Endless reboot with the newest snapshot after install
« on: January 05, 2011, 08:10:16 pm »
I installed according to http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_0810

with one exception: I took the kde install from the dvd

I have tried:
1) Install pure from dvd and update accordingly + build MD before reboot , I didn't edit the sources.list and got lots of 404 errors..

2) Install kde from dvd (5'th of jan snapshot version) edit sources.list to resolve packages better, and do internet installation according to webpage above + reboot ( no MD build this time)

RESULT:
When kde starts I get a reeboot just at the end of the progressbar
I also saw some message about "..couldnt'.. .. proceeding with Normal boot."

I have had a working 810 installation before with an earlier version, think it was the first beta or so.

Anyone else had this issue?

I 've had the same reboot problem. while booting it tries to install new graphic driver (in my case Nvidia-glx-260) using apt-get install but it cant. In /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh comment out reboot.

I tried it that wasnt the problem though in the file it had a check that it only reebots if install successfull ( I tried commenting out reboot but that didnt help) .. i seen there has been some never shapshots one from 8th of jan so Ill try that one , if it doesn't work Ill try to go with the december issues :)

Thanks!

Have a look at this trac ticket. It was related to the problem I had earlier today.

http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/926

Changing the "INSTALLED" variable from "1" to "0" worked.

After a core crash I performed a new core install today using the net script. Now building up a new MD but I got caught up in the same situation. MD keeps on rebooting and I never reach the AV Wizard  :(

Already changed "INSTALLED" to "0" but that made no change.
I now put the 23579 nvidia-install.sh into the MD and see if that makes any change, will let u know

(btw its a nvidia 6150)

Changeset 23588 solved the problem and AVWizard kicked in ;-)

I've tried numerous images including last december one. I've also tried the latest 3.2 gb one with the old repositories mentioned by attunezero. see the 'end of support breaks installer' thread in installation issues. I once succeeded to get an avwizard using the 3.2 gb latest disk but I did a mistake  (removed an md image and it wouldnt boot anymore) so I had to reinstall, but then I got the same problem again.

Process of endless reboot I have.
Kde boots with progress bar then screen goes into black mode with white text

then kde boot progress comes up again and goes into black mode with white text and says:
"Couldn't find resume image, doing normal boot".  And then I THINK it says: "couldn't connect to mysql database."

Any guesses? I didn't see any change with nvidia 'reboot' outcomments

Cheers. /Per

go to the file they talk about in the trac ticket and where there is the case statement for nvidia 260 remove everything but the echo statement and the return statement. change the echo from 260 to 195

that worked for me

Sorry about this bug, fellas.. Hopefully the next round of snapshots should have this bug eliminated.

Have a look here...

http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=11271.msg77760#msg77760

Boot to recovery console. When booting just before Kubuntu starts booting "Press escape for boot menu" ( If I recall correctly)
the grub boot laoder will appear. Choose "recovery console" (If I recall correctly, not infront of my core ATM)

Ive successfully installed the 1 nov image according to this thread and also the thread about the 'end of life breaks installer' , however I cannot successfully initiate the MD into going into AV wizard. Same reboot problem, I've changed the /usr/pluto/diskless/29/usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh

I beleive the problem is that I did a Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh build before I did the change to the file that made me able to start the AV wizard on the core/hybrid.

So .. any ideas? I will try to do the Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh again.. and somehow rebuild the no 29 MD (dont know how yet though)

Cheers and good luck to you all.
