    On Xubuntu I never got to the Try/Install choice; it simply sat whirling around saying "Preparing Xubuntu" for 38 minutes.

    Re: Xubuntu Noble - New bootstrap installer.

    The ISO dated 2024-02-17 01:57 still uses ubiquity
    while the ISO dated 2024-02-18 01:57 uses the NEW INSTALLER snap:ubuntu-desktop-bootstrap stable/ubuntu-24.04 6
    so install problems are completely different.
    unfortunately there are no ISOs after the one on February 18th and I don't understand why

    I found the same nonsense on Ubuntu Cinnamon.

    In fact, of the various installs I tried today, only Kubuntu worked. That is, apart from little bits and pieces like the ubuntu base smoke tests. There's not much to go wrong there, anyway.
    BACKUPS are unsexy — until you discover you should have done one yesterday.
    Spare your nerves and do one before you upgrade or install.

    Comment added to your "untrusted" bug as I think it has been happening for a long time, going back to previous Xubuntu versions.

    Hello,

    this reminded me the first days of trying to install ubuntu with the new installer: it was taking a very long time to install while seeing this circulation icon time and again. Trying anew an installation almost a week ago under virtualbox things were much better. I always try to increase the number of processors and memory dedicated to vb from the default values (which are low) though.

    Regards!

    I get the "white" screen when installing. Nothing spins, just regular but white screen. Same as Ubuntu a few weeks ago.

    I HATE SNAPs!!
    I don't hate Snaps anymore, I just don't use 'em.

    I added to your second link. The "white" blank screen.

    If You install Ubuntu you are using a snap: snap:ubuntu-desktop-bootstrap stable/ubuntu-24.04 6

    But presumably after installing the system you can still remove all snaps and the whole snap infrastructure as I do to all my installs of Xubuntu.
    There are non-snap alternatives for all the applications/packages that I ever use including all of the default applications installed by default now as snaps. That may not continue to always be the case and they may come to be forced on Ubuntu users (and all the rest of the *buntu family).

    At the moment that is certainly so in Xubuntu which is my OS of choice but if snaps are eventually forced on Xubuntu with no usable alternatives I shall start using Mint-Xfce or some other distro that is not "snap-happy".

    I'm afraid I do hate snaps as my hardware is fairly old, 10 and 11 years, so just takes far too long to open snaps such as chromium or firefox so they're all gone along with snapd.
