View Full Version : [ubuntu] Live DVD install stuck at time / region setup

June 7th, 2011, 12:04 PM

When performing a clean install of natty from Live DVD the screen freezes at the time /region setting (i.e. the "Where are you?" screen).

Is there any way to change which server the system performs it's look up to at install time?

Before starting another install I tried the following:

1. #sudo apt-get install ntp
2. #sudo gedit /etc/ntp.conf

<created a new server entry - commenting out all the others>

3. install from live DVD again but still hangs...


a) If I just leave it, after a few (5?) minutes the install continues and the system time remains at New York time.

b) I notice there is another package ntpdate installed by default - is this what the install program is using?

typing "#sudo ntpdate" displays:

<the time> ntpdate[2533]: no servers can be used, exiting

Thanks for any suggestions,
