Install hangs at time zone selection

Postby abovett » Sun Aug 19, 2007 7:51 pm

I'm tring to install Mint 3.0 (Gnome version). The installer hangs at step 2 - time zone selection. I believe that this may have something to do with having an nVidia card (seen references to similar problems elsewhere). Does anyone have any suggestions?

Regards

Andy B

Have you tried to use (select forward) the default that comes up, or is it hung tight there?

edit // try selecting one of the dots on the map for your location. A person of the Ubuntu forum claims the next/forward did show until they selected the location on the map.

Yes - makes no difference. Any other ideas?

The Ubuntu install (ubiquity) doesn't seem to play nicely with resolutions 800x600 and under. It won't display the necessary buttons on the bottom of the window to continue... so I think this is the point that you're at saying the 'time zone selection' hangs.

The work around is to press Alt-F7 while on that window. This will let you manually drag the window up so you can see the 'next' or proceed buttons below.

Hope this helps.

I had the same problem. I searched online until I found this screen shot from http://linuxgazette.net/136/lazar.html :

Pressing Alt + F will get you to the next screen. I continued to have problems not seeing the forward and back buttons during the installation. I relied on Alt + b and Alt + f to get me through.

Hopefully it will work for you.
