I'm not sure what could be the prob or how to diagnose. I do know
however that you can do a non-graphical install BUT it will require that
you download the Alternate Edgy 6.10 cd image.

I'm trying to install 6.10 on a computer.

Everything runs find off of the live CD. The scanner scans, the web camera
works, the internet works, everything is fine.

However, when I go to install to the hard drive, after entering user info,
partitioning, etc, the screen says installing software.

When it gets to 59%, it stops. And I do mean stops. No drive access light,
no cd spinning, nothing.

I've tried it several times.

My question is, is there someway to find out what is going on? There is no
info displayed on the screen, other than the status bar.

How do I dig in and find out what is going wrong?

Or, is there some way to do a non-graphic install of the CD? Would that give
me more information, possibly?

Any ideas are welcome!

When I upgraded I did it direct from the internet. Just follow the
instructions provided on the Ubuntu upgrade screen.


Thanks, but this is not an upgrade. I'm starting with an empty hard drive.
