Installer crash. Cannot install F8 - KDE
Last modified: 2008-06-03 20:16:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Cannot install F8 from KDE Live cd
Every time I try to install.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Go ahead with default settings
The new device mounted box pops-up, and this appears to crash the installer
giving out a bug report:
Additional info: I am running a Dual core system if that makes any difference
Created attachment 253821 [details]
I hit cancel to the new device popup a couple times (I have several disks).
Install looked like it finished copying the image to the hard drive, but after
rebooting, my computer simply displayed "GRUB "
Got it to work by setting selinux to permissive mode before installing.
I also hit cancel, but it crashed at exatly the same time, if not before, on
reboot, I had a grub 24(I think) error. Installing from F8 test 3 then updating
worked, but it was a very messy way to do it.
Greg -- your traceback looks entirely different. Please file it separately so
that it can be tracked.
Tim -- what did you previously have on your disks?

> Tim -- what did you previously have on your disks?
I had a fully working and booting Kubuntu 7.10 install.
What was on /dev/sda2? Can you see what's mounted when the installer starts?
No, it wasnt mounted at the time. On /dev/sda2 was a kubuntu install, afterwards
all that was there was Lost and Found directory, empty.
Did you resolved the problem and were you able to install F8?
Were you able to install F8? And have you run into the same problem with F9?
Sorry I had forgotten about this.
In the end I installed a Beta and upgraded it to the latest release, I did not
manage to get it to work.
I have not tried F9, I've gone back to Kubuntu for the time being, I noticed
nothing wrong when I installed it on a VirtualBox however.
Not sure what the error was in the end then :s
