Installing and hanging during installation log generation.

Alright, loving #!, I've tried both 32 and 64 bit on a very dated system (Biostar Socket 754 motherboard, Athlon 64 3700+ CPU, 2GB RAM, 80GB SATA drive, and a GeForce 256MB 8600GTS), and when using the guided partitioning, using separate partitions for everything, I get to the installation log generation, and it hangs.

While I can reboot, and boot normally, I don't feel "right" by doing this knowing the installation hung.

However, when I use the first time user option (one partition), it completes successfully. I'm thinking it may just be a HDD issue (as it IS a very old 7200 RPM mechnical drive). At first I thought it may have been due to the DDoS attacks on the repos... but others have had success installing during the time of the attacks.

Any suggestions?


Be excellent to each other!

Re: Installing and hanging during installation log generation.

Just a suggestion:

  1. /dev/sda1 = /root = 15GB

  2. /dev/sda2 = /home = 15GB

  3. /dev/sda3 = /swap = 1GB

  4. /dev/sda4 = extended partition

  5. /dev/sda5 = /media/MyData (change MyData to anything you want) = ±49GB

use "/media/MyData" for your documents, videos music etc etc

If you ever have to reinstall your OS, /media/MyData just needs to be mounted and all you stuff is still there.
