Hi guys,

I know this is in reply to a problem month old, but I was just poking
around the archive and I found this. I came across a similar problem.

> After doing a hundreds of installations i found most of the d-i options but 
> still can't get the installer to use myubuntu-standard. It continues using 
> ubuntu-standard regardless what i am telling. I tried to set:
> tasksel tasksel/first multiselect myubuntu-standard
> tasksel tasksel/tasks multiselect myubuntu-standard
> d-i     pkgsel/install-pattern  string ~t^myubuntu-standard$

I'm not using tasks, I'm just adding a whole bunch of debs. I do it by
changinf the pkgsel/install-pattern to have all the debs:
d-i pkgsel/install-pattern string
etc etc
Then adding this line:
d-i pkgsel/include string debname1 debname2

The documentation
(https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallCDCustomization) says that you
only need to change the install-pattern line.

Hope that helps
