Installation hang on second step. Please help))
« on: October 25, 2011, 09:31:36 pm »
I have running installation of 710.
Hardware:
ASUS M268-VM mobo with NVIDIA 7050 onboard
4 GB RAM
Phenom 9800 4-core CPU

I got new HDD for fresh install of 810. Install goes through on the first step(installing from DVD). I got Kubuntu up and running. LinuxMCE installer runs fine as well. When it reboots and goes through AVwizard there is no audio(( But after that screen goes grey starts flashing "installing: xxxxxx" and finally hangs for good at "installing: firefox". On reboot I stuck at console login prompt, no X.

Any advice??

I have also had this issue. Tried different versions of DVD install. The Final version should work, but instead it stalls out during Firefox install (or so it seems.) I have had a running install on the same hardware. I have also tried install in VM with same outcome. Is there some information we can gather for troubleshooting?

I have moved past the 8.10 to 10.04 and I am able to install completely. But as this is in Development I do not want to make it my main setup.

So it seems like a bug in 810 final iso?! I'll try to install it into VM tonight.

my installation hang  on   installing  firefox

in /var/log/pluto/launchmanager.progress.log

have some lines  with fail to download   some packages

and i found  on my sources.list on last line  a lucid repository

i think that install  is doing  a  apt-get dist-upgrade on some point

radvd is also affecting 10.04 installs, may be an upstream issue.

Does this require only using a future snapshot or is the fix on eg. the server side? (if that makes sense) Basically, when next build is out can we use the Final snapshot (that most of us have burned) or do we need the latest snapshot?

And thanks for the fix, quite a relief. I thought sometimes was wrong with my hardware ^^

As far as I can tell, this remains unfixed.  Can anyone confirm this is working with the final iso as of today?
