Problem installing Elive
October 06, 2008 10:55AM
I downloaded the latest version, 1.9.02, but I can't seem to install it. The CD boots fine, then I begin the install. Elive tells me that it must download a file (or key?), which it does, and the install seems to begin. Unfortunately, after checking the CD's data and partioning the HD, Elive gives me an error message saying (again) that it needs that file. Then installation stops.

Does anyone have suggestions? Many thanks.

Try using 1.9.10 as thing seem to improve rapidly, and that you are not using a CD-RW.
Use CD-R only.
Thanks

I also remember that the file after downloaded then opens with a short key that you enter into the blank line below, not doing this will make it fault into wanting the file again.

I actually booted successfully the latest devel version from CD-RW.
