Power loss near end of breezy-dapper upgrade, start again?
Hi all,

My system had downloaded all the packages and was near the end of the installation.
When I came back to it the power was off (had been running on battery at the time and forgot to plug it back in!).
Unit will boot to login screen and allow me to enter details, but will hang while loading.

It was a fresh install so I won't loose anything by reinstalling (bar time wasted), is there anything I can try to complete the instalation?

I was upgrading from a new install of breezy which I was updating to the current version of dapper.

I have the breezy live / install cd's.

Thanks for reading.

If you lost power during the upgrade process then you miht need to either reinstall 5.10 or just download and burn the dapper then install.

Is Dapper out yet, or is it still in beta?

Dapper is out right now in beta. It is suppose to be final or gold (What ever you want to call it.) in June.

Beta all right, but it's installed now and happy with it so far. It'a on a dell D600 and all the hardware was detected, wireless network easier than windows. :)
