Two Apparently Bad Installs LM17 KDE SC

Postby 3a9hif7y15 on Tue Jun 24, 2014 12:10 pm

Hello . . .

Downloaded the iso of LM KDE SC 17 LTS to try and installed it twice. Both times failed at the same point.

After the LM logo appears then a message shows in the top left,

"keys: Press f to fix errors . . ."

I pressed f and then another message appears,

"keys: Press c to cancel changes . . ."

Tried waiting a very long time then then pressed c but lockup happened.

I entered text mode and ran a few of commands but all seems OK.

Two questions. Anyone else had this happen? Any suggestions of what these error messages catch?

I haven't had a bad iso download in years but if all else fails then I will redownload and check the checksum and try again.

But before that any help?

Hi!
An easy question: What is SC? (RC?)

SC = "Software Compilation"

I could be mistaken but I believe it is the official name of their desktop code.

From kde.org,
"KDE Software Compilation releases are made up of the KDE Platform, Plasma Workspaces and many KDE Applications."

Sorry, then I don't have an idea what to do. (Check md5sum or sha1sum?)
