I had the same experience, in option "manual partitioning".
I updated
Code: [Select]
perl calamares apt dpkg. However I am not sure, whether such an update takes effect at once, so without rebooting, which is no option on a running live-cd.

I will be in irc tonight, may be I can test and provide logs from that machine, when you tell me what you guys want. I think, I can extract them by an usb stick over to my first machine in order to bring it to irc.

There is a problem here, the problem is me

This is the KDE release iso,,

siduction-17.1.0-patience-kde-amd64-201703051755.iso

this, I have no problems with, all works as it should

Ignore my post above, those are new builds, not for release :(

Calamares probably needs a rebuild due to many changes in the last few months. The version on the release images works fine.

Is there a version which supports LVM yet?

You need to create the LVM Volume beforehand, then it should work. Not tested it myself though.

i guess there are no plans to implement lvm2 in the next future - at least i don't know nothing about.
so installing with calamares to a normal partition and transfer to lvm should work
