Hi again,

1. *Workaround for the desktop installer, ubiquity*


which is considered a duplicate of


I tested when re-located to the New York time zone, and still used 
Swedish language ... it works in amd64, and it works in i386.


2. *The network fails in the alternate installer*

I'll be back later about the bug in the alternate installer. You 
commented your test with

"offline in kvm vm I pretty sure I pebkac my virt manager connection. It 
did install in English."

I don't think it is PEBKAC alias "Problem Exists Between Keyboard And 
Chair" because I am affected too, cannot connect my Toshiba laptop, that 
almost always connects willingly (connects with the current desktop iso 
files and older alternate iso files). I think it is a new bug.


I will look into it later today.

Best regards
