please download and use our 13.2.0 Release instead of the rc

Got the same error when trying to install on my ssd, file system ext4.

Settings on installer: Manually set partitons for /; /home; /data; (this 3 on GPT) /var; /win ; /swap; (this 3 on another ssd with "normal" PT); changed hostname, aktivated contrib/non-free, Grub to sda

Another try on a HD succeeded: Partiton for /; /home; changed hostname, aktivated contrib/non-free; Grub to sdc

Trying again on ssd with the same settings: same error.

Trying with changed settings now, one after the other, to find out the reason.

ok, got the reason for the installers error:

My true name contains a german "Umlaut". Changing this "ü" to "ue" let the installer start.

Also I have to let the manually assigning of the swap space out of the config. Doing this manually let the installer stop with another error.


And why did it work on my testinstallation? I only write my true name in full lenght on my planned main system. On test installations I always shorten it to "jk"  ::)

The reason of the error is a character set problem. Some info of the disk (e.g. partition label...) contains at least one non ASCII char, which cannot changed to UNICODE.
Therefore this error occurs on some systems, on other not.
This error will be repaired.


Dieser Fehler kommt dadurch, dass mindestens ein Nicht-ASCII-Zeichen in der Diskinfo (z.B. Partitions-Label) vorkommt, und dieses nicht nach UNICODE konvertiert werden kann.
Daher tritt der Fehler in manchen Systemen auf, in anderen nicht.

The error occurs here both in German and brazilian Portuguese. I can't imagine that the invalid caracter is from my disk information. I use a usb stick formatted in fat32 for use in both UEFI and MBR-Systems.The stick is shown in Dolphin as "090c Spaceloop".

Btw, the portuguese translation of sidu-installer is lost. The text is in English.

Happy New Year!

Hallo,
auf meinem Notebook gab es ebenfalls diesen Fehler im grafischen Installer, obwohl in keinem Namen oder HD-Label ein Umlaut war. cli-installer klappte.

Auf meinem Desktop scheitert schon der erste Schritt des Installers (und nicht erst der letzte, wie beim Notebook):
Unter der Adresse  "http://sidu-installer:8086/autopart" steht dann:

/tmp/error_log.5KW0Vs70 ist aber leer?!

Dieser Fehler ist reproduzierbar.
Ich habe aber weder im Username, noch in den Labels der Partitionen Umlaute oder Sonderzeichen?!

is there any possibility to check this diskinfo in advance?

hatte bereits geschrieben, dass dies bei mir nicht zutrifft.

bzgl. cli-installer, der bei ja ebenfalls abschmiert (zumindest auf einem Rechner)
