Now i understand you and your irony. I think i deserved it.
Give Linux Mint Gnome RC x64 one more chance. If you have
time, do a new installation and check if the problem persists.
Well, we'll have a final version of the Gnome x64 edition and
i believe everything will be ok. This x64 RC is very promising
and very good.
Thanks Clem and the Linux Mint Team.
Thanks for understanding. I tried it 4 times and it consistently locks up during the dpkg part at 85%. I don't think trying again will make any difference unless they changed something in the ISO since releasing the RC build. Ubuntu 10.04 works fine and since LM9 is based off Ubuntu, I am hopeful that by the time it releases officially it will be working as well. In the mean time I am running the 32 bit and enjoying it.
Ok just as an update to this. I downloaded the 64 bit ISO again just to be sure and tried installing again. Same outcome as before. So I decided to try something else and again tried to install. At 85% it starts downloading language packs and it is immediately after this that is runs dpkg so when the language packs showed, I clicked skip. It then jumped to 93% and started checking for hardware. It kept on going and eventually tried downloading language packs so I skipped it once again. Then it started running dpkg but this time it finished and eventually finished the entire install so here I am typing in LM9 64 bit. Something about the language packs maybe causing an issue with my computer on the 64 bit version.
