bug#35783: Guile-Parted crashes the installer on i686-linux

From: Ludovic Courtès
Subject: bug#35783: Guile-Parted crashes the installer on i686-linux

User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/26.2 (gnu/linux)


On i686-linux, the installer crashes when it reaches the partitioning
page with a null-pointer exception (or sometimes with a plain SIGSEGV),
in the call to ‘partition-disk’ in ‘esp-partition?’.  Screenshots
of two different crashes (null-pointer exception and SIGSEGV) attached.

The null-pointer exception happens when starting from a blank target
image (fresh ‘qemu-img create’), while the other crash happens (IIRC)
when the disk already has a partition table.

Mathieu, any ideas?

This is holding the 1.0.1 release (I actually have all the files ready
for upload after hours of builds :-/).  We’ll have to decide whether to
hold off until we have a fix, or whether to skip i686 altogether, or to
ship an install image where only the manual install may be used.

Thanks in advance!
