Dunno if it will help with your X issue, but the live CD should avoid
the LVM delay issue. One thing I forgot in the previous reply was that
the LVM issue should only be present with the "alternate" install disk
(there's no separate server install CD for Feisty, is there?).
To fix that one, I'd have to travel all the way back to the early eighties
and convince the BSD design team to improve the diagnostics abilities of
the Unix kernel in general, and of select(2) in particular. And while I
could certainly do that, I'm worried of the consequences - the BSD vs.
System V split might never have happened, Unix would have ruled the world,
we'd all be programming in awk++, and Bill Gates would be an obscure
patent lawyer that no one had heard of. -- Guido van Rossum
