I am new to linux and as such had some challenges and learned a whole getting this far, but now Im stumped.
After 3 attempts I finally managed to install F14 and get the Amahi repository and reboot.
Next I clicked the Amahi installer desktop shortcut and entered my install code and clicked submit.
Everything was going great until 30%....and that is where it stopped.
I looked online and found a tip on the wiki( see below). but when I open a terminal and access as root and type tail -f /root/hda-install.log but was told the file didn;t exist. Has anyone encountered this issue?
Is it safe for me to reboot the system and try the install again, or will this cause issues?
If your installations freezes
Some times, package installation gets stuck at one number (10% or 30% ...).
This can be due to package installation from mirrors. The installer tries to pick the fastest mirror, but it may still slow. However, the installation still continues in the background. You can monitor it from a terminal as root as:
tail -f /root/hda-install.log
and wait until you see progress ... the last 3 lines of a complete log look like this:
Stopping NetworkManager daemon: [FAILED]
Stopping unused services done.
Amahi installed successfully! please reboot!
If they do, it worked we have a hard-to-trace bug in the installer - where it freezes at one percent number, but the installation works in the background! "
