Hi there!

For the RMLL 2012[1] I set up BabelBox[2] on the Debian Events Box[3]
(installer build 20120508): Besides some minor changes WRT the packages
to be installed (see [4]), the preseed.cfg from the squeeze BabelBox[5]
was working OK.

[2] <http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/BabelBox>
[3] <http://bugs.debian.org/680318>
[4] <http://lists.debian.org/87vcdj8y3j.fsf@gismo.pca.it>
[5] <http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=d-i/babelbox.git;a=blob;f=preseed.cfg;h=f194524681667e8474c5b02610640e669d56cbae;hb=2879ec58c241829072c18308fb1b9603d1694f98>

Before going on, the default BabelBox partitioning is the following:

* /dev/sda1   83 Linux
  /dev/sda2   82 Linux swap / Solaris
 
  The host system, which contains the d-i hd-media images as well as the
  CD-1 or DVD-1 ISO images.

* /dev/sda3   5  Extended
  /dev/sda5 * 83 Linux
  /dev/sda6   82 Linux swap / Solaris

  The demo system, with partition 3 deleted by 00del_partition[6] at the
  beginning of the preseed and then everything is set up by:

    d-i partman-auto/init_automatically_partition select biggest_free
    d-i partman-auto/choose_recipe select atomic
    d-i partman/choose_partition select finish
    d-i partman/confirm boolean true
    d-i partman/confirm_nooverwrite boolean true

* /dev/sda4   83 Linux

  Unused space just to fill up the hard disk, so that formatting for the
  demo system will not take unnecessary long.

[6] <http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=d-i/babelbox.git;a=blob;f=00del_partition;h=0f9a1f4d4b4ab9799ceca86d0f5a92faea9b7528;hb=2879ec58c241829072c18308fb1b9603d1694f98>

While working to adapt BabelBox to the current wheezy d-i (hd-media
images as of 20121107-00:18 and DVD-1 as of 20121105-04:30:14),
partman-basicfilesystems complains that there is no swap partition
*before* partitioning the hard disk, which is a regression.  Switching
to VT2 and ps shows:

If partman-basicfilesystems/no_swap=false is preseeded, then the
installation continues, but no swap is anymore created in the Extended
partition, which is another regression WRT the RMLL 2012 BabelBox (I
have not created a new bug to be sure this is not linked to no_swap).

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
