"Base System Install Error" in Ubuntu 5.10
I wanted to try Ubuntu on my machine, and got another harddrive to install it on. The other harddrive has XP and Mandriva on it.
I partioned the new drive. I created one / (root) and one /home partition. I believe they are both ext3. I didn't create a swap space since I already have this, and it didn't ask for it either.
The install failed early on with the following error:
Base System installation error
The debootstrap program exited with an error (return value 1). Check /target/var/log/
bootstrap.log for the details
Second error when I try to install base system again:
No such script: /usr/lib/debootstrap/scripts//target
I can't look at the file since the install wasn't done.
I tried it a couple of times, but with the same error.
Any suggestions? I should be able to use the same swap space as another install, but I don't know if it will cause a problem if it's not on the harddrive the base install is being done on.
