Daryna stalls at import of documents and settings

Postby pschoen6 on Tue Nov 20, 2007 5:18 pm

When installing Daryna from the live CD, the installation stalls at step 6, during "importing documents and settings". I installed over Celena, and now when I try to reinstall Celena, the same thing happens. Help please. I muti-boot with Windows, Mandriva, and Mint.

It takes a long time sometimes, a very long time, but I don't think it's stalling
I have experienced more than five minutes waiting time here
I can't remember 100% but I think you can turn that off....

Would you happen to know how to turn it off. It is the migration assistant, I think?

Thanks

Problems with Daryna Migration Assistant

Postby pschoen6 on Wed Nov 21, 2007 5:30 pm

You are right; there is a solution. I Googled "disable migration assistant mint", and here is what I found.

Alt-F2 instead of clicking the Install icon. Run: ubiquity --no-migration-assistant

I don't know what I am missing by disabling the Migration Assistant, but I couldn't install Daryna with it enabled.

Thanks

Isn't there an option in the GUI? Have of course to start an install to find out...
The migration assistant is the thing that imports your Firefox and Thunderbird settings and such, so it's completely harmless to turn it off (I hope :))
