I'm using the Ubuntu live CD to install Ubuntu 14.10.

I noticed one of the last things it does is uninstalls packages. E.g., I see "Uninstalling gparted..." and more in the status bar.

Is there any way I can tell the installer DON'T do this uninstall step?

  • What? The Un-installer is actually un-installing packages? Maybe a screenshot/paste of what's running and what's happening could clear this up... – Xen2050 Jan 22 '15 at 3:55

    @Xen2050 at the end of installation, packages that are useful for installation but not needed for the installed OS are removed, including GParted, ubiquity itself, some language packs and so on. – muru Jan 22 '15 at 5:13
  • Must be typo in the subject, "uninstaller uninstalls", I'll edit to "Installer" – Xen2050 Jan 22 '15 at 6:29
  • Yep, thanks, sorry :) Wrote that late at night from a phone :) – Jay Sullivan Jan 22 '15 at 22:37
  • @Muru: Could you please convert that to an answer so that schmucks like me who go around hunting for unanswered questions don't have to look at this one any more. ;-) (And I'll upvote if you drop me a note and it's a good one too!) – Fabby Jan 23 '15 at 17:31
