View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu Alternate Installer Proxy Mirror Issue

October 12th, 2011, 12:25 PM

I just got myself a new computer ( i5 2500k, 8 GB RAM, NVIDIA GT 240, Gigabyte z68)

I tried installing Ubuntu 10.10 on it but after the initial splash screen i got a grey unresponsive screen- I assume the Ubuntu installer has issues with my hardware.

I could get Debian installed but was not too happy.

I finally got to know about the Ubuntu Alternate install which is similar to the debian installer( debian installed nice and smooth on my machine) and downloaded it, used unetbootin and booted into it. Finally I reached a point where it wants to download installer components:

Can't i have a totally offline install?

If i cant: the how to i specify my proxy to the installer as it keeps saying bad internet connection each time- It wants the proxy in the standard form of "http://[[user..../"
My proxy address is with a port of 8080 and no usernane and password.

Thanks in Advance
