(solved) Calamares

PostPosted by blaze » Sun Apr 09, 2017 5:54 pm

I have now installed +3.4 four times with Calamares. Two downloads of the iso. Both with dd to usb. Live session has been excellent. It seems that it does the job without complaining, but when rebooting it does not even get to the grub screen.

I have done several installs with Calamres of the previous iso in Virtualbox without problems of any kind. Calamares is so simple and straightforward that you can`t do it wrong. I do not mind using it, it does the job, and I do not have the need for all the choices that master abif gives. :)

For this instance, I'd appreciate if you could test your install using ABIF. If that doesn't work come back to us.

Oooops, sorry, forgot to mention that I installed with abif instead. Wanted to teport it anyway, mostly to see if there is someone else experiencing the same thing, since this might be something very Calamares specific.

around your time there has been an issue with virtualbox. All we got was a black screen and sometimes a cursor...
two -three days later there was an update that solved this issue
it is fixed by now

Maybe I were a bit confusing in my first post. :D

Calamares worked very well when installing in Virtualbox. But it did not work when doing an install to hd. That happened with the +3 iso. When trying to install the +3.4 iso to hd the same thing happened, it did not work when installing to hd, but in Virtualbox. Will try to install the latest iso in Virtualbox with Calamers this weekend.

I have installed to hd with abif instead. This might be a Calamares problem, so what have other experienced with Calamares, specially when installing to hd? :)

Ok, thanks erik. Did an install in Virtualbox with Calamares from which I am posting and everything worked as it should. :)

Will do a rethink of how to dispone my T-pad laptopzilla and see if I can give some more space to ARCHLab. ;)
