Is installer based on Ubiquity   ??? Not in all but.. example:
Also "who are you" and "Choose Your Installation Method" are very similar.

Hi Forum,
I really love manjaro linux. I have been using it for a long time. Yesterday I downloaded Manjaro 0.8.8. openbox edition and burned the image to the disk. When I try to boot from the cd it says isolinux 6.02 - ETCD. And thats as far as it goes, it will not boot from the disk. Anyone have any ideas ?

We fixed the issue with syslinux 6.02 by using syslinux4 for our final images.

WOW

Looks really good, just starting to configure now.

Only one issue I had with installation.  Got to setting location from the map, but also had an error, unable to partition drive.

Re-booted and manually partitioned and installed OK

Thanks for a really great release  :)

Hi all,

An first of all, happy new year.

I just downloaded the Manjaro 0.8.8 Cinnamon 64-bit iso and tried to install it on a VM prior to install it on a real hard drive but I've not been successful, both using the cli or the graphical installer.

Note: I'm using VMware Workstation 9.0.3 on my host Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS 64-bit.

Of course, I've checked the sha1num prior to perform the install and it's OK.

Further, as said in the manjaro-cinnamon-0.8.8-MUST-READ-BEFORE-INSTALL.txt file, I've used the command:

Code: [Select]
sudo sed -i "s|_desktop_|/bootmnt/manjaro/x86_64/cinnamon-image.sqfs|g" /etc/thus.conf && sudo thus
Then, the problem using the graphical installer is that after responding to all the questions, nothing appends (even waiting for one hour) and the install status bar doesn't move.  ???

Now, the problem using the cli installer is not better. The install process seams to be fine, but at the first boot, I get a grey screen with only a terminal window open, and no desktop.  :-\

So, where am I wrong and what should I do?

TIA for any tip and trick to install this nice distro (I do like Cinnamon). :-*

The NET version guide should be updated. It has mentions about KALU and some other issues that are are irrelevant these days.

I noticed that after a fresh Manjaro 0.8.8 install, my other OS (Ubuntu) is not detected and do not appear in the Grub menu.

Running 'sudo update-grub' from Manjaro fixes the problem.

Maybe something to fix in the install process ?

I have experienced the same problem as reported by FNUX and was hoping to find an answer here. The XFCE version installs just fine on the same PC, but the Cinnamon version starts doing something after responding to the questions (as indicated by disk activity), but then simply stops and the % meter never moves past 0%.
