• Fail to install...


    I have tried to install a dozen times without sucess. I changed the mirrors multiple times. I choose canadian, brazil, USA alone and all together and… failed! I have tried even with last testing iso (2016.7.19).

    My last cnchin.log: http://hastebin.com/ocomegolof.coffee
    [0_1468974578150_cnchi.log](Uploading 100%)

    The root partition is full (327680Kb) and the newest packages last downloaded during install are zero lenght (in /var/cache/pacman/pkg) but in /install they are full lenght!
    Is it normal?

    No, it is not. This zero length is after trying installation or before trying? Can you check your iso md5 sum?

  • @karasu ISO md5 sum is ok. Zero length is after installation. It’s files downloaded after the partition became full that are zero length. I did a successfull instalation with gnome selected and the behavior is the same, so that zero length files don’t interfere with installation. I realize that files in “/install/var/cache/pacman/pkg” are used in the install process, don’t the “/var/cache/pacman/pkg” ones. So it seems not a issue although it seems strange!

    I’m installing with cinnamon selected. The issue is with him. I got “invalid or corrupt packages” in cnchi.log.
    I got successfull install with gnome and KDE.

  • The problem could be with this packages:

    Instalation is in portuguese. Last line says: “… pm_errno 34 (invalid or corrupted package)”

  • I retried the instalattion again now with default options and it failed. Its the twelfth time I try in the last few days!

    Anybody?

  • Hi thothix,

    The zero length was a bug fixed a few days ago. The one you’re facing now is that “invalid or corrupted package” that I have no idea from where it comes from. Oddly, we experienced it like a year ago, and it resolved by itself, so we hadn’t the oportunity to know what was wrong at that time.

    Nevertheless, I have an idea and I’m testing it atm. I’ll get back to you asap.

  • Nevertheless, I have an idea and I’m testing it atm. I’ll get back to you asap

    Nope. It didn’t work. It looks more like a mirror/build server problem than a Cnchi one. I’ll keep testing.

  • @karasu Certainly it’s a mirror problem. I had changed the repositories order and did a successful install. but already tried 4 installations after this and it dont install anymore. it was just a coincidence! I might have saved the cnchi.log to get the servers that are ok! I dont know how to identity the problematic package. I already dig a little with the source code of cnchi but I don know very well the installation process.

  • Hi again,

    Tested Gnome and works flawlessly. Cinnamon fails each time I try, but each time complains about a different package ¿?
