latest lubuntu 14.04 32bit is a pain?


hello,
i tried to install lubuntu 14.04 on an
- eeepc 1000H and
- samsung nc10.
Both failed (from an iso installed with unetbootin on an usb stick).
Similar error (several module install missed).
Has somebody the same experience?
What would be the alternate install? xubuntu?
The lubuntu 13.10 install I made on a pc was fine; 14.04 seems a bit more difficult.

Are you sure your iso file is flawless?
Because if it is corrupt, you will not be able to install it. To check if iso file is fine or not, try to install it in Virtual Box.
If you can do it successfully there, you can install it using unetbootin too.

I had the same problem when I downloaded Zorin 8 core. I think it has to do with the internet and data transfer. It took me 3 different downloads from different places before I got one that would work/install correctly. So don't give up on Linux. Just keep trying. The same thing happened when I download Ubuntu 12.04 & 14.04

So, I tried again today, the lubuntu 14.04 HDD installation from an USB stick (prepared with unetbootin) stopped with following message:
Quote:
trying to overwrite ´/etc/consoles-setup/compose.iso-8859-1.inc´, which is also in package console-setup 1.82
So, lubuntu 14.04 is still not installable in my samsung nc10 in parallel to win7 (good thing: win7 install is not destroyed with the failed lubuntu install).

Having the same file in different packages that can be installed at the same time definitely is a bug and should be reported.

I downloaded the Lubuntu 14.04 iso, then burned it to a CD in Windows 8. I haven't had any problems installing it on two computers. Neither of the two were dual boot computers.

I went with core 14.04.

Easy Peasy 37MB Ubuntu. No usb with unetbootin though. Just cd.

Edit: oh yeah, and a hard wire ethernet connection.

My install was via USB (no CDreader on the netbook) and hardwired: this is perhaps the USB install which is not so good.
I will try the option "dont download during install" and see if it is a reason.
I will try xubuntu later if it fails again.

I have yet to get the wlan0 interface to work. I've made it a rule not to spend too much time on that, and just go with eth0. I had previous struggles with openSuSE wireless connectivity. For a neophyte like me, troubleshooting that was akin to banging my head against a brick wall.

Suggest you use Linux Mint 13 LTS, which is based on Ubuntu but has been tweaked to make it much more user friendly.

Or wait until the end of May this year for Mint 17 LTS to be released.

Same issue and same error with xubuntu (iso file installed on usb stick with unetbootin; installation samsung nc10 not possible).
It seems I filled a bug message with xubuntu on launchpad.
So, if I dont receive a new iso within 24h, I will try Mint.

I tried Mint16 today. The install failed too.
NOT funny.
I will have to move to another base distro.
What is the proposal for a netbook with Win7 on it (multiboot Win7 / Linux) and install from USB?

Did you ever try to dd the iso directly to a USB? I haven't myself, but a friend keeps telling me it's the best way. No guarantees, purely an experiment.

Give M X-14 a spin I guess. You have AntiX in your signature so it should not be a stretch for you. It installed just fine on my AAO1 150 via (Linux version) unetbootin and Chromium and pepperflash was easy peasy to install.

Did you use the option to "try before install" first to see if they worked? I am just a newbie, but I would think that might tell you if something is drastically wrong with the actual file. I downloaded xubuntu 14.04 to a DVD and had no problems with install. I checked the hash sums (think that's the right term) of download; then before install, there is an option to "check for disc errors"(or something like that) on the buntos which also confirmed that it was a good copy. To get to that, wait for the loading to start and you will see a small logo at the bottom, as soon as you do, press the "space" bar on keyboard.

I have been following reviews of the 14.04's and have not heard of any reports like you mention. Sounds like something is going wrong with the download aspect.

EDIT: I have heard you should not check the box "install updates" during install. I did not check that box and just updated manually after install.
