First Impressions

Obviously the look and feel of a distro need to offer enough to temp one to persevere. The first prerequisite for any distro is that it works - preferably OOTB - across my (six) machines which mostly have old(er) hardware.

Re: Copying total size is .... install freezes?

It's actually from liveusb. So far I've tried on 3 of my machines and in each case the (different) sticking point seems to be caused by electing to include the multimedia additions (codecs?). Trying again without that choice seemed to go ok (slight differences on end install but may comment on them ...

Re: Installation asks for Root mount/format

Thank you for your input guys. First of all the good news - installation went perfectly this time and a smoother experience than original attempts. But, despite my original downloads on 6th April being labeled "latest" the last modified dates for above link are 13/14 April which I believe is why the...

Re: Installation asks for Root mount/format

cwwgateway - USB and accepted install Plymouth as default option. did inxi -F but can't post output as SolydK won't let me write to anything nor accept internet settings!

Re: Installation asks for Root mount/format

Update - I think it's stuck. Been at libgs.so 9.05 for 25min....?

Re: Installation asks for Root mount/format

Thanks cwwgateway!

That is counter-intuitive to me (in other distros that would be manual)! As is the Edit Paritions button which then launches GParted but is not needed since it is apparently a right click on the selected partition to set it as root.

Anyway, installation now in progress...

Re: Installation asks for Root mount/format
