Snapshot 20150605000230777
« on: June 06, 2015, 05:40:14 pm »
Hi,

I tried a fresh install of this snap but there seems to be a race condition during the install process.

Once the Kubuntu install hits "copying files 12%"  and you are still filling out the installation forms, username/password/etc that's it.  You are hosed.

I tried 5 times to get thru the install setup and could not make it to the end before hitting 12%.

The setup screens just won't accept input or you are presented with a blanl screen with continue.

When it goes thru the installation process the system will start Kubuntu and then crash and loop back to the GRUB menu.

I tried wget installs on Thursday and Friday but continue to get no dcerouter prompt on sudo login and can't find 192.168.80.1 server on webadmin.

Chees.

What we need is for someone to step up and work on the dvd installer scripts.  It's a big job but no one currently has the time.  If you can figure out what the issue/error is specifically then I can push specific fixes.  Otherwise it *works for me* here.

O.K.

So during start up the Nviidia driver is installed then I receive...

Nvidia driver installation requires a reboot.
Please stand by while your system is rebooted.

Then it's back to the GRUB menu.

I'll poke around some more.


Cheers

Sounds like it's not identifying the nvidia driver as already installed after it reboots.

I'm wondering if it's creating the xorg.conf file during the driver install or not.  The system checks the xorg.conf for the proper driver, if it's not there it installs it and sets the proper value in xorg.conf.  One of those things appears to not be happening.

Hi,

It doesn't find xorg and installs the nvidia.conf.

Cheers.

Hi,

One of the last lines after installing the nvidia driver before the system reboots is

unable to locate package nvidia-current.

I wonder why it cannot find the package.  It *should* be on the dvd, and you should have network to grab it from online if it's not there.

Well, I can now confirm this.  I moved all my hardware around to free up an nvidia system and I see the same issue.  I'll see what more I can figure out or not.  Any input you can provide would be helpful.

Thanks!

Hi,

FYI the June 14 201506014070730801 snap does the same.

Cheers.

BTW,

I'm using a GT520 card that is using the GF119 module.

I hope we are each using different cards and modules.


Cheers.

I see an issue on the 1404 dvds where the nvidia-current driver is not properly installed.  However I cannot find any issues with the 1204 install dvds, they seem to work here so far.  I'll do some more tests as time permits and update the 1404 dvd soon.

Thanks so much for testing!

Hi,

Just for grins I tried grub commands to boot the system as single user or non-GUI initialization, but, single user failed completely while init 3 still tried to run AVWizard with nvidia-current reboot.

On my system...

grub>set root=(hd0,msdos1)
grub>linux /vmlinuz ro root=UUID=blah-blah-blah-blah-blah 1 (or 3)
grub>initrd /initrd.img
grub>boot

Cheers.
