Installation hangs after choosing timezone

I'm trying to install Mint on my PC, but I can't seem to be able to move past "Where are you from?" part, despite multiple reboots and tries. Attached under the code section is the syslog found in /var/log/syslog, in case it helps.

Code: Select all

The PC I'm installing to has Intel 945GCLF board (with Atom 230 onboard processor and Intel 945 integrated graphics adapter), 2GB of RAM, two WD hard drives (80GB and 500GB), and USB keyboard and mouse. The internet connection is provided via an USB mobile broadband modem.

Any clues on how to install Mint?

AW: Installation hangs after choosing timezone

Postby teilnehmer on Sun Oct 21, 2012 3:20 am

Try installing with all unnecessary devices unplugged (including the wifi dongle).

Also, try starting the live CD with the boot parameter "nomodeset" which you can enter in GRUB. If you're unsure how to do this, websearch "linux mint grub nomodeset live cd", I'm sure there are guides better than what I could stammer. Sorry I can't give a link right now, I' on my phone.

Lastly, try a text-only installer (are these still around?).

These steps are the ones that helped me on similar occasions. I don't know too much about why installation fails (neither in your case, nor in general), and I'm sure some other people could pin down the error more precisely, but from one (currently) frustrated user to another (recently), this is what I would try.

Kind regards!

Re: Installation hangs after choosing timezone

Hi,

I've tried the steps mentioned in this thread with no avail. However, I've just recently found this:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/664533
and this:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/645449

Since in my understanding Linux Mint is based from Ubuntu, would it be a possibility that I'm affected with the bugs I posted above?

I've been bitten by this same bug. Did some digging, and it appears to be a bug in the slideshow that displays during the installation, not the installer itself. If you open a terminal window before you start the installer, and execute this command:

sudo apt-get remove ubiquity-slideshow-mint

THEN start the installer, it works.

best,
Jim
