Now testing v0.5.13 – moving right along!
Answering questions, then on to the Advanced Partitioning screen, no ‘Install Now =>’ lit.
Now we *do* get a Remove and Change button lighting up when clicking on a given partition. So proceeded with:
>Clicked on /dev/sda1 swap then Change (this step was not necessary as sda1 was already formatted (from last test install), in place, and ready to go) and made sure all the settings were correct. They were.
>Now click on /dev/sda2 / root then Change. Noticed the Mount point needs to be set, and there are options to change the FS type, and select format as necessary. Did both, set the Mount Point, and selected Format (which can also be set from the main Advanced Partitioning screen.
>As soon as the / Mount point is set (at the same time added the label: ROOT), we now get a lit ‘Install Now =>’!
>Since I want this test install to be life-like, I do *not* want to format/erase data on my /home partition (/dev/sda3) nor my /home/bill/STORAGE (/dev/sda4) partition, I simply had to go in and Change/set the mount points as stated.
>Click on: ‘Install Now =>’
>Moves forward after a short time of reformatting the root partition to asking the personal and other setup questions.
>Now we get downloading of the files with the with the single progress bar, and slides that still say Razor-qt instead of KDE!
>It now looks like we have a problem – again, since I did choose “(AUR) support” – downloading yaourt. Comes up with an error dialog with: “Can’t download and install necessary packages.” With a close button to close Cnchi.[/quote:urln0qt3]
Testing Cnchi v0.5.14
Seems to have fixed (most?/all?) from my own quote above, so will now report as I see it now:
<BUG?>The confirmation list to continue to make changes below (partitioning, formatting, etc.), still does not match the Advanced Partitioning dialog order. sda1 should be at the top, then on down the list.
=Downloading takes a long time, as we all know, but at least continues to the end, and to System Configuration, and such.
=Maybe add a colon *:* after the word *Downloading packagename* >Like this: *Downloading: packagename*
<BUG?>The download progress bar percentage for each package download is still out of sync with the actual download percentage. Example: linux got to 59% on the progress bar, even though 100% complete on the DL.
=Now we do see a overall progress bar on the download/install dialog, it does take a long time to move off of 0%. Maybe make it inch along as packages are actually downloading, so the user will see progress sooner. Also, even though we see the slides moving, it may be a good idea to add a rotating icon/widget as files are downloading, and even other functions (such as formatting partitions) that we must wait for Cnchi to complete.
<BUG>Once it gets to System Configuration, Cnchi won’t finish. (slides do continue to move) Last lines of cnchi.log are below:

Side note: Hey Dustin, since you did such a great job fixing spellcheck in Firefox, would you like to look into why I can’t attach a file (cnchi.log) with ‘Upload attachment’? I even tried renaming the extension to .png.
