I'm finding the Breezy installer is crashing at the disk-partitioning
This is what the syslog looks like just before the installer restarts:
At first, I thought I might have a corrupted install CD. The md5sum is
indeed wrong when I checked it on this laptop.
So I burned a new, net-install only CD. I think a net-install downloads
the udebs for disk partitioning from the ubuntu mirror. (Thereby
avoiding having to get this software from a corrupt CD.) However, the
installer still crashes at the disk-partitioning stage.
For what it's worth, as the bootloader help screens suggest, I've tried
booting with the "nolapic" and "noapic" kernel options, though I don't
really know what they do.
Any tips? I guess finding out what's actually broken would be a good
