[SOLVED] Error during installation on HDD
« on: March 25, 2015, 02:32:14 am »
After the basic info (username, password) I had this error and the installer exited.
Any ideas?

Code: [Select]
Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/usr/lib/live-installer/frontend/gtk_interface.py", line 828, in wizard_cb
    partitioning.build_partitions(self)

  File "/usr/lib/live-installer/partitioning.py", line 55, in build_partitions
    partition_setup = PartitionSetup()

  File "/usr/lib/live-installer/partitioning.py", line 210, in __init__
    self.disks = _get_attached_disks()

  File "/usr/lib/live-installer/partitioning.py", line 201, in _get_attached_disks
    size = str(int(float(size[:-1]) * (1024/1000)**'BkMGTPEZY'.index(size[-1]))) + size[-1]

ValueError: substring not found

2.2 GHz Intel Core2Duo, ATI Radeon 4600, 4GB Ram

Running already Debian Jessie (SolydXK) with no problems.

Run the live iso.
You have two choices then.
1. If your machine has BIOS, run the old installer:
Code: [Select]
sudo sparkylinux-installer gui2. If your machine has UEFI:
Remove the present live-installer:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get purge live-installer
Just in case to make sure its clear:
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -rf /usr/lib/live-installerInstall the latest version of the live installer:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install live-installer
Nothing is easy as it looks.

Thanks. I did the noEFI install. It' s UP and running.
After some days using it I  'll be back, I hope not for problems solving.
