that would be with the Calamares Installer?
I Hate it!
also it mounts all system swap partitions,
nor does it read or write partition labels.
I don't understand how to fix the Sudo issue, I can't even log in as root.
this something that Linux Mint also does, I forget how to fix it.
on my other machines I reinstalled with the Debian Installer (not the
live session) and get a "normal" configuration, and no need to edit
fstab, or fixup the labels afterward.
the Calamares Installer is a real thorn in my side... end of rant ;-)

is Debian 10 now using sudo to allow users to carry out admin tasks.
Is this how it is meant to do things, or have I missed a step somewhere ?
I can't take a screenshot of the related installer screen as that
facility has been removed :(
New installer does look very nice though, great work.
