I’m happy to return into OpenMandrivaLX4 experience after a Long period of absence.
So I’ve tried to install OpemMadrivaLX4.2 from website via iso image.
I have burned iso into a usb-flash-card and use it to launch the live.
Into openmandrivaLX4.2 live on my notebook I have launched the installation program.
I need to a manual partitioning of my hd because in the beginning on it I need to leave windows 7 OS, so I have tried to use manual partitioning installation tool.
I have settled my linux partitions as I need and when I went to start installation the program abort during partitioning of hd, in particular I found that the program tried to delete partition 7 (that I have created just ok) and recreate it with a mount point /run???
After that the installation abort.
The partition recreated abnormally it’s impossible to delete via kpartded but only via fdisk but if I try to install again the same problem occurs.
I’m stuck with this problem and can’t do nothing to recover.
Can you help me about please?.
Many thanks and best Regards.
_OpenMandriva Lx version: Lx4.2 first Installation
Desktop environment (KDE, LXQT…):
Description of the issue (screenshots if relevant):
Relevant informations (hardware involved, software version, logs or output…):
Hereafter what I’m able to log about the problem during manual partitioning install.
I have resolved the problem preparing partitions using kde-partition and next, after run install, into manual partition modifying only the mounting points of the partitions in which I needed to install OpenMandriva (/boot, /root, /home and swap).
In this way I achieved the installation without errors because it was non necessary to create new partitions during installation.
I think the problem occurs if it is necessary to create a new partition during installation program.
I remain available for any further information.
Nice to read you, Colin
yes I know I have windows 7 installed.
But now I’m working with OpernMandriva 4.2 installed OK like I mentioned before.
Bypassing partitions manual creation during installation.
