    Question about the keyboard layout came first; not where the test scenario expected it.

    The squares for choosing between the OS's was not quite clear: the present OS reported as Ubuntu 16.04.04LTS but should be Xubuntu 16.04.04 LTS. The new OS reported as just Xubuntu (no version number)

    The slide show was not entirely in my own language (Dutch).

    Reboot after install did not work: tty stopped with the repeated message: drm: wait_panel_status [i915] ERROR PPS state mismatch

    Starting up after install was very slow: for some time a black screen, without any indication that the machine was booting, before log in.

    After log in for a log time an empty blue-ish desktop with an empty upper black panel.
    After that a working install/laptop.

    Install (auto-resize) testcase should also test that the original system is
    still usable (#1754157)

    In: Ubuntu Manual Tests
    Status: Fix Released

    Bug #1276544 is an old grub report. After booting, the newly-installed Xubuntu 18.04 is only identified as "Ubuntu". Even the existing Xubuntu 16.04.4 is identified as "Ubuntu". Even Windows and Fedora are recognized with appropriate tags.

    Bug #1754157 - we should also verify that the old system still works. Doesn't take long and I did that for this test session.

    Much improved from previous releases. I really like the slider to let me visually adjust both disk partition sizes.
