Not really. Sort of the opposite actually. There was talk of dropping packagechooser altogether but there are folks using it so it stays. Most distros are using NetInstall.

In T58#4060, @wxl wrote:

When I originally wrote this, I really hadn't looked into the mechanisms employed in the Ubuntu minimal install. I'm not sure why I'm shocked to find this, but it looks like it's a simple matter of package removal.

That said, assuming packagechooser is in good shape (most of the bugs mentioned seem resolved), I think all we need for the minimal install is removal. The thing I don't understand is how packagechooser (which seems to simply set global variables) and packages (which actually does the installing/removing of packages) work together.

I think it's wise to document it somewhere and Discourse is as good as any. However, I think my little solution needs a more organized format if we were to use for the purposes of documentation. I guess I can probably edit that post and we can call it good.

One comment, though: I do think this is something that should be able to be done in situ. Do you have good reason to think otherwise @kc2bez ?

kc2bez added a comment to T181: GID/UID mismatch for users..

This should be taken care of on the installer side of things now. The only question that remains is what do we do about existing installs? I think @wxl 's fix is probably sufficient for the number of support cases this is likely to have. It is a bit of an edge case to have. You would need to be mounting files from an install. Maybe we just backpocket that as documentation and point folks towards it if/when they bump into it?

kc2bez closed T22: Bring those swaps back as Resolved.

The installer creates a swapfile (512M) (initially chosen selection) on the automatic erase disk option. No swap is also an option that is available. This has been released to Hirsute for Lubuntu. All tests so far have been positive.

Thanks @teward for your assistance with CI. We may have some further sysadmin things dealing with this task once we figure out what we want to do with this.
I want to go on the record and say this is fantastic @apt-ghetto! Very nice work.
One minor thing, in the task you mentioned looking at the output and tweaking the CSS. I think we need to poke at the TOC if possible. I am not sure what our options are there but it gets all bunched up and the sub-chapters are not visible in the Table.
We still have some TODO's left, I will edit the task so those items are check boxes indicating where we stand with the task.

This is available in the latest Calamares. I have tested it from unstable/ci. Our partition module will need to change. Currently there is no option to set the size and you get a 512M swap. Far better than no swap though. @Eickmeyer Studio may want to think about making a change too. I have marked the task for 21.04

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