Installer bugfix available (1.1-4)

A fix for installation failure due to having a partition numbered 10 or above is available.

The easiest way to fix is to update the kwheezy-livecd package. This can be done from the Live session (booting from DVD/USB media).

  • Open 'Apper' via Applications Menu -> System > Apper.

  • Click 'Apply' button (bottom left).
