Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Kubuntu 10.04 daily live 2010-03-16
Installer crashed with this message:

During intallation process came also an error message:
ubi-console setup failed with exit code 141
and the keyboard läyout was not chosen to Suomi(Finnish) but stayed as USA

The keyboard layout is OK (Suomi=Finnish) in the live enviroment I am writing this down.

I can confirm that this crash happens also in Spanish (and from a duplicate, also in Korean). I will attach my debug file, that contains the backtrace of this crash.

Jari,

Can you please attach your debug log from the install attempt? If you have to run the install again to get it, can you do so in debug mode (`ubiquity -d` from a terminal window) and run `apport-collect 539463` when it crashes. That will give us a much more detailed log.

Thanks!

Sorry I am unable to give the debug log, because I don have that disk image of Kubuntu 10.04 daily live 2010-03-16 left.

So I tested the beta1 image:
kubuntu-10.04-beta1-desktop-i386.iso 18-Mar-2010 02:06 679M
and the installer (ubiquity) worked fine, without errors, with finnish settings.

So, I think, this case can, for now being, be concidered solved, if there are not similar problems left with other languages.

Yours

Jari

PS. The installer in todays(25.03.2010) Kubuntu-daily lacks user-setup and summary, so the installation is without any user and is unusable for unexperienced users. Also there is no control for grub-install.

This is still happening in Beta 2 candidate images (20100406)
I will attach the debug log.

This bug is also present in Kubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat Alpha 1!

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Reviewing your log files attached to this bug report it seems that there is a problem with your installation media (CD/DVD). Please retry your installation with new media and if it still fails I'd recommend testing your CD drive with other media. In the event that is is not in fact an error with your installation media please set the bug's status back to New. Thanks and good luck!

The Problem still exists in kUbuntu 13.04!

Try to install with Swiss-German Keyboard (i.e. choose it at boot screen) and there's a "ubi-console-setup failed with exit code 141" after setting the timezone; later (after ignore) the installation completely fails.

And yes, I just correctly downloaded and burned a 64bit kUbuntu Desktop 13.04 image from kubuntu.org.

Try it!

Install kUbuntu in German (Deutsch) / Swiss German Keyboard (Deusch Schweiz), selected already at boot.
