Remove /usr as option from d-i partitioning
Last modified: 2020-07-04 08:53:18 CEST
We should consider to also remove /usr from the partitionig options in the debian installer.
Currently it's possbile to configure a custom partitioning with a separate /usr. The installation will then fail at a later point - or at least the system won't boot after installation.
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #43937 +++
systemd does not start a system with a separate /usr/ - see URL.
This leads to all kinds of services failing.

All auto-partition schema do not include a separate /usr.
If you're partitioning the disk *manually*, you get all the rope to kill yourself. Don't do this if you don't know what you're doing.

User feedback at Ticket#2017052021000132. The installer should not offer the option for a separate /usr and it should take care that it cannot be set manually.
