DVD
images or Blueray. :)

But the remaining issues sound more like a problem with the
education-desktop-gnome task list, so I reassign it to that package.
