    Install freezes

    My 10.04 install freezes at about 95%, during running dpkg. I have tried again, always freezes at same point.
    Live CD version runs fine.
    Is there a 'command line' install that might help me determine which pkg is causing the problem.
    I had 9.10 running on the system for the last six months with no problems.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    You could try the alternate (text-based) installer as a first step.

    If that does not work: A minimal Ubuntu lets you install all packages by hand. Start by installing the core system with this CD

    and afterwards you add packages by hand, like for example

    When the system is running, you can use Synaptic like always.
