Installer crashed

Asked by bremex on 2006-09-09

Hi all,

I am trying to install Kubuntu in my P4 machine using the Live CD. I created the partitions by myself (200 Gb). I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/ubiquity", line 130, in ?
  File "/usr/bin/ubiquity", line 55, in install
    ret =
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ubiquity/frontend/", line 310, in run
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ubiquity/frontend/", line 750, in process_step
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ubiquity/frontend/", line 1130, in mountpoints_to_summary
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ubiquity/frontend/", line 541, in progress_loop
    raise RuntimeError, ("Install failed with exit code %s; see "
RuntimeError: Install failed with exit code -11; see /var/log/installer/syslog and /var/log/syslog

Thank you in advance for your support.

Hi. You have discovered a bug probably in the live CD installer. I have created a bug report for your ( ). Please follow it and supply any information requested. In the meantime, you can work around the problem by using the "alternate" CD. Thank you for reporting this!

Is there any way to work around it using the Live CD? I would rather not have to download and burn another iso. Besides that however, I'm way impressed with the LiveCD. Good work. I really like the Xfce interface.

jugg, I'm under the impression that your problem is a bad CD problem. Try checking the MD5sum of the ISO you downloaded and reburn it.

Can you help with this problem?
