I am installing Daryna in 3 new logical drives for /, swap and ext3 (later, my home). These are in a 500 GB HDD with plenty of spare space as well. / is 5 GB, swap is 2 GB and ext3 (mounted at /media/sdc10) is 33 GB - total 40 GB.
Step 5 of 7 in Install is an option I don't remember - offers to migrate Docs & Settings from other accounts. I have selected 1 Windows and my most recent Ubuntu (Celena) and have specified the same User, login and password as before.
Now the Step 5 screen continues - baout 90 minutes so far - with its little rotating disc as the mouse cursor.
I am sending this from Firefox in the the virtual installation in memory! Fortunately I was able to consult the txt file in which I keep notes of usernames and passwords!
I suspect that the long delay may be due to Docs & Settings from Windows being imported into the new HDD - a mistake, as it will still be available in its original system - as will the Celena installation.
I have opened a terminal and in response to ~$ top it shows about 130 tasks, with a variable single figure running, nearly all for root but a few for mint as users. The table constantly changes; briefly haldaemo, and also messageb, - have appeared as users.
Any comments? BTW, a progress bar would be useful for processes like this - also for scanning discs during the set-up for manual installation.
