    Re: xubuntu does not run installer

    Yes, filing a bug report here would be great: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...quity/+filebug

    Please read this page about how to upload a log file: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingUbiquity/AttachingLogs

    It would also be useful to see output from the command line. Type 'sudo ubiqity' in a terminal yo get that. Thanks!

    Hi Henrik.

    You wanted to say ubiquity instead of ubiqity, didn't you?

    Re: xubuntu does not run installer

    I just tried my burnt alternat-installer cd and it just crashed on me giving me a blinking cursor but no result when entering commands, Maybe my hardware is not that greatly supported yet.. i'm on an old p3 666 256mb/133Mhz GfFX5200.. Also, whenever having tried either of the two cds, when falling back on my regular system, my internet (or network card) is misconfigured

    Re: xubuntu does not run installer

    ignore me, i'm going to retry and wait and see

    The second alpha build (also known as "Herd CD") of Ubuntu 7.04 started to appear on Ubuntu mirrors last week and the release was formally announced today: "Herd 2 released. The primary focus during the time from Herd 1 has been the re-merging of changes from Debian and inclusion of new versions of applications. Notably, we have upgraded the kernel to 2.6.20. This is an early set of images, so you can expect some bugs. Among these are the following: the alternate i386 install CD takes a very long time (about five minutes) to do hardware detection on some machines; the desktop installer sometimes mounts the newly partitioned hard drive and then fails."

    HOW TO FIX THIS BUG

    it's pretty easy! I figured it out when I had the same bug installing the DVD of ubuntu feisty-2. Try this in a terminal ('alt + f2' then 'gnome-terminal')
    Code:
    sudo cp /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/debconf.py usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/
    The only problem is that the python language can't find the library debconf, and it's coz it's in a different directory, the version of the python language used by the installer is 2.5 and the library is in the 2.4 folder (I don't undestand why ubuntu has the 2 versions of python installed, but...)

    did it help?

    I think it has been resolved, so you should just download a new daily build.
