sidu-installer will not start -Xfce-amd64
« on: 2013/12/24, 07:50:48 »
Hallo


I have tried a usb stick, and a dvd burned with  'burniso' from the same iso with a correct md5sum .


The chromium web browser is working fine in live mode.


When I try to start the sidu-installer,on both methods, I get the same web page details showing :

I have tried using the desktop icon and from the applications menu with the same result.


Is it possible to progress with this error showing ?

Does cli-installer work?
I never saw this output before, will send the traceback to the guy who last worked on the installer.

 Just confirming that I get the same error. Installing xfce to an old T60, the graphical installer makes the same fault as below, doesn't matter how you start it. cli-installer works as su.

another time: this may be happend with older machines - timing problems with the autostart i think - please try to start the installer with:

Code: [Select]
sidu-installer-control start

and please - give feedback, if it work

@melmarker,  That's what I meant with " doesn't matter how you start it" The above command will start the graphical installer exactly as clicking on the desktop-icon. After clicking "next" the first time I will come to terminal window with the same or similar message as pjnsmb. To be clear, I don't know about pjnsmb but the installer window start and it's after first click on "next" as the problem hit me.

Just for checking i tried the same again on the T60 and on two other laptops, and I can't reproduce the bug, the installer just works now!!! I used the same usb-stick with xfce 32 bit and tried several times on the T60 and one time each on the two others! The only difference I can think of is that the battery charge was close to zero when I did the first faulty tests but AC power was on.

it can be a timing problem or some kind of black magic - can you check please the Language Settings on these computers - it may be, that this can help us.

it may be, that two of your computers have different language settings than the third - knowing that would help a lot - we are currently searching for one or two f***ing letters, umlauts or such things - which are displayed or handled correct with other language sets - maybe a historical overcome or simply a typo :)

First, the problem has gone also on the T60 where I had the problem. Where is the language setting in the computer?

Language setting is only in the os on the usb-stick or the hard-disk?

I used the default language us-english and swedish keyboard when the fault ocured. 

Sorry for the spelling but spell-checking is still not working for me on this forum, (another thrad about that)

Entschuldigt bitte, wenn ich hier auf deutsch schreibe!

Ich habe exakt den hier beschriebenen Fehler beim Versuch der LXDEx86_64 Installation.
Auch der Aufruf des Installer mit dem Befehl von melmarker im Terminal hat dieses Ergebnis.

Der Computer (Desktop) stammt ursprünglich aus England und die Bios-Spracheinstellung ist ENGLISCH.
Weitere Sprachen wären japanisch / chinesisch (?). Das Bios ist ein Ami-Bios mit Build-Date 02/23/09

Es sind keine Entschuldigungen notwendig, Informationen sind in jeder Sprache gewünsch - ok, in kisuaheli, japanisch, burmesisch vielleicht nicht so eingängig - aber wichtig. Für den Rest gibt es den google Translator. Danke, ich hoffe, es hilft, diesen heisenbug einzugrenzen.
