RC installer crashes at "creating user"

Post by Katyanewb »

My Mint 12 RC installer has crashed twice at the "creating user" point.

Not sure if it's important, but I already run Mint 11 and was installing the RC off the full 64-bit DVD. At the initial input page I used the same username as on 11. My password was unique and contained lowercase, uppercase, numbers and punctuation. I checked the box for "encrypt my home folder." Everything was going fine until it got to "creating user" and then it crashed and gave me an error message saying I'd be redirected to an "integrated bug reporting tool"--which I was never redirected to.

Has anyone else had the same problem?

Why don't you give the other threads here at least a glance? :roll:

I read the other threads here, and it seems the RC should still be in alpha testing rather than an RC, since more things about it don't work than do work. As for filing a bug report that's just going to get ignored, I'm not gonna bother.

Thanks for the link. I'll just wait for the final release. Luckily, formatting the RC partition is pretty easy.
