Installation Fails To Install Software
Got my new PC built today. I guess I am confused because it fails during the software installation section. It gets as far as asking me what software I want and clearly only select:
- Desktop Software
- Base System
Now it starts loading software and then eventually I get a big "RED" screen that indicates a failure during the section "Software Selection".
I am wondering if this is caused by the way I have my two SATA drives partitioned?
SCSI0 = sda - Western Digital 2500JD
/boot = 250 MB
/ = 400 MB
/var = 1024 MB
/usr = 1024 MB
swap = 2048 MB
/tmp = 800 MB
Free Space = 24X.XX GB
SCSI1 = sdb - Western Digital 2500JD
/home = 250 GB
Is there a reason why it fails to install software? Can I have my /home partition on a seperate disk /dev/sdb and the rest of the system on /dev/sda?
Thanks for any info!
Your problem hasn't so much to do about partitions, but all with the SATA choice you made. Currently, there still are issues with installing Debian on SATA disks, do I recommend to get yourself a small IDE disk, have the base system reside on that and use the SATA disks for /home. This is exactly what I did last year when installing Sarge (later: Etch) to my server on a (then) brandnew AM2 platform.
