I have a wired eth connection, but I unchecked 'download updates while installing' and 'Download mp3 codecs and nonfree graphics drivers' to speed things up for a quick install to another USB stick /dev/sdc2.
/dev/sdc is a 20G USB stick that looks like this; the first 4G partition is unseen, virtually untouchable, and already taken by another distro that works with Broadcom out-of-the-box (OB Revenge, a lucky find) but I want to have Bodhi take over the 16G, so that I can personalize it and make this Dell Studio work with Bodhi with all of that 16G (with swap too).
I proceeded to install, picked 'other' when it came to partitions, and the install starts the slideshow while it is copying over the files it needs. It takes a while, but it fails, and the installer tells me the next few screens will let me fill out a report so that our intrepid crew can work out some kinks left in the installation.
From what I can discern, I was notified that /dev/sdc2 is read-only. I was able to glean that much before another black box told me there were no error messages, and that this box will be saved in some-file-I-could-not-find.log. I am going to give it another try tonight. The 15" laptop is a Dell studio with a 64bit AMD Turion chip and DVD-RW drive and 4G ram. Maybe somebody here has a few ideas?
Sometimes when you are stuck you are tempted to post your problem right away, but we actually need more than the words "It doesn't work"; the staff or the team can assist you more efficiently with a little more information.
In case you are not sure what to include, here is some timeless advice. The turnaround time will be much quicker if the thread started out the right way--a win/win in my book. My favorite part is Don't rush to claim that you have found a bug
