[Bug 1038522] Re: manual partitioning in installer crashes

I found the crash could be avoided if I reboot between creating the
partitions (using sudo fdisk) and using the installer.   That is, first
boot off the CD and create the partitions (including write, of course),
then reboot (boot again off the CD) and use the installer.  Voila!  No
crash.

Title:
  manual partitioning in installer crashes

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  when choosing manual partitioning, installer crashes when setting mount points. after many attempts where the installer just disapeared, I got:
  Exception in KDE frontend (invoking crash handler):

  rather frustrating - I can set up 2 or 3 partitions before it crashes. I have 2 disks, sda and sdb and it doesn't reliably crash on any particular partition or disk. My Machine is currently a dual-boot Kubuntu 10.04 / Win 7 Ultimate. I wanted a complete fresh start for 12.04 so I was going to format the linux partitions

  sda1 bootable, NTFS
  sda2  Extended
  sda5  ext4  /home
  sda6 ext4  /var

  sdb1 NTFS
  sdb2 bootable ext4 /boot
  sdb3 Extended
  sdb5 ext4   /
