On i686-linux, the installer crashes when it reaches the partitioning
page with a null-pointer exception (or sometimes with a plain SIGSEGV),
in the call to ‘partition-disk’ in ‘esp-partition?’. Screenshots
of two different crashes (null-pointer exception and SIGSEGV) attached.
The null-pointer exception happens when starting from a blank target
image (fresh ‘qemu-img create’), while the other crash happens (IIRC)
when the disk already has a partition table.
Mathieu, any ideas?
This is holding the 1.0.1 release (I actually have all the files ready
for upload after hours of builds :-/). We’ll have to decide whether to
hold off until we have a fix, or whether to skip i686 altogether, or to
ship an install image where only the manual install may be used.
Thanks in advance!
