Summary0007717: Kali 2022.2 Installer can't partition disk.
DescriptionFollowing the installer instrucions resulted in an error from partman.
Apparently, the disk was mounted.
To solve the issue, I had to use a shell (CTRL+L_ALT+F2/F3) and manually unmount the device.
I have tested it on a single machine, trying guided full disk partitioning, normal/with lvm/with encrypted lvm.
The machine is x86_64, and I have tried using the x32 installer/x64 installer/x64 netinstaller/x32 live isos.
Additional InformationThe attached log is the result from a search for 'partman' in syslog.
