    Unhappy Installation Problem

    Hi, I'm trying to install ubuntu using wubi but I'm having a problem.

    Every time I boot into ubuntu to complete the installation it stops and I get the chkdsk message.

    I've tried a dozen of times to install/uninstall it after running chkdsk /r on that partition and every time I get that message.

    I even tried to format the partition and it didn't work. I keep getting the chkdsk message.


    Do I have to install it on a primary partition? Is that why it isn't working?
    Any other ideas? I wanted to give ubuntu a shot, but it seems that I'm out of luck.

    Thanks

    Re: Installation Problem

    Can you install the normal way? That is preferred if anything, rather than wubi. (wubi owns though )

    Uninstall/reinstall
    After chooseing "ubuntu" at boot select "verbose mode"

    When the error appears, reboot into windows, you should have a file called: c:\ubuntu\installation-logs.zip

    Please attach it here.

    Also post the wubi log in your user temp folder (%temp%)

    Before rebooting please check the content of: C:\ubuntu\disks and list all the files in there and their size.

    Well at least for today I'd like people to try wubi, since today is the last day I will be able to fix bugs...

    Re: Installation Problem

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    I'm afraid that after choosing the verbose mode, I have no installation-logs.zip in my ubuntu folder

    Here are the other things you requested

    Thanks

    Re: Installation Problem

    Do you see C:\ubuntu\disks\root.disk (~9GB) and C:\ubuntu\disks\swap.disk?

    Also try installing again, when it stops, press CTRL+ALT+F2

    And run the following command

    sudo sh /custom-installation/hooks/failure-command.sh

    Now the logs should be in C:\ubuntu

    NOTE: this assumes that the error is during the Linux side installation: i.e. you should see a progress bar on a brown background with bird

    Yes, I have those, and the installation problem is on the linux side, with the bird on the desktop.

    I've got the logs this time, with the command that you mentioned.

    Thanks!

    Re: Installation Problem

    Edit c:\ubuntu\install\custom-installation\hooks\early-command.sh
    Append the following line at the end of the file:

    Code:
    sed -i '/#!/ a set -x' /root/bin/autopartition-loop
    When you save the document make sure that all line endings use linux convention (LF). You can use scite (http://www.scintilla.org/SciTE.html) to ensure that (under Options > Line Endings + Convert Line Ending).

    Delete the old logs, and reboot, then follow the procedure above and please post the new logs again.

    sed -i '/#!/ a set -x' /root/bin/autopartition-loop

    with a space after "set"

    Done that.

    Anyway, if it doesn't work, maybe I'll try a full install someday..

    Thanks
