Public bug reported:

Intending to explore an unrelated issue with sddm/video-graphics
(https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1895905) I booted the current hirsute
daily on

dell [optiplex] 990 (i7-2600, 16gb, nvidia geforce gt 6600 gt)

 sddm & video issue primarily, using hirsute for comparison)

No "Try Kubuntu" or "Install Kubuntu" dialog appeared, instead I got

"Installation failed - KDialog \n
 The installer encountered an unrecoverable error.
 A desktop session will now be run so that you may
 investigate the problem or try installing again"
