Installation hangs at 'Creating User'

Installation apppack

Frustration. Thanks to the last two answers, I started nosing around on other forums, and discovered that there is a known bug with encrypting your home folder while installing Ubuntu, et al. So all worked fine after I gave up trying to encrypt this during installing. Thanks again for your help.

I've been trying to install 4.0.0-apppack-64 to an Asus 2410 All-in-one. The Live-USB loads and performs as expected, but every attempt so far has hung at the 'Creating User' notification. I've tried 2 usb sticks, and the standard Bodhi as well as the apppack version.

 

Here is some basic info; I'll be happy to include an installation log if I know where to look.

Thanks much in advance.

 

P.S. I'm not a proficient forum user, but I'll be happy to add the output of lshw if that helps, and if somebody can tell me the best way to do so.





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

First off - welcome to the forums.

 

What does your partition setup look like for your install?

Good question. There's a bit here that makes me suspicious, but I don't know enough to be sure. I had intended to have a 4G swap partition, sda1 be /, and the rest be /home. I'm not sure why it went straight to an extended partition, since I was only asking for 3 primary partitions. This has been my standard partition schema for a long time; I'm open to improvements.

Disk /dev/sda: 698.7 GiB, 750156374016 bytes, 1465149168 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x21818002

Device     Boot      Start        End    Sectors   Size Id Type
/dev/sda1             2048  400007907  400005860 190.8G 83 Linux
/dev/sda2        400009214 1465147391 1065138178 507.9G  5 Extended
/dev/sda5       1456943104 1465147391    8204288   3.9G 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda6        400009216 1456943103 1056933888   504G 83 Linux

Partition 2 does not start on physical sector boundary.
Partition table entries are not in disk order.

Well, just for my satisfaction, after a little more research, I restarted from scratch, using fdisk instead of the installer's partitioning tool. I set things up more to my liking, and tried the installation again. It is still hanging, apparently at the same place. Here is the current partition data:

bodhi@bodhi:~$ sudo fdisk /dev/sda

Welcome to fdisk (util-linux 2.27.1).
Changes will remain in memory only, until you decide to write them.
Be careful before using the write command.

Tried using a non-GPT partition setup? What file system(s) are you using?

I started with an MBR setup; only for this last try did I change it to GPT. I'm using Ext4.

You've checked the md5sum of the downloads you have? If you expand the arrow at the bottom of the installer where it is hanging what does it say?

Sadly that output doesn't really have anything useful in it.

My only suggestion at this point would be asking on the Ubuntu forums / filing a bug report with the Ubuntu folks. We use their upstream installer without modification in 4.0.0

OK, thanks. I appreciate your work on Bodhi. It's my go-to for all installations except my own (I'm a little too deeply invested in Xmonad to make the switch, although I find E's simple tiling intriguing.).

I know there were issues with esudo and passwords with special characters. Does your username have special characters? Is it possible that is causing issues here too?
