Good morning everyone
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…):
We will need more information to help. But great question and one that applies to anyone installing any version of OM Lx.
What to do is explained here. You can use a translator to translate that to your language.
You can find solutions to many problems by looking in the Forum Resource Index or in our OM Wiki.
fwiw there is a more fresh 4.2 ISO here. 3 months newer.
I’l try to retry install with that release and will report about the results.
I think I’l be better either I send a more precise report about the problem
If you post here at a minimum run the installer from Konsole like this:
$ pkexec calamares -d | tee /home/live/calamares-installation-log.txt
and attach the log file created in your post here. This is explained in more detail in that article.
Edit: Combine screen shots of what you do with partitioning step with that log if possible.
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.
from boot USB iso OMV 4.2
can you report
inxi -Fza ( add inxi if possible )
test -d /sys/firmware/efi && echo efi || echo bios
You have a DOS partition table if you want to keep what you have you can’t switch to a GPT partition table.
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.
