• TypeError: could not convert value for property `transient_for' from InstallationAdvanced to GtkWindow


    Hi,

    TypeError: could not convert value for property `transient_for’ from InstallationAdvanced to GtkWindow
    cnchi.log.zip

  • The problem is here:

    2015-09-09 19:12:40 [ERROR] fs_module.py(244) create_fs(): Command '['mkswap', '/dev/sdb5']' returned non-zero exit status 1
    2015-09-09 19:12:40 [ERROR] advanced.py(2145) run_format(): Couldn't format partition '/dev/sdb5' with label '' as 'swap': Command '['mkswap', '/dev/sdb5']' returned non-zero exit status 1
    

    What do you have on /dev/sdb5 ? It was previously mounted? I cannot guess why mkswap fails with this info.

    EDIT: Sorry, I forgot to tell you that the TypeError is indeed a bug, but it’s not related with your problem at all.

  • @karasu sdb is an internal SDD. I try to install on a SATA drive

  • Has there been any advance on this issue? I am having the same issue.

  • @surfacethought :

    If you’re having the “TypeError: …” then check that you’re using the latest packaged Cnchi stable version, it should be 0.12.24

    If you’re experiencing the mkswap error… could you please post your /tmp/cnchi.log ?

  • @karasu Thanks for the reply. I am having the TypeError with the most recent version. Attached are the log and a screenshot.

  • Update:

    Just tried again with the most up-to-date cnchi and am still receiving the same error message.

  • @surfacethought

    I’m really sorry. I cannot reproduce it here. Which version did you use this time?

    I’ll go through your logs again, but I’m not confident about it.

  • I am having the same problem as well on cnchi v0.12.43. cnchi.log

  • @Eadword thanks for the log. I’ll have a look at it. This issue is making me crazy as I seem incapable to reproduce it here.

  • @Eadword :

    I’ll look into it. Thanks!

  • Oh boy! would it be of any help if I tried again and submitted another log?

    What did you had on /dev/sda1?

  • I’ve had a few different things on there, but I am 99% sure that I that time there was Linux Mint Debian Edition 2 on there… no separate / and home partitions or anything… and it should have already been ext4 as well…

  • Same problem here.
    It happens since the last ISO Refresh, and is not solved ont the new daily builds.
