Fedora Installation :: Live CD Versus DVD Image Install

Feb 14, 2009

I recently started trying fedora 10 out on live cd (in my case usb ) and loving it. I want to install it, should I get the dvd image, or would it be okay for me to just install off live cd (usb) and install whatever I want through the package manager later... Why/why not? Also on live usb, I can't find the package manager under applications.

Fedora Installation :: Error W/ F13 Install To HD During Copying Of Live Image To Disk

Aug 25, 2010

I'm a Linux newbie and are trying to install F13 from bootable USB onto the HD of a DELL mini netbook. I've followed the install wizard's defaults including the "Use All Space option." The install errors out at about 20% of progress during the "Copying live image to hard drive" process. The error dialog is as followed:"There was an error installing the live image to your hard drive. This could be due to bad media. Please verify your installation media..." and it comes with options to Exit installer or Retry. I have since retried and restarted several times and still came to the same error. FYI, I've initially attempted to install F13 to the HD over an existing Windows XP.

I installed Fedora 13 and on my new laptop and tried upgrading to F15 and it gets stuck at "Late init script for live image".I've been searching and seen threads in the F15 Dev forum that I cannot reply to. I do not have akmod or kmod on this machine.I can get to a terminal, I have an SSH Server I installed before it broke. When I press ESC at the boot screen the last thing I see says "Late init script for live image"

Debian :: Mounting .iso Image Versus Extracting Data From .img File?

Feb 28, 2010

I use Lenny, and was trying to mount a .iso image, supposedly a cd imagem.

[code]....

This is what I get from dmesg | tail:

debian:/home/zac/cscd# dmesg | tail
[ 1811.505199] floppy0: disk absent or changed during operation
[ 1811.505207] end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0

[code]....

I did a little research on the web and it seems that this file is not really a cd image, but simply data in a .img file. What do you think of that?

debian:/home/zac/cscd# file cscd3.iso
cscd3.iso: data

Some people recommend to extract the data via the dd command, but it didn't seem very safe for me to do that!

[URL]

is it possible to extract the data into a directory (instead of a device) using dd? This file is supposed to be a software. I wanted to run it on wine by keeping it mounted on a mount point in my file system. Does it make any sense to try to do this if the file simply isn't a cd image?

Fedora Installation :: USB Install Can't Find Image

Nov 24, 2009

I downloaded Fedora-12-x86_64-DVD.iso and placed it on a 16GB USB drive using the Windows LiveUSB creator which had downloaded when I first download Fedora 11.The USB boots fine and I choose the language and the the keyboard layout. I tell it the image is on the USB drive it displays /images/install.img as the image.

However after going through all the steps up to choosing where I want it throws an error saying cannot find image #1 on the hard disk.Now if I boot again and instead of choosing the USB drive I hit F2 and then choose the USB drive then /Images then the install.img and press O.K. it says it isn't and just cycles around the choose drive/image.

I have downloaded Fedora-15-x86_64-DVD.iso and try to install as usual:copy the isolinux directory from the image and boot with grub´╝îbut the installer doesn't let me select the media and connects and downloads from network directory. After waiting a long time,it reports the network not available, and ask me to select repo from NFS, DVD or http/ftp, still no local hard driver. Is this a new feature of F15?

Followed all the steps to install the Netbook Edition. Boot up on Live USB worked great, install went thru without a hitch. Changed the BIOS settings to boot on the SSD HD. Unfortunately, after th BIOS splash screen, all I get is a blinking cursor on the upper-left corner of the screen. I suspect my SSD is starting to fail.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Unable To Find Media With Live Disk Image

Jun 27, 2010

I am having trouble both installing or even just booting the live CD. I have to interrupt the boot to give the nomodeset boot option.

Once I get the Ubuntu splash with the oscillating red and white dots for several moments, I get the Busybox with the error message "Unable to find a medium containing a live file system"

If I do a dmesg I then see a lot of sr0 errors. I have an onboard SCSI controller but no scsi devices. I am not sure if this matters.

OpenSUSE Install :: Mount A Live Compressed File System For Reading & Writing From A LiveCD/DVD Image?

Jul 9, 2011

On a Linux CD/DVD, there are compressed filesystem images for the live version for KDE or Gnome for example, but they have no extension, but they are clearly an image file ( compressed filesystem images for the live version before installation ) !!

I was wondering, How do I mount these compressed filesystem images, after I copy the ISO content of the CD/DVD on my system .... I want to edit some files or packages and make some changes, like if I want to customize a live version of gnome for example ! ... ( I know you might be tempted to tell me to use KIWI etc to customize etc ..... ) ... but I want to be able to mount the compressed file system image, then edit it for reading and writing while it is in a subdirectory on its own ... i want to open it ! ... is there a way to do this ??? ... these type of files have no extension ...

i can open this compressed filesystem image then to edit for read & write ... before I roll it back again ..... If and when I succeed .... what should I watch out for ? ... will the same compressed file image but slightly modified work again ?

PS. that same question could be kind of translated or be extended like : how do I use unionfs/squashfs programs on the command line to mount these image files with no extension for read & write mode ???

Fedora Installation :: Install And Live Do Not Even Start

Jul 18, 2009

So lets start with my laptop. I am currently running windows vista 64-bit and I usually experiment with linux on a virtual machine but I decided to try and put it on as a dual boot os. I have x3 320gb hdd (7200rpm) on raid5, x2 1gb nvidia gtx go running sli, 8gb ram, 2.8ghz core2 quad, and random other things that aren't important. Point is that my system should run anything I throw at it.

So I downloaded Fedora 11 from a torrent and burned the iso to a disk. When I run it, it pretends its going to run it, it comes up with a log and loads stuff and all. But then it just hangs.. it doesn't do anything, no live starts, no nothing. Its just a blank screen with a blinking underscore in the top left "_" so I type and my typing shows up and thats it. Any other time I've used Linux I've never had to put in a command or anything to start, so I don't know what the problem is.

Fedora Installation :: Live CD Or DVD For Clean Install?

Oct 21, 2010

For the last two releases I've used pre-upgrade ( F11>F12>F13 ). While F13 is working OK it's showing one or two minor glitches, such as the odd hang and sometimes part of the Gnome taskbar doesn't load. I realise these may be just F13 issues, but in case they're due to accumulated errors in two updates I'm planning to back up and do a clean install of F14 - once the feeding frenzy has died down.

The question, as posed in the title, is whether to D/L the full DVD or install from a live CD and add the apps I need. For instance, I don't need to network with my other computers - data transfer is by ' sneakernet ' with a pen drive - and I'm sure there's quite a bit else I can live without which the standard DVD install will contain, such as chat. Conversely, I'll be installing some extras such as Google Earth using AutoX.So basically, will installing from a live CD be any real benefit or will I just be making work fro myself? I frequently notice updates which don't seem to have much to do with the apps I use regularly, but they may contain essential dependencies.
