I think this is clear now. > And I still got prompted five times about dictionaries. However, there is another thing above that puzzles me, $ apt-cache show ifrench ... Conflicts: ifrench-gut $ apt-cache show ifrench-gut ... Conflicts: ifrench How do you manage to install both at the same time? More things, I remember to have been prompted when apt-utils was not installed and so, no pre-configuration was possible or, when due to space limitation in the /var partition some sort of debconf database corruption happened. So, does the problem appear at the pre-configure or at the postinst stage? Do other questions appear at the pre-configure stage? Also, as soon as you get this problem, and before the apt cache is cleaned, please check /var partition available size. > This problem will undoubtfully lead to very bad reviews of D-I by > French users if not solved. I wish I could reproduce it. I will try a new qemu run with French defaults and see what happens. Not sure it that will be possible this week, and will not be with the businesscard, unless I learn how making qemu use the network. -- Agustin -- To UNSUBSCRIBE, email to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with a subject of "unsubscribe".
