I get that you had problems with partitioning but there is nothing a developer can actually work on in your statement.
Ah, so a user confronted with my statement might justifiably ask, “Well @ben79, how the heck do I get something a developer could work on?”. That, of course, depends on the nature of the problem, but one of the first things developer person will ask for is some kind of logs showing what happened. In this case since it involves an ssd and the Calamares installer they will ask for hardware information, at the least, exactly what make and model of ssd. Then they’ll ask for logs from Calamares installation attempt. Both are easy to do.
There are commands to get way more detailed information about you storage drives but let’s not deal with that unless we need to. To get general hardware information one easy way is with the inxi command. Like this. As regular user:
$ inxi -F
To run that a put the out put in a file you could post here for developers/contributors to read is still very simple:
$ inxi -F > inxi-f.txt
That will create the file: inxi-f.txt (2.3 KB) That would be the file I just created on this computer.
which you post here with the aid of the upload arrow.
Then there is one more step which is to get the logs from the Calamares installer. I’ll describe that in next post.
