Re: setup hangs during postinstall
I have no idea if this is useful to those debugging this. If no, I
apologise for the post.
On windows, my user name is 'Cliff Stanford' with the space. I was
seeing these hangs until I put in a symlink for my home directory and
added a line to /etc/passwd with a user of "cliff" rather than "Cliff
Stanford" pointing to "/home/cliff" rather than "/home/Cliff Stanford".
I'm not saying the change made the problem go away, just that it went
away and around the same time as I made the change.
