Subject: Offline server install fails juggling CDs
Date: Thu, 4 Feb 2021 23:54:50 +1100
The installation case using server+cd2+cd3+cd3 has problems with
installing a desktop environment.
The initial tasksel menu offers the option of selecting Desktop
Environment and desktop system, but eventually fails while trying to
complete the installation.
An installation of just server software, i.e. only packages available
on thes sevrer iso succeeds. But the attempt on reboot to install
task-xfce-desktop fails after installing cd2 packages, then cd4
packages; but it fails asking for cd3 for its packages.
If that failure is followed by "apt-get -f install" the cd3 packages
will be asked for and installed, and then the task-xfce-desktop
installation completes successfully.
Severity set to 'wishlist' from 'normal'
