I tried some time ago, to install Ubuntu from the Live CD, and it will not work on my system. I had to go and dig up the 'other' Ubuntu disk, to get it to install.
I really want to check out Mint, but it has the same issue when installing to the HD, from the LIVE CD....
In both the Ubuntu and Mint Live CD installs, I get to where it wants to partition things, and when it goes to open qparted, it just hangs. I get a tiny window with qparted on the menu bar, and that is all she wrote.
My drive is already partitioned, and I can surely use another live distro to create the filesystem, but the Mint/Ubuntu install always wants qparted, and so here I am, with no way to get Mint onto my machine...... Any ideas, or suggestions?
My MB is an Intel 3.0G, 512M, ATI All In Wonder Video. Two 80G IDE hard drives, and one 80G SATA drive.
Is there a way to install, without using the partition step in the installation menu?
I have read other posts, and the comments are made that if I add "this" to Ubuntu, I will have Mint, but I want to do the install cleanly, as I am one who is searching for a distro I can keep and be productive with, and Mint is on my list at the moment <g>
