Bill (franksmcb) ran a couple of installs today using i386 ISO (on a *amd64* box) to try and re-create #1890872 and didn't have the issue.

I likewise did a couple some more qa-test installs (i386 ISO using *amd64* box) and had no issues. (I may do ~two more tomorrow on a different *amd64* box)

Alas on the initial problem box (hp dx6120) I had a window pause again (*it just stopped, no OK button this time repeating*) the window just stuck whilst rest of system continued, no crash files or clues that I found outside of comment #5 on that bug report. Not even the title bar was visible on the window, just the border, which makes me think it's elsewhere in the stack (though just a feeling as I don't understand the stack well enough to correctly judge).

I got the feeling today's was different though, even though [*it felt*] the same (ie. *a clue?*). The install hadn't started, I hadn't answered a single question in ubiquity today so I don't think it was the install itself that failed, but something else in the really old pentium 4 system (or elsewhere in the software stack & not 18.04.5 install related). I can't rule out it's something else my box has issues with in the 18.04.5 system though (*maybe reason to include it, though I'm more don't include it*)

I restarted the installer (same session) & the installed completed perfectly on the hp dx6120,. I've run ramtests on the box, and it was left 7 hours today running the live 18.04.5 system without issue just sitting there, with me waking it's screen up regularly, without issue.

I've provided my current 2c worth; you decide.
10 August 2020; in case my 2c changes tomorrow :)

My end feeling is I'd not mention #1890872 in the release notes.

If you do, I simplified the bug title anyway. I read through the release notes, and they look great :)

FYI: I just had https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/1890872 occur on a Xubuntu 18.04.5 install on the same box (during install-alongside; second install after flawless entire-disk with xubuntu)...

It was the same [hp dx6120] box though, so it hasn't ruled out that box, limits of old pentium 4 coping with code .... only change is it's not just us (Lubuntu).

I left #1890872 out of the notes. I think I have them ready to go and wrote a little about #1890931. Please let me know if you have any final thoughts.

"Ubiquity confirmation window off partially offscreen"

I'd remove the word "off"

Bug 1890931 - Ubiquity confirmation window off partially offscreen - In some circumstances, the partitioning confirmation dialog may be larger than the current screen dimensions. The dialog can be re-positioned and confirmation can be selected to continue the installation.

I'd change to

Bug 1890931 - Ubiquity confirmation window partially offscreen - In some circumstances, the partitioning confirmation dialog may be partially off screen. The dialog can be re-positioned and confirmation can be selected to continue the installation.

I never had it appear LARGER than the screen (if I recall correctly), it was just positioned partially off screen.

I didn't read any further though..

(I'll also provide a link https://notes.lubuntu.me/y1j8joAgTLydNy-jpCei5w?view# so if I need to view it again I don't have to go searching..)

Thanks for the clarification. I have edited the doc.
