Install Problems (Solved)
« on: 2021/06/14, 16:33:29 »
I posted this message a few days ago. I was a Arch user of many years and loved the challenge of a rolling release so I accept Debian Siduction as my next rolling release.

As previously indicated I installed on Gnome Boxes and tested Siduction for a few days. Today I dug out an old laptop and installed. What? No problems. The install went great without any problems! Based on this install with my old laptop I will now install on another laptop which is a ThinkPad T480 which I use daily. I am happy with this rolling release.  8)

Thanks for resurrecting Debian Siduction  :) I had problems installing Siduction 2021.1.0 on my ThinkPad T480 laptop. I installed on Ubuntu with Gnome Boxes. After several attempts I now have Siduction Cinnamon installed The Calamares installer froze at 35% every time. I tried a reboot and it did install.

My second install was on Linux Mint with Gnome Boxes. The install happened with no problems.

Once I am satisfied I will remove Ubuntu and install Siduction on my ThinkPad T480.

Appreciate the reply. As I write this I am down loading https://news.siduction.org/2021/02/siduction-2021-1-1-c-blues-point-release/

I will try this version and hopefully it will install without problems.

I installed on a Virtual box for Ubuntu called Boxes.

VirtualBox is VirtualBox, Gnome Boxes (I think you mean that) is Gnome Boxes - 2 different programs.

Gnome Boxes isn't the greatest virtualization solution.

VirtualBox (the Oracle application) is not the greatest virtualization solution either. I use and recommend KVM/QEMU.

I agree with your comment Virtualbox is not the best virtualisation program. I have found Gnome Boxes to be the best solution. I have used KVM/QEMU and found it ok.

To be honest, I would not rely on boxes. Tried it several times and was not too happy.

I have used Gnome Boxes since changing from Arch a few years ago and it has worked flawlessly. Debian Siduction installed under Gnome Boxes with a few problems with Calamares. Does the install problem come from Dosfstools 4.12? I have used Calamares on other installs and it works great. However, I am now satisfied with the Siduction install and will continue to work with it for the next few weeks. Thanks again, I look forward to further upgrades.

If you used siduction 2021.1, Dosfstools might have been the culprit. Usually Calamares has no problems with siduction. But all is well that ends well. Enjoy siduction.
