daemon is being inhibited
I am trying to install ubuntu 10.04 from a boot CD. A fresh install.
System has one IDE 120GB disk. AMD x32 processor.
I can't install it from the CD. It gives an error and sends me to an emulated RAM session.
There, I can see the disk, a partition just made for a Windows XP system, and a 90 GB empty space.
When I try to partition this space from Linux (ext3 or ext4), I get the error:
"error creating partition"
An error occurred while performing an operation on "120 GB Hard Disk" (AT Maxtor ...):
The daemon is being inhibited
any ideas how can I solve this?
I discard a hardware problem, since I just installed a fresh Windows XP with no problem. Linux simply will not access the disk. Cannot format the existing partition, or create a new one.
Can you help with this problem?
