Using SDC and then plugging one of my reliable units with the USB, all goes well right up to the point when Ubiquity goes on it's screen-roll. Does not detect hardware, does not even attempt to install anything. No dialog status bar on the bottom, underneath the carousel.

I have seen the same thing for the last 3 days trying to use USB to install. How do we file a bug against this?

Thanks Bill

I gave the so-called amd (+mac) iso a try though did not click on the "Install now"
Mainly because I never got an "Installation Type" screen so wasn't going to risk losing my current installs

Did you get the "Installation Type" screen, either before or after 'Install now'? (it should be before

2nd reason is because I don't see why I'd want the +mac image for an intel machine...

No .. I did not get "Installation Type". Tried the live session also .. no go. It just walked me through up until username/password <continue> and then the Ubiquity carousssel.

Well without the "Installation Type" & partitioner ect. the .iso is basically worthless, maybe tomorrow or so will be better..

Earlier today I noticed that there were now daily images on the qa site. I downloaded today's (20121107) desktop amd64 and I got the same thing that you guys are reporting.

The slideshow worked great but it did not give the Allocate Drive Space screen, So no option to Do Something Else or anything else. It took the location, the keyboard and my details but did not install.

See, what you get by complaining about Ubiquity! It is not being included in the image anymore. :)

It is a new style live session. It takes you through the install process without actually installing. It is for those of a nervous disposition.

Regards.

Perhaps I am going out on a limb here but I am of the mindset that perhaps they are trying a re-build of Ubiquity from the bottom up, hence , patience? But, if you are correct , then the whole testing process that we are accustomed to at U+1 has been effectively nuetered.

That leads to my folow-up question .. what's the use of expending any further efforts at constructing the testers-wiki ?

What happened to the automated testing they were going on about at UDS? How can they put these images up for download when they do not work? Where is the hurry?

They want ISO testing in a two week pattern with the first week spent testing the image and it does not matter which of the daily images that week a person tests (this is my understanding of what I have read). So, why put images up for download before the testing schedule is in place?

Sometimes, I get disillusioned and I then find it very hard to overcome that feeling. I try to do things because I want to do it and then I try to do it for my own satisfaction. That's how I try to get through the day.

I just used the existing iso, got into Live mode, updated ubiquity, and it works as always - allowing you to choose where to install, etc.

In fact, it's installing right now :KS

Boot to the Live Desktop. Open a term. sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get upgrade ubiquity. Start the installer. That's all there is to it.

BTW, I am coming to you from a nice fresh installation of the Raring Ringtail! So far (about 13 minutes) so good. I am in the process of "moving in" and getting set up to my prefs.

Install amd64 O.K. after apt-get update, apt-get dist-upgrade.

At least 15 python upgrades.

Install O.K.

Update did the same 15+ python upgrades all over again.

BTW, got an Intel solid state drive from Tiger Direct bargain plus rebate, opened up the laptop, save the Windows 7 for when I pass the laptop off, install the solid state drive.

General impression, ZOOM.

p.s. installed i386 on USB drive on Acer Aspire1 netbook O.K. Same whole pile of python updates, on live before install and then same ones plus some others after install.

Running about the same as the raring apt-sources update, which is to say O.K. but on this netbook wireless WPA security is a real bear. Select network, try to enter anything in a drop down box, wait minutes for any keystrokes to appear. Pangolin runs fine with this hidden wireless WPA. Fastest thing on it so far is Android tablet....blows Ubuntu away for response. BTW, processor speed on tablet 1 gHz vs. 1.6 gHz on intel netbook. Yes, there's a launchpad bug written.
