live installer freezing

Postby bennypr0fane » 09 Mar 2019 17:25

The SolydK live installer isn't working for me, it displays the splash screen and then freezes in the foreground

Here's the terminal output:

Code: Select all

solydxk@solydxk:~$ live-installer

It just hangs there.

I ran geoipupdate in a separate tab to see what was going on there:

I cannot reproduce that.

Did you verify your download before you tried to run the ISO?

If you did, you can try to disable your internet connection before you run the Live Installer.

Yes, I used gpg signature to verify the download, it turned out correct.
Disabling the internet connection allowed me to launch the installer, then everything worked fine.
Why would the presence of an internet connection interfere with the installer?

It shouldn't. Like I said: I cannot reproduce that.
I suspect there was a glitch with the geoipupdate server, but I cannot confirm that.
